Technology And Summer Camp
from the not-so-perfect-together dept
I went to summer camp in a time before mobile phones, but I’m so connected to mine now that I can understand kids who are upset to leave their mobile phones home while they go off to summer camp.

Of course, for others, summer camp is a better way to get connected to their technology obsession, as more and more computer summer camps are popping up. While I can understand the appeal, I kind of remember the whole point of summer camp being to enjoy the outdoors…
