Sleepaway Camp So Young?

ETA: oops, one girl is 7 3/4, not 8 yet... I have an opinion which will be clear but I'm honestly curious if I'm wrong... A few people I know are sending their kids to sleepaway camp starting at ages 8 and 9. One girl is 9 and going to sleepaway camp for seven weeks. Her mom stays home, she's an only child and they have plenty of money.

College Savings 101

As my girls get older, I can't help but worry about college expenses for 2 girls. What are your plans for college financing? How many kids do you have? Are you putting $ away monthly? Can I be so bold to ask how much? Taboo topic in person. Anyone seen the documentary, Ivory Tower? Excellent movie on the business on college admissions, student loans and the personal and financial cost of a 4 year degree.
