Iris Krasnow started going to summer camp at age 5. She sat around a fire roasting marshmallows until they burned; chased fireflies that dotted the night sky; swam in the expansive Blue Lake; and made friends that have lasted a lifetime, learning lessons along the way that she follows to this day.

Now decades later, she returned to Camp Agawak in Wisconsin as a staff member to help resurrect Agalog, the camp’s defunct magazine that she wrote for as a child. She’s been doing this every summer for five years, participating in the same activities she loved as a young girl now filled with the wisdom, perspective, and appreciation that comes with age.

A nostalgic, reminiscent memoir written from the heart, CAMP GIRLS details the essential life skills that formed who Iris became, and also the feelings of belonging to a family, not of blood, but of history, loyalty, and tradition. For Iris and many others, camp is key to fulfillment and success in life.
