Specialty camps are mushrooming. Traditional camp will always be a mainstay, but now, many kids want to focus, not diversify – and their parents are behind them.
New twist on summer camps
MySummerCamps.com possesses thousands of listings for specialty camps, including, environmental and farming camps, computer and robotics camps, marine science and SCUBA camps, circus, fashion, and culinary camps - and more.
Associated Press reporter, Lisa Cornwell, wrote an article about the rise of specialty camps, and it was picked up by the Akron Beacon Journal - Ohio.com, and by The Chronicle Telegram in nearby Elyria, OH.
In a fun, wide-ranging piece, Ms. Cornwell describes the endless variety of specialty camps available in Ohio and other states: detective camps, comic book camps, sci fi and stunt camps, spa and foreign language camps, and more.
As a service to the readers, Lisa mentions several prominent summer camp web sites:
