Danny is fifteen and he has saved up all his pocket money for six months and Dad’s lent him £20. He’s going to spend it on DVDs and computer games. His mum says that he always wastes his money.

The writer hasn’t been to a holiday camp yet, but a lot of people say that you can make new friends there. You can also join in a lot of different activities and pick up new skills, so you never get bored.
However, there are some disadvantages. Some of the camps are very expensive and it can be difficult to afford them. Another disadvantage is that the camps are often far away and some young people might miss their families.
