Unusual Summer Camps for Kids
Unusual Summer Camps for Kids

After reading about the Hunger Games Camp in Florida, I checked out some other “unusual” summer camps for kids.

HUNGER GAMES CAMP

“I will probably kill you first,” Julianna Pettey 12, told her new friend Rylee Miller, also 12. They’re both at the Hunger Games Camp in Largo, Fla.
The camp’s director, Jared D’Alessio, wanted a nonviolent, bloodless version of the wildly popular book and movie series in which teens murder each other in a tournament to advance.
At the real-life camp, kids compete in a variety of athletic and intellectual challenges, but the kiddos seem unwilling to compromise on the death thing. Frances Pool-Crane, the youngest camper at 10 years old, decorated a poster for the Games with “LOSING MEANS CERTAIN DEATH.”

Juggling, clowning, unicycling, wire-walking, stilt-walking, and acrobatics. Every two-week session ends with a show where campers reveal their brand-new circus skills.
