Popular Summer Vacation Spots

Who can focus on algebra when you're going to spend the next couple months lounging on the beach? Check out some of these fun vacation spots that kids around the world are daydreaming about!

Summer Camps

The first U.S. summer camp opened its doors on an island in Squam Lake, New Hampshire in 1881. Only boys from rich American families were welcome at the camp and only five boys arrived that summer to learn to fish, chop wood and stay in the rustic log cabin. But it didn't take long for a ton of other camps to pop up all over North America. Soon there was a place for boys and girls of all colors and religions to learn to swim, go on [kwlink 826]hikes and do crafts. Today there are over 10,000 summer camps operating in North America with over four million kids attending them. Will you be one of those four million this summer?

Amusement Parks

It's every kid's dream to go to Disneyland at least once. Have you been dreaming of the giant roller coasters and magical tea cup ride, cotton candy you get to stuff your face with and meeting Mickey Mouse? Too bad we don't always get what we want, huh? Take a consolation prize this summer if you can't afford Disneyland, and drag your 'rents to the local fair.

The Beach

Whether it's the local watering hole, Huntington Beach or Maine, serious sand-lounging time is what lots of peeps like to do during their summer holidays. There's nothing like sipping an ice-cold lemonade in your stylin' new bathing suit and checkin' out all the hotties walkin' by. Are you planning some serious scuba diving time this summer?

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
