This One Time at Camp Krasselt…

Another summer means another batch of interns at Cramer-Krasselt Chicago and another edition of “Camp Krasselt,” where young advertisers from around the globe converge on the Windy City. There will be advertising, there will be drama, there will be high-pressure deadlines and maybe, if we’re lucky, there will be some romance mixed in too.

The 10 campers at Camp Krasselt hail from all over the world and range from young 19-year-old account manager Caroline Lendl from the University of Alabama all the way to seasoned 28-year-old copywriter Marty Muthuswami of Port Huron, Michigan. Some advice for this new batch of campers: don’t drink from the Chicago River unless you want to risk growing another limb, the term “flash-mob” means something entirely different in Chicago, and what happens at ad camp stays at ad camp.
