How to Choose the Perfect Summer Camp

Summer is just about here which means school will be out and it’s time to decide how you’re going to spend those sunny days. If you’re considering going to a summer camp this year to fill the time deciding which one is best for you can be hard. Check out these tips on how to choose a summer camp!

What Are You Into?

Summer camp is a great opportunity to expand your horizons, especially if you have a hobby that you don’t have the time or means to pursue during the school year. There are summer camps for everything from horseback riding and tennis to theater or art, and chances are you can find one that’s a great fit for you! One of the best things about going to summer camp is meeting new people and getting a fresh start. You can just relax and be yourself when you’re with other people who love something as much as you do.  Alternatively you may just want to unwind with a classic camp experience, like making s’mores by a campfire and swimming every day at a lake.

Make a List

After you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for, sit down with your parents and make a list of what else you are looking for in a camp. Do you want a sleep-away camp? Do you want to go where your friends or siblings are going? How far away is it and what can you afford (questions your parents will definitely ask!)?

How to Choose the Perfect Summer CampDo you want a traditional summer camp, complete with smores and scary stories by the campfire?
 

Ready to Research

Once you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for it’ll be easy to go online and see what options suit you best. If you’re unsure about a camp call and ask for more information, most camps are more than happy to help you find the best fit. A great way to find the best camp can sometimes be word of mouth, if you know anyone who has been to one and you’re considering it you should ask them how their experience was to see if it sounds like your kind of thing.

Once you’ve got all the information all there is left to do is decide on your favorite and enjoy your summer!

Then again, women couldn't own and manage land while married until 1718....and it wasn't national until around 1850. You should probably specify where, because the place where I live wasn't even colonized yet in 1718.  Providence of Pennsylvania. However most states didn't accept it until around 1840-50. Maryland had achieved statehood in 1788, but it took them until 1841 to legalize married women to own property, and even them they had no control over the property. This is the case for many states. Face it, early America treated women as property....she was right on that part. But that's all changed. I'm not denying it. I was merely suggesting that you should specify where. Of course, in all the dates you've listed so far, men were also to be bought and sold as property in the U.S. in the states that would become the Confederacy. I would say that their treatment as property was much harsher than that of women in many cases, but yes, of course both men and women have been treated as property by the law in the past, and still are in many places today.    American Slavery didn't discriminate between genders. And for women, it was the same for blacks and whites. Also, pinning slavery and the confederacy together? I thought you knew more about the topic. But that's another debate.

The fight for women's rights has gone on and those for feminist  rights seem to have won. Sure, there is no way to fully promote equal rights, but when it comes to women's place in society -at least in places such as the United States and European countries and in many other regions- it's been on a more leveled playing field with men.  So here? Here where I am? I'm satisfied. I don't believe that women's rights have been neglected. In some ways, they're held above those of men. But out there? Beyond the borders of my "humble" dwelling, there are some problems. Women are abused and seen as lesser. (I'm trying to put this in nicer terms. I don't think it's working... :/)  I think we need to work on fixing those, instead of complaining about how we're deprived as our rights. Because honestly? We have no idea how bad it is.  Sorry,  I went on a mini tangent.  I think your tangent was very good. You seem to have a pretty solid grasp of the situation, and you also are capable of expressing it well. Great post, great job. Agreed. Thanks guys (:
