Summer Camp … In Prison?

Post Date: August 1, 2013

At a time when a lot of parents are sending their kids off to summer camp (or bringing them home from camp), this moving and important video from the Washington Post highlights quite an unusual summer camp experience:  visiting Dad in prison for a week.

This video should be shared with any parent who thinks prison time is just a “slap on the wrist,” or that prisons are just comfort lodges with too much cable TV and air conditioning. If this video doesn’t move them, they probably don’t have a pulse.

And if you have a child with a parent in prison, check out this resource from Sesame Street to help your children deal.
