16 Overly-Dramatic Letters Kids Wrote Home From Summer Camp

Camp season is upon us, and as every parent who's shipped off a child for a week, a month, or more, knows, there's nothing more exciting than getting a letter home in the mail. And that's because kids don't just say the darnedest things, they write them, too. Here, 18 of our favorite letters from campers to their doting parents — from the sentimental and sweet to the hysterical to the bold and blunt.
