Thousands of children attended summer camps in twentieth-century Ontario. Did parents simply want a break, or were broader developments at play? The Nurture of Nature explores how competing cultural tendencies ii½ antimodern nostalgia and modern sensibilities about the landscape, child rearing, and identity ii½ shaped the development of summer camps and, consequently, modern social life in North America.
