Thomas C. Adler Author- CAMPINGLY YOURS, A Memoir

      CAMPINGLY YOURS, A Memoir

      by Thomas C. Adler

      “Seamlessly woven with wisdom and wit, Thomas C. Adler’s heartfelt memoir blends forty-five years of summer camp with a lifetime of love. A tribute to family, friendship and the coming of age, Campingly Yours reflects on childhood in a bygone era-adventure, tradition and the timeless bond between idyllic parents and a devoted son.  From camper and counselor to owner and director, Adler’s nostalgic personal journey is seasoned with humor and insight, courage and character.  Engaging from beginning to end, Adler masterfully captures the essence of summer camp at Chippewa Ranch…with the North Star as his constant guide.

      The majority of the author’s proceeds will be donated to the Lou and Renee Rosenblum Foundation and the Camp For All Kids Foundation–helping children from all over the country and world have a chance to attend summer camp.
