0730 Camp Stories For many, spending time "up north", whether at a cottage or at camp, is a summer ritual. It's an essential activity to disconnect from the stress of the city and RE-connect with your soul. For Joanne Kates, it's most like coming home. The Toronto-based restaurant reviewer has been a camper, a counsellor and now a camp director at Camp Arowhon for most of her life. She speaks with Karen Gordon about the lasting value of lifelong lessons learned at summer camp.
