Had to turn it off

From the cover art, I thought "Letters from Camp" would have been a good listen for my kids. But after ghost stories about killing campers, shaving women's private parts, and wearing thongs, we turned it off and deleted it. Not something I need my 8 and 10 year old boys listening to.

Politics - really

One of the reasons I got this was the fact that it was kids at camp. I'm only on week 5 and there have bee several comments on politics. :0(

Great right up until the ending.

So this book was fun. Yes it pokes at politics and a little at religion, but it's not a big deal even as someone that is usually on the other side of the isle. It's kids repeating what their parent's told them and I like it. It adds flavor to the characters, and frankly some of the burns are just kind of hilarious. Up until the last episode I found it great. The last episode though is rough. The mystery is solved and all you can do is go Oh No. Because despite what the authors want you to believe, this girl hasn't had the character development or the maturity to handle the situation the way she did. Nothing in the previous episodes leads me to believe that this girl would make the choice she did. Granted it was the right one in that moment, but it wasn't in character, and it felt like A. The writers were trying to make a political statement. and B. Like they had written themselves into a corner. But what comes afterwards is worse.

This will be spoiled here, because it is so out of left field that it doesn't effect the rest of the story. Mookies "camp sister" runs away at 15 and asks her to keep it quiet that she is even alive. This is framed in the light of the previous revilations and it seems to me at least to imply that Mookie made the "Right" choice and didn't tell anyone. But that isn't the right choice. Her "Camp big sister" is 15. Yes there might be extenuating circumstances, but she is 15. (And I say might as the book seems to want it to be related to the previous decision, but everything in this girls character makes it seem like it was to be with her 19 year old swim teacher.)

Everything up to the last episode was handled really well, but the ending was poorly handled at least up to this point. If more episodes come out, I may update this, but as it is I found the ending badly mismanged.

I just loved this

It felt true! There wasn’t one stereotype character. The kids were like actual kids, and funny. I hated to see it end, really!

Fun book, excellent narration

I really enjoyed the story, the narration, the pacing, and the references to the 1990's. The story was clever and fun without being sugary. There are a few teen references, which I why I would probably say ages 12 and up--but you know your child better than I do.
The narration of this book/podcast was excellent. It makes all the difference when listening to a story like this. Sunny Sandler was fantastic. I would definitely listen to her again. And Jamie Lee Curtis was great as usual.

Please make more episodes!

Very charming, but think final episode is missing?

I enjoyed listening but I think that the final episode is missing? Either that or it ends very abruptly!

slice of life story

The cast were really good.
Not my usual thing but I really enjoyed it.
Good for chilling out as it reminds me of other adventure books from childhood.

Charming, quirky and fun

Absolutely loved this sparkling gem and ended up listening to it all in one go. It has mystery, quirky characters and plenty of laughs with some sage life advice thrown in for good measure. Well done writers, cast and crew.

Enjoyable and entertaining!

I enjoyed listening to this podcast. There were a few very funny bits that really made me laugh out loud and I really enjoyed the lead narrator Mookie. I thought all the narrator's were brilliant - my favourite had to be the Australian Fanny! The story was good but I'm not sure what happened at the end. I feel a bit like there should be another chapter to tell us the rest. Please!
