While I salute the camp's efforts to provide an experience for kids *whose families can afford it*, your phrase "What if you were a child and couldn't go to camp..." doesn't make me want to help. I was a child and couldn't go to camp; my brother couldn't go to camp; my kid couldn't go to camp. In each case, it was about finances and/or transportation.
It's not the end of the world if a kid can't go to camp. Millions of kids don't go to camp.
On the upside - I, my brother, my kids -- we all have enjoyed many other experiences with family, at home - happy, fun, economical and convenient. Camp is not the ultimate child experience.
