Camper returns home to technology-aided surprise

A camper returning home from camp at Camp Manitou in Ontario is in for a big surprise when he gets home from camp in a video demonstrating one way summer camps can tap into the coming virtual reality revolution.

Here’s the set-up for the video from the camp’s blog:

“Anyone lucky enough to have attended summer camp at some point in their lives is also aware of the worst part about it: that eventually, it has to end. The day you get back in the city is easily the saddest day of the year. You can probably recall one of those awful first nights home after camp, all tear-stained diary entries and late night phone calls, as it dawned on you that you’d have to wait an entire year before you could experience the magic of summer camp again. Right? It’s practically a rite of passage.

But for one lucky Manitou kid, his first day back from camp will never be the same.”
