My daughter goes to camp. Last year camp was $3,300 for 8 weeks. The camp provided transportation, swimming everyday, arts & crafts, and other activities. I had to provide the food, snack & drinks. She had a great time up to a point and didn't enjoy the camp. She mentioned last year she doesn't want to go back this year. The camp now is $3,465, for 7 weeks. I want her to go to this camp, which is very expensive. It's $5,900 for 7 weeks (we are going away the first week). The camp provides snacks, lunch, drinks, transportation, has swimming every day, arts & crafts and other activities. I like that both camps end on August 20th. I've found other camps that finish on the 13th of August, and would have to find somebody to watch her for that one week. I've looked at many camps, but I'm not sure.

"Is that what rich people do, dump their kids at camp to get rid of them? That's just sad"
Actually my camp provides camper ships to about %40 of our population. We work on character development and leadership skills, and have terrific outcomes. It's really not to long when you break down how a community is formed and operates, it's almost a few weeks to short. I have seen some kids learn some amazing lesions and develop into amazing young men as a direct result of what they learned from the experience of living at at camp!! Do some research, there is tons of it out there... it's very beneficial to the children!!!

$5900 is middle of the road as far as 7 week residential summer camps go. I am on the board of a Boys Camp in Maine and we are around $6400 for 7 weeks. We have done a lot of market research on the price and fall in the middle of the spectrum. Are you a Camp snob?? IDK what that means exactly, but if you so am I!!! LOL
