With the COVID-19 pandemic many parents are fantasizing about sending their children and spouses off to camp for the duration of the pandemic. I myself am thinking about starting a new camp and I’m calling it Camp Buck-Up! This camp will be for all the people out there who have to be told to “buck-up” on a regular basis.
