Camp’s entertainment based on reality shows
August 3, 2005
The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual, week-long Nevada summer camp entertained 55 campers along with staff July 24-30 at the Nevada State 4-H campgrounds in South Lake Tahoe.
The themed summer camp, “Camp Reality,” was a favorite among MDA campers. Everyday, campers played games inspired by television’s obsession with reality.
One day revisited the game show, “The Price Is Right.” Another day, campers participated in a competition dubbed “MDA Idol.” Seventeen-year-old Josh Hart won the competition after performing an original rap.
“Being crowned MDA Idol was great,” said Hart, a returning camper. “It was really cool for everyone to see me perform something that I wrote.”
Following the week’s events – including poker, swimming, arts and crafts and a pie-eating contest- campers and counselors barbecued prior to award presentations.
Each camper attended at a cost of $600, funded by charitable contributions.
