Commentator Earl Pomerantz remembers summer camp at Camp Ogama — a place that at first he despised, because it deprived him of all he held dear: food he liked, and privacy. He also hated sports, but found solace in the pageants that the campers put on. And as it turned out, he went back for many summers more.
