Mem­ory lane

ELLE (Canada) - - Letters -

Thank you, Olivia Stren, for putting an­other spin on child­hood sum­mer-camp ex­pe­ri­ences in “Cabin Fever” [July 2016]. Like you, I tried to avoid the an­nual rit­ual at all costs. I also never fit in with the “sporty, hearty and peppy” girls who thrived in that set­ting. I was sur­prised that, even after all these years, your story stirred up mem­o­ries of how it felt to be an out­sider. It’s al­ways a good re­minder to be com­pas­sion­ate in set­tings where I might feel at home but oth­ers may be strug­gling. Jes­sica, Edm on­ton
