the only circumstance in which I would safely send a girl to a bungalow colony is one where she will be living with a family member (older sister, aunt, ect)
No one else will watch her the way she needs to be watched. And even in the care of a family member, you’re rolling the dice. allit takes is one “ladies night out” (and there are numerous ones over the course of a summer) or one “quick trip to the city” (and there are several of those too) and the “watchers” are not watching.
Forget all assurances from the head staff, colony owner. Been to the mtns enough years to know that no one really watches the junior staffers. So unless you’re taking about a 20-25 year old, keep the girl in camp, at any and all costs.
Think of it this way; so far, this teen has cost you close to $100,000 in clothing and tuition. You’re gonna risk that over a few hundred dollars in earnings? Or a few thousand in camp savings?
Not worth the risk in my book. I pay dearly to protect my kids over the summer, and would only advise the same to another parent.February 7, 2011 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm #737560
I don’t think teens need supervision.February 7, 2011 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #737561SJSinNYCMember
What do they need popa? A cage?February 7, 2011 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #737562

I think parents are more likely to over-supervise than to under-supervise. So I would say the parents need the cage.February 7, 2011 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #737563
I agree with popa.

So here we go. the teens are starting a fight here…
I think the cage should lock the out from the coffee room too.February 7, 2011 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #737565
I agree with popas second statement not the first one every teen needs some supervision.

I agree with popa.
What does Momma say?February 8, 2011 12:38 am at 12:38 am #737569bptParticipant
Uh, Itche and Poppa, are you by chance parents of teen girls? Or are you closer to the age where you’re likley to date a teen girl?
Trust me, there is no such thing as being too careful over July / Aug when it comes to teens. Take it from a former teen, whose been there and done that, and the parent of several teens.
You can never be too careful, especially when it comes to bungalow life.February 8, 2011 12:44 am at 12:44 am #737570yossi z.Member
Moma is actually watching the teen while popa is espousing what should be done =D
