THE LOWDOWN: A well-run family-owned brother/sister camp. (Wayne for Girls is the sister camp, which is a 15 minute walk from the boys camp.) Although Wayne for Boys has the reputation of being very-sports-oriented, the director tells us that the athletic ability of the kids runs the gamut; the camp is not competitive, no try-outs for sports, but the kids that attend Camp Wayne for Boys definitely enjoy playing sports.
