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.

Travel & Spas in South Carolina

If you're already mourning the approaching end of summer's days, consider setting your sights on perhaps a less traditional - or seemingly unglamourous - vacation spot where the air will be warmer a bit longer: South Carolina.  The Wentworth Mansion in Charleston has complimentary bedtime casks of sherry, port and brandy and a spa, not to mention close proiximity to the just-completed longest cable-stay bridge in the U.S.  For golf, as well as a spa and kid-friendly offerings, try the eight-month old The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, below, outside of Savannah and on a 20,000-acre nature preserve.
