  1. ah yes, visiting day. a day filled with whining children in the fly infested, overpriced pizza shops upstate. a day filled with traffic jams,

  2. I stopped doing it years ago. If you are in a bungelow already, that’s one thing. But to shlep all the way from the City?! FOOL!

  3. You send ur kid to sleep away camp, you have NO choice but to come spend the day with them. See how they are doing, how they are feeling etc… It’s part of the package!!! No matter what age.

  4. Visiting day was invented to tip
    The staff so that the owners who are making huge sums if money do not have have to pay staff . It also justifies charging waiters and waitresses to work in their camp , through getting tipped.
