A wide range of summer camp experiences are available to young people who may want to go beyond the ordinary campfire singalong experience. For Dangerous Children living in remote or overly mundane locations, such camps may provide them with training, experience, and personal links not available otherwise. Here are a few camps that may be of interest to parents and Dangerous Children:
Outdoor Leadership Camps
Three of the most highly regarded in North America, offering a wide range of outdoor experiences on rock, snow, ice, water, and more:
Military camps provide a simulated military training experience, focusing on various aspects of military philosophy and practise — depending upon the school.

Most Dangerous Children Find These Camps to be Enjoyable Diversions from Training
Dangerous Child training can involve most (or all) of the areas of interest mentioned above. But Dangerous Children in many geographical areas do not have the opportunity to mix with the broad range of other children of different backgrounds and life orientations as are represented at most of these camps. Since their ordinary self-taught education and highly disciplined training are more rigorous than most of the camp training above, the kids and youth are able to spend plenty of time studying their fellow campers and understanding how social groups form and dissolve. They can also form special friendships that may last for years to come.
