When I was a teen in 1970s London, I dreamt of going to one of the Camps in the USA that I had seen in the movies. Camps looked fun, inclusive, and full of activity and new friends to make – usually set on a lake in a beautiful location. At that time in my life – I would have been lucky to get a summer day to trip to a beach in grey old England, and my dreams of camp life in America – would remain just that – dreams.
