Summer camp in the 21st century

As a kid, I never was sent away to summer camp and I probably wouldn’t have liked such organized jollity anyway. Just passing on this link to a NYT story about summer camps, and you can pretty much predict what it’s about — moneyed parents demanding “amenities” for their children. Except that the amenities seem to now be about college-application-padding activities.

The story does focus on a summer camp that still tries to be traditional, however.
