Camp means something different to everyone. The place you had your first kiss. Where you learned to shoot an arrow. Precious time away from parents. It's an unique challenge for any artist to capture.

As art director of the Inlander, it's a task that usually falls to me. But while giving a talk to a graphic design class at North Idaho College, I offered up the opportunity for students to take a whack at designing the Summer Camps cover. They didn't disappoint. Turn to page 28 to see the one I chose to use, but first take a moment to peruse the other submissions here. In them, you can see flashes of brilliance and nostalgia for that most important rite of passage: camp. ♦
