It does exist, apparently.

Making lanyards, roasting marshmallows and taking swim lessons are all standard fare at summer camp, but what about a post-apocalyptic death match where campers hunt each other to their doom? That’s just what participants are doing at one Florida summer camp. Inspired by the wildly-popular The Hunger Games book-turned-movie trilogy, the Country Day School in Largo, Florida, established a Hunger Games summer camp with a twist sure to reassure parents: There’s no actual killing.


Sounds like fun or no way?

Hmmm.  I'm torn.  I think my boys would love it (though I'm thinking more along the lines of a Nerf war!), but it is just too out there for me to feel comfortable.  The whole premise and thinking about my kids learning how to hunt down one another is just unsettling.
