Summer Camp Guide: Activities Galore for S.B. Kids and Teens (Terry Ortega and Ginny Chung) Plus Camp Story Contest Winners

ON THE COVER: Photo by Turner & Fitch.

Mark Turner and Caitlin Fitch

When we asked Mark Turner and Caitlin Fitch, who snapped photos for our Summer Camp Guide this week, whether they'd had the camp experience themselves, we got mixed results. "I was awake the whole first night, freaking out," said Mark, "because the counselors told us a Peeping Tom troll lived there that would smell us and follow our scent all the way home." Caitlin answered, "Summer camp? Heck yeah! I wish I could play four square, swim in the pool, and make moss fairy houses all day, every day!" They'll have a new summer remembrance soon — hopefully a good one — as August is their wedding month. Pretty exciting? "That's really exciting!" they both agree.
