Forget about the macaroni ashtrays, friendship bracelets and endless games of capture the flag. These days the traditional summer camp has a whole lot of competition with a slew of specialty themed camps that are taking place across the country.
It’s not just about a cabin and the great outdoors, these camps are focused. Very focused. These camps are for kids who have a specific interest, hobby or obsession. There are roller coaster camps, space camps, and secret agent camps just to name a few. Yeah, this ain’t the summer camp of my day, these camps are crazy cool. They are camps that I myself wouldn’t just want to send my kid to but ones I’d actually want to go to myself. Too bad I’m too old.
Check out these 10 super cool camps right here – do you have a favorite that you’d want to end your kid to?
