Aug 01, 2014

Summer camp can be an unforgettable experience, whether you're making friends or going on an adventure. Take a look at the Top 10 Summer Camp Movies!

No.10: Summercamp!

Summercamp! is a documentary about the real-life campers at Wisconsin's Swift Nature Camp, and gives us a little slice of life when it comes to campers' experiences - from heartbreaks to successes.

No.9: SpaceCamp

Loads of kids dream of being astronauts, but the kids who go to Space Camp (which is a real thing!) are serious about it, and this oldie-but-a-goodie is all about a bunch of space campers being forced to put their new learned skills to the test when they're forced into orbit.

No.8: Camp Nowhere

For every kid who loves camp, there's one who doesn't (but of course is forced to go anyway). Camp Nowhere is about a group of camp misfits who subvert the system by creating their own camp and making their own rules - anything goes at Camp Nowhere!

No.7: Heavy Weights

Some plus-size kids are lured into what they think will be an easy weight-loss camp only to discover that the place is run by a deranged ex-fitness instructor who makes sure good health is hell in this offbeat comedy.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
