    Think long and hard before waiting in line 14 hours for this "camp" that feels more like a school. Not enough movement for younger kids and not enough interaction. 4 weeks on same subject too with no fun experiments. No facilities for rainy days or heat waves and no more swimming make this a poor choice for young boys.
