Summer Camp For Web Addiction
from the Betty-Ford-for-kids dept
The point of summer camp, generally, is to get kids out in the sun, and doing outdoorsy stuff. There are some computer camps, but, for the most part, computers and camp don’t mix at all. So, I’m not really sure what’s different about this one summer camp in Germany, but they’re marketing themselves as a way to break kids of their online addiction. Seems like a marketing ploy to me. Just about any summer camp (minus the computer ones) would have the same effect. All this one really does is bring up unfounded fears about the “dangers” of internet addiction.
