Despite the looming freedom of a few weeks as empty-nesters, most of the parents that send kids to far-flung camps still want to hear from the spawn on occasion.

You might get your active kid to send one of these...they are so cool. Personalized cards from StationeryStudio.

The set of ten cards, pen and envelopes ($8.99) can be found at Amazon.
