Where Were You When I Was Young?
Ok, here's an Ohio YMCA summer camp that gets it!
Weeks are themed to popular book (and movie) series like Ranger's Apprentice, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the new Brotherband Chronicles by Flanagan. The skills kids learn - horseback riding, survival skills, team building, archery - are much the same as any summer camp but with a literary twist that lets kids experience favorite books vicariously.
Hmm, sounds lots like some of the fun book-themed fun we create. You go, Ohio Y!
