Since old fashioned pen to paper is usually the required form of communication at camps, cool sleepaway camp postcards make it easy! They keep writing short and sweet, don’t require envelopes, and if you give your kid a set all stamped and ready to go, the odds are in your favor to receive some updates and maybe even a few I miss you‘s

Even from kids who prefer to communicate in emojis.

So grab one of these 5 cool sets we found and mail them to your camper in a care package, or send them off in that trunk ready for sending the moment you leave them to their counselors. Okay, maybe the next day. Maybe.
