If you’ve ever asked your child “how was your day” you know how frustrating it can be to get any answer besides “fine”. The key to getting a real answer is asking a direct question. Here are 18 questions to help you get some info about what’s going on at camp. Note: Please try to limit your questions to three per letter, or your camper’s eyes might gloss over and overwhelm will kick in. Let’s take this whole question and answer thing slow and steady.
