You either went to summer camp as a kid or you didn’t — and that difference is profound. For those of us who went to summer camp, those stories stay with us for a lifetime. Sometimes, they can be hard to share with people who didn’t. In Episode 16, we’re going to try. Eric Smith is going to tell a story about how he dealt with some strange wildlife at summer camp.
