Check out this link....almost realtime photos of Summer Camp

Recommended Posts

My son went to a (non-BSA) camp where they did this. On the one hand, it was kind of fun to see what he'd been doing that day. Plus there was less need (on his part) to remember to take photos - the camp was already doing that. On the other hand, I fear it promotes that sort of helicopter parenting behavior that we all seem to agree is counter productive. Even when kids are away at camp, parents are "checking up" on them. I know some people who use this more as a form of surveillance, than as a nice way to get a photo. Are SMs and camp directors going to start getting phone calls from worried parents if Johnny is wearing the same T shirt two days in a row, or if he's not grinning from ear to ear in every photo? It is a cool use of technology though.
