Joseph Makarewicz Milestones Vol. Adjacent to the new plant were two communities, the tiny Borough of Aliquippa, site of a popular amusement park on the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad, and the even smaller village of Woodlawn. In time, the communities were to grow and eventually merge to form the largest borough in Beaver County. But the history of the area in these intervening years was colored by a population factor missing from most of the early communities but common to steel and mining towns - the arrival of many immigrant workers from Southern and Eastern Europe, and of blacks from the impoverished southern states.
When it comes time to say goodbye to your child, you may find yourself feeling a little emotional. One way to help with the transition is to have camp letters and cards ready to send, so that you can be prepared to stay in touch with your child as soon as you drop them at sleepaway camp.
Receiving a letter from home can help to ease homesickness for kids, and also give them a way to share their camp experience with you. However, getting a letter from mom and dad can also make a child feel more homesick if it touches on certain subjects.
Read below for a guide on how to write the perfect letter to your child. Especially for first-time campers, it can be really reassuring to hear this from mom and dad.
Encourage them to set goals during their time at camp such as having fun, learning a new skill, and making friends. You can also ask them simple questions that they will be able to respond to in a letter or share with you when you pick them up, such as, what is your favorite camp meal or what new activities have you tried.
Give simple updates that are positive and encouraging, and try not to give the illusion that home is just not the same without them. Also, avoid laying on the guilt. The worst thing you can do is make them feel guilty for having a great time at camp while you are at home missing them.
In general, avoid telling them you miss them. Instead, tell them you love them and that you are happy they are having so much fun at camp. Use silly fonts, lots of colors, and fun paper to make your letters bright and exciting.
Include a riddle, puzzle, or joke for your child to share with new camp friends. If care packages are accepted at the camp, you may be able to include their favorite snack or baked goods. Any letter topic or idea that will make your child miss home should be avoided.
Look for fun cards with music or jokes or tuck a picture in the letter of you doing chores. Writing camp letters can provide peace of mind for both you and your child, and provides a jovial way to keep in touch without being an overbearing parent.
