This technically isn`t a "green" post, but it has a natural angle and didn`t fit anywhere else so I put it in the Green forum.
The Boston Globe published an article yesterday about how traditional summer camps are making a comeback. What I found most fascinating was the brief history of the "nature based" summer camp:
the societal changes that originated the concept (children becoming disconnected from nature),
societal changes that caused the nature centric summer camp to dwindle (technology),
and new concerns (not so different than the old concerns) that are bringing them back, with technology as an additional driver.
I have a friend who is writing a business plan for a summer camp. He`s going to love this article. I thought that I would post it here in case somebody else was too...
