Choosing the Best North Carolina Traditional Summer Camp

Does the program offer a variety of activities, or do they concentrate on just a few specialties? Does the camp encourage competition, and if so, at what level? Do campers choose their own schedule, or does the camp provide one for them? What is the average age of the staff? What is the camp's staff and camper annual return rate?
