Anonymous asked: I absolutely love this blog, I'm pretty sure I reblog half of it, at least. But I have to wonder about the safety issue when it comes to this camp roll call thing. I was definitely a little shocked to see my camp on here, because we are told to never put information about ourselves on the internet. I realize you're not giving addresses or anything, and they are surely in other places on the internet, but the less the name is out there the better. Kids' safety is number one.
There is no obligation whatsoever for someone to like or reblog a post from here. I’m only publishing camps that have been submitted to me, with the information that is submitted. I am doing none of the research to find where in the US or Canada these camps are located. Some camps have been submitted and not reblogged, I think this is for that reason. Someone related to that camp wants the name out there, wants others to know that someone who follows us goes there, but they don’t want to attach themselves to it, and that is completely fine.
I also agree that safety is important however I am also not naive enough to believe that this is the only piece of personal information that people are associating themselves with. I am also slightly more ok with the idea of associating someone with a camp rather than a school. Camps are not required and therefore it is harder to determine a specific location based around that, or more simply- people travel to get to their camps. The roll call is an opt-in way for people to connect with each other.
