MSBA Legal News Digest

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


Ever go to summer camp? When I was a kid I looked forward to a week at 4-H camp and two weeks at church camp. I learned a lot at both and a few nuggets of knowledge stuck: I can identify poison ivy, I can make a decent campfire, and white vinegar makes mosquito bites stop itching. In this edition of LND you'll find several stories about summer camp that I hope conjure fond memories. And to the boy at camp who constantly tried to scare me with frogs, you actually helped spark my fondness for the little creatures (not to eat, but admire) so, thank you.
