“For the whole week, I couldn’t wait to go back to my real life, you know? Now I feel like my real life is fake and camp is real.”
Last summer, I did not — much to my lingering chagrin — return to Camp Ridgecrest. Ridgecrest was that magical (though often daunting) land from the final chapters of Struggle Central. Early into 2013, I was convinced I’d return to “Struggle Central” for a second summer of struggle and redemption alike.
