For many Americans, going to a summer sleep-away camp as a child is an experience to be treasured well into adulthood. Present and former campers often speak of the experiences and the friendships that resulted from their time at sleep-away camp as some of the most important and meaningful ones of their lives. Critics, however, often view summer sleep-away camps in a very different way, insisting that they are elitist and that the children who are sent there miss out on valuable bonding time with their parents and the friends who live in their hometowns.
On the whole, is going to a summer sleep-away camp as a child a positive experience or a negative one? Why? Plan and write a response in which you state your position and persuade readers to agree with you. Support your opinions with reasons and examples drawn from your personal experiences, if you have attended such camps, or your knowledge of the experience of friends and siblings.
