26 reasons your child should never go to summer camp in New Hampshire 

1. Many people believe that NH is some kind of outdoor paradise.

3. New Hampshire really is the opposite of pretty.

4. Besides, no child would ever enjoy spending 5 hours on a bus, especially on their way to a kid paradise.

5. It’s also way too far from New York to be enjoyable.

6. The entire state lacks any kind of allure.

7. I mean, it’s far too remote a place to go to summer camp.

8. It must be really boring there at night.

15. Both big and small.

18. I’ve heard that the water is so cold that no one likes to swim there.

19. All the water there is murky and dirty.

20. All the kids I know go to Camp in other states. Something must be wrong with NH.

21. Yup. Definitely not a great place to spend a summer.

22. There's nothing but rocks up there in New Hampshire.

25. They just can’t thrive when their parents are more than an hours drive away.

26. I’d feel so much better if every kid in my neighborhood was there (who wants to make new friends with kids from around the world?)
