Long gone are the days I went to summer camp, but I always enjoy a good story about camp counselors vs camp attendees.
In this case, OP was in an IT course in a Balkan country, and they got an offer to go to a summer sports camp. OP describes the adventure as ‘fun’ even though there were quite a few things that were a bit ‘off’ about the camp itself. Still, when you are young, you know how to ignore red flags and just have fun.
One of the bigger issues was the curfew… or rather, the lack of light during curfew. The counselors told the campers that they were not allowed to have lights on after 11, and so every night, like clockwork, the lights would turn off, leaving the campers in the dark. A curfew sounds reasonable enough, but the issue was that most activities that were organized by the camp would end after 11, meaning that the campers had to get ready for bed in the dark.
