—from the Camp Akita Program Team
We have heard that scientist did a study once and concluded that people
who laugh more have happier lives than those who laugh less. We also
know that, at Camp Akita, we make it a daily priority to laugh and make
others laugh. Based on this scientific study, which probably cost a
great deal of time and money, and using the transitive property, it is
our conclusion that if you want your children to be happy you must send
them to Camp Akita.
Hi, we are the Program Team at Camp Akita.
It is our job to make our campers laugh and we take our jobs very
seriously. We've been planning jokes, skits, and other hilarious
material to make this summer our funniest one yet.
Laughter is the universal language. Want to make a great new friend?
Laugh with a stranger. Want to strengthen an existing friendship?
Laugh together. Laughter bonds us like nothing else. If you tell us you've
never sat with a friend and laughed about a funny experience you shared,
then we will call you a liar. It is ingrained in our human nature. At Akita, a
camper can share a joke with an entire camp full of people — a
shared experience that friendships can be built upon and strengthened.
It's hard to find good humor these days
(although people in every time period have probably said
that). We take great pride at Camp Akita in specializing in good old
fashioned, clean humor; it's one of the most important lessons
we teach at camp. To be funny, you don't have to tear someone
else down — and we don't. To be funny, you don't have to point out differences in
gender, race, religious views, body types, or anything else that makes
people different — and we don't. To be funny, you don't have to use bad language or talk
about taboo subjects — and we don't. We go to the core of humor
to laugh like kids again. And we don't just use fart jokes, although
they usually are money for a good laugh. Humor can be witty, smart, and
cutting edge without being harmful.
In conclusion, send your child to Camp Akita. It's a great way to make
them happy, because we promise they will laugh all week long and we will be
laughing right there with them.
