What's your ideal summer camp?

Children kayaking

Loads of kids are off to a special fit camp for the summer holidays to help them lose weight and learn to eat more healthily.

So that got us thinking... what sort of summer camp would you like to go to?

Anything is possible. You could camp, stay in a mansion or maybe even a haunted house?

And what would you want to do when you're there? Extreme sports, film-making, fashion designing or something totally out of this world?
