Can you list some of the most popular amateur summer wrestling camps?

Well if you are referring to Professional Wrestling Camps, you might want to look into the Development League fo the WWE. I trained there and worked many house shows and work for PWA and Ted DiBiase now. Its called Ohio Valley Wrestling. 500 dollars a month can guarantee you 5 weeks of training with Amateur trainer Mike Mondo once you pass his short instructional class and sessions you will move on to Lance Storm and Bill DeMott. Then you will do Dark Matches and House Shows ( At High Schools ). It is a really great way to become a successful wrestler...Once you get half-way decent... You might get signed to a Developmental Deal.

Summer Camp

Muskoka Woods history?

I remember attending a youth camp in the Muskoka region for two summers, in the early 1970s. The camp was called Keswick Youth Camp. After looking at a map of the present day Muskoka Woods Sports Camp on Lake Rosseau, Ontario, I'm convinced that Muskoka Woods was contructed on the former grounds of Keswick Youth Camp after it closed in the late 1970s.

How would you help your son if he wants to dress up like a girl for the summer just to see what it's like?

Below are OPINIONS from the WikiAnswers Community.AnswerYou know deep inside this is not normal behavior for your son and most young men don't go around dressing up like a girl. It's time to sit down with your son and ask him straight out if he feels he is gay. He may not know what he is at this point and there is no shame in that. He may simply be a "cross dresser" which means he likes to wear women's clothing. I just saw a program on cross dressers and the men led perfectly normal lives ... were married, had children, went to work and once he was home, the kids were in bed, he dressed up in women's clothing. Some of the wives accepted it and lived with it and others couldn't cope with it.

Whatever happens, be blessed he's alive and healthy and if gay, support him all you can, and if he wants to dress up in women's clothing in private then accept that, but it's highly dangerous for him to dress up like a woman for the summer. His peers could be very cruel and harmful to him. I don't think your son realizes this.

Try talking your son into seeing a psychologist to straighten out his thoughts (not straighten out who he is inside!)

AnswerStart small. Dress up at home, maybe go shopping dressed up like a girl. Maybe a weekend trip full time as a girl. And sure, why not spend a summer as a girl while he can still pass for one. Get lots of pictures.

Your approach and handling as appropriate would/should vary depending on how old your son is. However, as a lifelong transvestite I am quite certain that no matter what his age, if he has asked to dress as a girl all summer, he already knows very well "what it is like" and he likes it very, very, verrrryyy much! I would also guess from his request that he is at least 13 years old. If so, he is old enough to already know what he wants and he is probably wondering whether he is a transvestite or a transexual. He could not pick a better age to get the answer to that question. In my opinion, here is the bottom line: Eventually he will indulge in crossdressing somehow, someplace, sometime and the sooner the better by his deepest desires. If your son was going to drink alcohol and smoke pot no matter what, would you not prefer that he do so at home under your watchful eye, rather than someplace outside the house with people you do not know and may never meet? Consider yourself facing that question because that could be your and his reality. You have two options: 1) the WRONG one: disown him, or 2) the no-brainer RIGHT one: embrace him and his crossdressing desires with all your love and support. If the social wisdom and maturity level of our society had been what it is today when I was his age, and my mother had been able to know about and embrace my crossdressing desires, I would have stayed out of a heck of a lot of trouble, felt good about myself growing up, probably would have gotten straight A's all through school and been the picture of absolute success, happiness and wealth from then on.

There are two broad classes of boys who crossdress. One are simply crossdressers (which has replaced the older term, transvestite) and the other are transsexuals. Crossdressers enjoy experimenting with wearing the clothes of the opposite gender. This can start about age 4 or 5 but can arise at any time. Usually, crossdressers come from families where the mother has a stronger relationship with the son than he has with his father and where women are seen as the dominant gender. Sometimes, the son gets the impression that the mother wanted a girl instead and there are instances in which a boy may be crossdressed by such mothers at an early age. By contrast, transsexuals feel they have been born into the wrong body. Research indicates that this "gender identity" is formed in the child's brain before birth and that the child has what is known as Gender Identity Disorder (GID). This is a lifelong disorder and if not treated, sometimes leads to suicide if the child's depression is severe. A mental health professional, preferably as psychiatrist, can diagnose GID, and there are established procedures for dealing with this disorder.

