Alisa, I have a strong feeling that you are right. I think having to
be "good enough" to be admitted to camp is just crazy. Give the
children opportunities for learning, but don't expect any particular
productivity. They will learn to give the adults what they want, or
to rebel instead, but they will not learn to love those things.
