Mr. Dave gave some good tips on how to get your own personal kid to tell
you about camp. I'd love to get more ideas on this!
One of my favorite ways to get my two boys to talk about just about
anything is to put them in the car and drive across Houston in rush hour
traffic. They both seem to want to tell me the most amazing things when
my mind is occupied with trying to stay in my lane, find the exit, and
watch my language!
My husband and I were with them this year at camp, but we still found
out some interesting stuff when we got back.

I love this question! As long as you don't think that it was your
child, this could lead to learning maybe more than you want to know.
