Horrible, horrible place Aug 11, 2009
reviewer: Josh ploof from Vernon, CT
After 3 years of my dad wanting me to go, I finally went this year... and left after the first day. When I first pulled in, I thought it looked like a nice place, a nice stone wall outside the camp looked nice... then I got in the camp. It looks as though the camp owner takes all of the money (which when calculated, they make almost $4,000,000 per year) and spend it all on themselves. The tennis courts are all broken. The basketball court has one hoop, and two roll-on-wheel baskets. The jet skis look like they were purchased 20 years ago and the herms (where the boys sleep) have been there since the camp opened, not touched (I know because there is A LOT of graffiti written all over the walls saying which years the kids stayed like '79-'80) Also, I was told during the bunk meeting that once a week the bunk would have to scrub the toilets, scrub the showers, and mop the floors with amonia, which when paying $5,000 to get in, I don't expect to be scrubbing toilets. You also were not allowed to do ANYTHING by yourself, you had to bring a friend with you, so if you didn't make any friends you basically weren't allowed to do anything. It felt to me like I was in a prison. Also, the security there...well it sucks seeing how I was able to escape, yes, escape from the camp with ease. I packed my bags and walked out through the woods, and Noone in the camp knew, they wouldn't have known, except I asked a local restaurant owner to use his phone, and after refusing to let me use it, called the camp. So they would have never even known I was missing for the entire night. Is that really a place you want to send your kids to, a place where they can easily leave? I think not. I would think for a place that nets almost $4,000,000 in 3 months would make it a little of a nicer, less dirty environment, instead the camp owner takes it upon himself to buy 2 BMW's and 2 Furrarris, it's all about them making as much money as possible in my honest opinion.
