Why Didn't I Think of This?

The Summit shopping center, in Louisville, Kentucky, runs a shopping day camp for girls ages 6 to 8 and 9 to 12. "Each session focuses on three stores within the shopping center, where campers learn how to put together and accessorize outfits. But they also visit stores that teach lessons in organization (Office Depot), how to find information (Barnes & Noble) and the importance of thank-you notes (Hallmark)."

Says the program's founder, "not everyone can be a cheerleader or a football player." What that has to do with anything, I'm not sure. But I'm pretty sure that this "Shopping Day Camp" was developed by a housewife that had nothing better to do with her time than take her kid to the mall and call it camp. Finally, a job that I can be good at!
