  1. Visiting day should be abolished by all camps. Besides being extremely difficult for the parents most important it is terrible for the kids and any mechanech would tell u it is terrible for the kids and should be cancelled.

    • Okay fine. I happen to agree with you. Camps should start paying their staff members a living wage and not have to rely on tips to make it through the summer.
