Bringing the Magic out of children: A summer camp with a difference

The joy with which children anticipate the two month long break from school in summer is often spoiled by the lack of choices that confronts them once it finally gets underway. The urban solution for this problem-the summer camp, a sometimes pricey but welcome day time getaway for children, is what working parents count on for the safe upkeep of their children. For the children it means much more: making new friends, learning an art/craft or two and exploring subjects that never make it to their curriculum at school.
