As for the camp topic: I love the idea, but the logistics of it are significant. Insurance and permits are nuts, of course, but even worse are the PARENTS. It would be a real tough sell getting parents on board with the idea, and even if they are, theyd try and micromanage things from afar. Trust me, I know, Ive worked at camps in the past. Helicopter-parenting gets worse and worse every year, as the generations of entitlement progress in their years, reproduce, and pass the entitlement on to their progeny. Also parents are getting more and more disassociated from nature and the outdoors and what it actually MEANS to be at camp and will beat down your doors making sure youre protecting little Jimmy and Sally from getting any skinned knees.
Sounds extreme? Its not. I had one parent once threaten to pull her kid out of camp and/or sue and/or get me fired because a rabbit nibbled a hole in her daughter's shirt.
