How to send your kid to summer camp in North Korea
NK News Pro ^ | June 6, 2013 | Justin Rohrlick

While some kids are being sent away to summer camps in New England right now, others are on their way to the Songdowon International Children’s Camp in Wonsan, North Korea.

....

Far from just a getaway for North Korean children, thousands of young people from countries including China, Russia, Nigeria, Mongolia, Mexico, Syria (where North Korean military officers have reportedly begun advising Assad’s forces), Tanzania, and Thailand have attended the Songdowon camp since it opened in 1960, which expanded to accommodate 1,200 guests in 1993 “under the special care of President Kim Il Sung and the leader Kim Jong Il.”

If your child has ADD send them there. They have special camps to help them concentrate.

Don't forget the "debarking tool", in case the kid wants to eat:

Since I assume the kids in the camp actually get food North Korea might be a nice vacation from Syria, Nigeria or Mexico.
