NORTH KOREA – Songdowon International Children’s Camp in Wonsan, North Korea is a summer camp for kids around the world.  Normally when you think about sending your kiddos off to camp you picture somewhere in the woods.

Well how about sending them to summer camp in North Korea?

The famously secretive country has a kid’s camp of all things, which opens its doors to more than 300 children from around the world.

Songdowon International Children’s Camp has everything from giant water slides, a private beach, video games, volleyball courts, air conditioned rooms, and other luxuries that are out of reach for most of its citizens.

The camp has been running for 30 years and recently had a major facelift, thanks to North Korea’s fearless leader, Kim Jong Un.

The eight day camp costs about 270 dollars per child from outside Korea.
