A blogger I follow posted a really helpful blog about using twitter (along with twitpic and 12 seconds) to update parents and families from camp.

I’ve gone to many camps where I would send an email to parents every day, just to update them. I always wanted to include lots of pictures and stuff, but it just took time away from focusing on the kids. I’ve created a yahoo group, email groups, calling posts and even had my admin email parents after I’d call her. But using twitter and twitpic is perfect. You can tweet about individual kids, activities or whatever.

I can promise you this. Next summer I will be using twitter for camp updates, unless something else comes along… or Jesus comes back. 😉