AnswerWhy not let him dress like a girl for summer if he wants to experience it? Though if he is 12 or older I think he already knows why he wants to do this and feels like a girl anyway. AnswerThis is wrong, boys are boys they should not dress in girls clothing. If my son asked me if he could do this, I would say no and we would have a very serious discussion on how wrong it is if he is younger than 16. AnswerGive him some time to think about it. If he still wants to then let him try for one day. You should let him borrow your clothes the first day, and if he tries it and still wishes to dress as a woman, you could then by him his own clothes. Like the first answer stated, you need to be careful.

Where can you find a great tennis camp?

Sports camps in the summer for kids have become very popular. There are several tennis camps available. First check with any colleges and universities in your state to see if they offer tennis camps over the summer. Typically your child spends a week at the camp and is housed in the college's dormitories. These camps are generally affordable and provide great instruction and experience for your child. You can also go to a more intense (and more expensive) camp such as Nick Bolletieri's Tennis Academy in Florida. Nick Bolletieri has coached several well known professional players such as Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova. Your child stays in lodgings at the Academy campus and has rigors physical, tennis, and mental training. This type of tennis camp is geared for serious tennis players that are highly competitive. Consult with your local tennis pro and/or check out Tennis magazine for further tennis camp information.

Why attend Culver summer camp?

I am an alumnus of the camp and of the boarding school. During college, I worked as a counselor and now I work there full time .

What sets Culver apart from a traditional summer camp is the leadership framework. Everything at camp revolves around it. Secondly, having the camp connected to the boarding school allows for so many more opportunities than an independent camp. If you haven't seen the campus, you need to schedule a visit or watch the videos on the website ( Viewing the campus says it all - a great program backed by thousands of alumni who support the school and camp on an annual basis.

Why should you spiral a football?

Just like a frisbee, if you dont have the spin action, you just lob it. It creates an airfoil as it spins and just like rifleing of a bullet, it makes the football more aerodynamic and it travels farther, straighter.

What is the oldest camp in the US?

Camp Welch was founded in 1882 in Massachusetts.

The oldest camp (continuously operated, private) in the USA is Camp Highlands for Boys in Sayner, Wisconsin. Founded in 1904 by a group of parents from the University of Chicago Laboratory School who wanted their city-raised boys to have a wilderness and work experience, Camp was first managed and then owned by Harry O'Gillet...the Headmaster from the "Lab School". Camp Highlands was not the first camp in the US... there were a small number of others, but they have since ceased operations. Camp Highlands derives its name from the fact that it is located in the "Highlands of Wisconsin," which is an area of land and lakes about 30 miles square in Vilas County. The camp occupies two peninsulas at the Northeast end of Plum Lake, and sits surrounded by the Northern Highlands State Forest. The primary architect of Camp Highlands for Boys was Doctor William J. Monilaw. "Doc" bought the camp in 1914 after having been a counselor there since 1911. "Doc" was the school doctor and athletic trainer for the "Lab" school. Doc followed through with the original concept of providing a wilderness and physical work experience for the campers but along with that he stressed character building. After 45 years of building and directing, at the age of 85, Doc sold camp to: Norvil and Cleo Beeman, Anthony and Lucille (Mickey) Anthony, Unk and Alice Nelson, Orville (Snow) and Miriam Nothdurft, Ralph Magor and Bob Mannschott...a group of counselors hoping to keep camp going. When Norvil, Tony, Unk, Ralph and Bob passed away, Lucille Anthony and the Nothdurfts were joined by Mike and Sharon Bachmann. Mike Bachmann started as a camper in 1950 and has been continuously since. The staff member with the greatest number of summers is Mike's spouse Sharon, who has attended continously (originally as the daughter of parents Snow and Mim Northdurft) since 1944. The two met at camp. Mike Bachmann has directed Camp Highlands for Boys since 1963. He is joined by his son Andy, who took the title of Co-Director in 2007, and has attended since 1974. Sharon Bachmann manages the camp kitchens and Highlands Lodge (an area of camp for guests). Notable alumni include Heisman Trophy winners' Jay Berwanger and Nile Kinnick, American Advisor and Ambassador George Kennan, Senator William Proxmire, and Managing Partner of Edward Jones, John Bachmann (brother of Mike).
