Carson’s Camp on Carson Lake at Sauble Beach has that Dirty Dancing Resort vibe. The place has a full-time recreation director whose job it is to organize activities for kids and families. The whole summer is organized into weekly themes. It’s just like Kellerman’s Resort in Dirty Dancing where Baby met Penny and Johnny and there was dancing and friendship and teen sex and….
Don’t get me started.
I could write a whole Master’s thesis on Dirty Dancing. Actually, I did. Don’t believe me? Here’s where you can get it and read all about it yourself. Ohio State, Women’s Studies 1996 baby. Because of my thesis “Nobobdy Puts Baby in a Corner: Hybridity and Female Desire in Dirty Dancing,” I’m an expert in all-inclusive North American family oriented resorts, musicals and feminism.
Just like the good life at Kellerman’s, at Carson’s Camp there’s an indoor pool, an outdoor pool and BINGO, horseshoe pits, 3 playgrounds, golf practice nets, shuffleboard courts, chess & checkers courts, a beach volleyball court, basketball court and billiards.
You may even find a hidden-away shack where scantily clan teens illicitly bump and grind until the wee hours.
Oh, you’ll have the time of your life. But be sure to use birth control….remember what happened to Penny?
Next week at Carson’s Lake is themed “Halloween week” (yes, for real.) Here’s a great Halloween costume and a great dance number featuring one guy as both Baby and Johnny. I’m dying over here.
