There is an Instagram account full of kids’ homesick letters from camp and it is hilarious

Homesickdotcom is an Instagram account full of letters that unhappy kids sent home from camp.

The account was started by two sisters. They started it after one of their kids wrote a dramatic letter from camp. They thought it was funny and posted it. They later learned that other parents had the same experience.

Some letters are polite, other letters, not so polite. Check out some of our favorite below!
