Smartphones May Ruin Kids’ Camp Experience, Researchers Say.

HealthDay (5/19) reported that taking a smartphone to camp may ruin children’s “camp experience,” research indicated. After surveying some “620 camp directors, nurses and other staff members at 331 camps in the United States and Canada,” researchers found that “campers were so fixated on their phones that they didn’t fully engage in camp activities.” The findings were recently presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting.
