Rating: (1-5)

Strong Points: I think the Camp Game is very amusing with bright colors, the students will enjoy the music that is played during the five different games to choose from.  The student will want to do really well  in each setting which will help them at the end of the game.  The activities they do in this game reflects their knowledge of the objectives should be met.
Weak Points:  I found it to be speelled out what the intent of each  setting which inforces a particular skill which allows for easy masetry.  But I think if there was a larger variety of places to go to then it would spark my interest even more.
