Summer Camp Week!

It's Summer Camp Week on Food52!

July 25, 2016
Can you spot our smiling co-founder Amanda, camper at Pocono Invitational Basketball Camp?

Being a grown-up is a drag, primarily because most of us don't have summer vacation—which means we can't go to camp!!

To fill our void, and have a little fun, we're taking this whole website to summer camp.

All this week on Food52, you can expect:

  • It's-Its, Choco Tacos, Lunchables, and something called Mookies
  • So many s'mores (even for vegans and gluten-freers and people who are "so over" s'mores)
  • Boozy bug juice
  • Romance
  • Heartbreak
  • Swim class
  • Card games
  • International summer camp traditions
  • Playtime on Facebook Live
  • Art hour every day at noon (when it's too hot to run around)
  • Bedtime snacks every single night

And, of course, a lot of warm fuzzies, nostalgia, and definitely more embarrassing photos.

To keep up with all the good times, at the end of each Summer Camp Week post, you'll find an illustration of a campsite (we call the canoe!): Just click on it to see more articles. And keep checking back, since we'll be adding them throughout the week!

Food52 (we cook 52 weeks a year, get it?) is a food and home brand, here to help you eat thoughtfully and live joyfully.

Oh what fun--I will be checking this out all week!!! I would love to go to a summer camp (even as an adult). Never did as a kid because my family did not have much money but as a junior in high school I was able to be a camp counselor for a week up in the L.A. mountains. I don't think I did such a great job as I was too busy making crafts and sharing the experiences with the wee ones rather hen helping :-)
