LuxNews: Fantasy Camps

Camp isn't only for kids.  In February, eighty adults paid $7,999 to get on stage with rock stars and be coatched in a "battle of the bands".  A trend that dates at least as far back as "Field of Dreams" has grown into a $1 billion industry, according to The Wall Street Journal, and goes far beyond sports.  Some camps focus on untradition fantasies, such as living out "Jaws"-like terror underwater and engaging in mock dogfights.  Others offer race car driving and flying or the chance to play basketball against Michael Jordan at his own camp or hockey with Wayne Gretsky.
