Needless to say, I still run into kids that attended summer camp and they are everything from doctors to ministers to factory workers.
I didn't mean that I think this is the right thing to do. I'm just saying that there are those types of parents in the world. We'd be foolish to think otherwise. All that being said, children whose parents allowed them to partake in activities over the years that in some way allowed them to make friends whether it be camp, sports, dance, etc., are better equipped to dealing with recruitment. (Which I think is the point of what's being said.)
Actually, amIblue? is a troublemaker. Go pick on her. --AZTheta
