Back in the day, summer camp meant swimming in the lake, walking through the woods or horseback riding in a meadow. Kids can still do that, of course, but some camps have taken the summer experience to an entirely other level — an awesome one. Kids can kayak through the rapids in Canada, become a Hollywood stunt person and learn how to surf on Hawaii's Kona Coast.
If you have an adventurous kid and (in some cases) a few thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, these might the camps for you.
