Unlike most camps, the one I went to when I was a kid actually allowed parents to send food. So there was no need to smuggle anything in. I was perhaps a bit more spoiled than the typical camper: My mother would send up a huge package filled with nosh before me and my siblings even left for camp, so that when we arrived we’d have a box full of goodies waiting for us.
Sleepaway camps are great: The kids get to run around and be one with nature; while you, the parent, get to enjoy your summer free of kvetchy heat-stroke-afflicted children.
My mother wasn’t a candy person. (She was a salad person — though in restaurants she told everyone at the table what to order so she could taste the things she’d have preferred to eat if she wasn’t on a perpetual diet.) I can’t remember or even imagine my mother indulging in a Snickers or a Milky Way bar.
