  • I think they're going too far towards regulating indoor camps - yes, they need regulations same as any other camp, but to regulate based on 'dangerous' games is pathetic. No wonder there are so many helicopter moms these days.

  • What!? Sounds like this law is designed to get more money from summer camps. It's sad because these are all activities that promote health and social skills.
