Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

Cameron has written 76 articles for us.


  1. Perfect read for at the airport. Didn’t know it was possible to be more excited for camp, but now somehow I am.

  2. Yes! This is totally the essence of camp!
    I will now use this comic as part of my explanation when i try to descibe camp.

    I hope everyone is enjoying the mountain!

  3. This is fantastic. I’ve never been to A-Camp, unfortunately, but I imagine I’d feel similarly.

    Your art is, as always, the best. :)
