After keeping Lucas home with a babysitter for around 2.5 years, he started camp this summer. It’s been a little over 3 weeks of camp and he seems to love it so far.
Lucas’ camp is less than a five-minute ride from home. As a kid I wanted to go to sleepaway camp but didn’t get a chance to. Maybe when Lucas gets to be a little older Kim and I should consider sending him to sleepaway camp in North Korea!
Yes, you read that correctly.
According to Mashable, Songdowon International Children’s Camp, has been in operation for over 30 years and “was originally intended mainly to deepen relations with friendly countries in the Communist or non-aligned world. But officials say they are willing to accept youth from anywhere — even the United States.”
Camp just reopened with over 300 children and teens coming from Russia, China, Vietnam, Ireland and Tanzania. It goes for 8 days and seems to be a pretty fair price at $270 which also includes a tour of Pyongyang.
So would I send Lucas to North Korea for camp? I think that I would consider it in the future.
Here is my plan: Since I’ve been dying to visit North Korea, Kim and I can visit the country while Lucas spends 8 days in camp. Then when camp is over we can meet up and go to China for a visit.
This sounds like a fantastic plan to me although I’m not so sure that Kim would agree!
Would you consider sending your kid to North Korea for camp?
