Dear Reader,

What’s the most number of movies you’ve ever watched in a single day? I think I hit a new high on Saturday when I watched five movies. I wasn’t feeling great and laying around on the sofa was about all I was good for.

And since I bought the Roku box and have a Netflix subscription, I was able to download movies to my heart’s content. What an entertainment bargain! Compared to the cost of renting DVDs or buying premium cable channels, I love Netflix! And my Roku gives me the ability to watch an unlimited number of Netflix movie downloads on my big TV.

Tell me how many movies you’ve watched in a day, find out which movies I saw, and learn more about the Roku:

See ya on the Net,

Summer camp can be a wonderful growth experience for kids and teens. But finding the right camp can be a stressful task for parents. The following camp directories will help because they allow you to search for the perfect camping venue by many different criteria. My recommendation? Don’t stop at just one directory, because none of them cover all the camp possibilities.

Allen’s Guide
Allen’s Guide is divided into ten primary categories, including the usual Day Camps, Residential Camps, and Teen Camps. But they also include Special Needs Programs, Religious Camps, European Camps, and Self Improvement Camps that you might not find listed elsewhere. Special teen-only sections include Hostels, Study Abroad, Student Travel and Summer Jobs.

A few of the unique categories at CampResource.com are Fantasy Summer Camps (such as baseball and rock ‘n roll), Veterinary Science Camps, and Modeling Camps. Their listings can be browsed via category, by use of the drop-down state menu, or from their search form. From their Camp Talk collection of articles, come these words of advice. “Camp should be a refreshing change of pace, surroundings, and atmosphere, providing a wholesome escape from the pressures of school and the distractions of the urban environment. It should not be hectic!”

“Because every child deserves a summer at camp!” In addition to camps in all fifty states, KidsCamps.com lists international camps in dozens of countries (arranged in alphabetic order from Argentina to United Kingdom). Of course the biggest camp categories are Day Camps, Traditional Overnight Camps, and Sports Camps, where you begin by specifying a specific interest, and select a state.
