It’s been over a century since families first began sending their children to summer camp, some for as long as two months at a time. In North America, the very first of these establishments came about in the 1880’s. Victorian society was so concerned with falling birth rates, degeneracy, and boys becoming overly feminized by too much time in the home that summer camp became the antidote to unwanted and disorderly behavior: a way to encourage good health, sound morals and the manliness and discipline the era prided itself upon.
