A longing for lodging

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Still looking for the right summer camp for the kids? Keep looking.

Bear Lodge Bargain: Your child deserves the best. But if you're looking for something a little different — and a lot cheaper — look no further. The Bear Lodge Bargain offers a summer of half-price fun, thanks to its stunning location in a pine forest that just happens to be a sanctuary for, well, bears. Grizzlies, mostly. Since the Park Service is required to conduct a yearly census of the (skyrocketing) bear population, we get the land free and pass the savings on to YOU. The census forms, we pass on to your children. For a stimulating summer they'll long remember, think Bear Lodge Bargain, where, "We're making tracks!"

Camp Sioux M: When the going gets tough, the tough get counsel. And that's just what your budding lawyers and lawyerettes will start providing when they sign on the dotted line, with proper notarization. Activities include underwater subpoena serving, synchronized jury selection and the much-loved, end-of-summer three-legged ambulance race. "Let's go, Sioux M!"

Little Mall by the 9-Plex: Who says "fun" has to rhyme with "sun"? Ditch the Coppertone, grab your wallet and enjoy all the fun of being a teenager — whether you're 5 or 15! Our days are crammed with more fun than an Abercrombie shelf. Our counselors — when not on latte break — are pumped for HOURS of browsing. And when you see the summer movies coming out, you'll be like, omigod! So psyched! So don't walk, have your mom RUN you over to Little Mall: "Two whole floors of summer!"

Giggles 'n' Googles: Is your pre-schooler still singing, skipping and wasting valuable edu-time? Catch up before the crucial kindergarten year! Your little ones will thank you (eventually) for fun-filled days of online research, Web design and (August only) elementary hacking. Nearly 20 minutes alloted each day for healthy snacks and stretching. "Giggles 'n' Googles: Where young minds grow old."

At Croquet Boot Camp, it's EVERY CAMPER FOR HIMSELF in a hail of whizzing mallets, balls and EXTREME CROQUET! Parents must sign a waiver and then GET LOST. "If you think you've got what it takes: THINK CROQUET. YAAAAAAH!"

Snowshoe Mountain: Bring your snowshoes. Climb a mountain. Duh. If you insist on more details, this camp is not for you.

Camp Shockinaw: Must be 18 to enlist ... er ... join. Activities include training, travel, aiming, ducking. Arts and crafts: Make your own body armor. Field trips to places of interest via almost fully protected vehicles. All-camp treasure hunt for WMD. "Camp Shockinaw: Building character — and nations."
