If you're sending your kid to a co-ed camp, expect her to come back with a new understanding and appreciation of the opposite sex -- dare we say even a bit of hands-on experience?

Male-female boundaries aren't exactly enforced in many of these camps, especially with teenage campers, who aren't above sneaking off into the woods or setting up late-night rendezvous.
