The campers hardly spend any time at Devil's Island - that's just the base for wilderness trips that last from five days for newbies to seven weeks for the most experienced campers. Boys and girls travel by canoe, towing their supplies, and they cook all meals from scratch over open fires, from pancakes and bacon in the morning to stews and chili at night, and even bake bread and doughnuts using reflector ovens.

Unforgettable summer camps

June 21, 2012

By Colleen Kane, CNBC.com -- The go-to mental image for summer camps is a group of kids and counselors toasting marshmallows around a campfire in the woods. The rustic, woodsy tradition depicted in "Meatballs" and "Salute Your Shorts" is still a part of many summer camps. But summer camp is no longer just about lakes and lanyards. If your kids are more about art than Color Wars, there's a place for them. From science to snowboarding to magic, there's a camp for almost any kid with an itch to explore a favorite topic. The American Camp Association - think "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" for camps - compiled this list of unusual programs where campers can learn about the deepest seas, the stars and everything in between. Many of these are so popular that they have wait lists long before the season begins. Unforgettable Summer Camps originally appeared on CNBC.com
