World News: North Korean Summer Camp

The recently reopened North Korean beachside summer camp has attendees from Russia, China, Vietnam, Tanzania, and Ireland. It offers comforts that are not provided for regular North Koreans, such as air-conditioned rooms and video games, a private beach, volleyball courts, and water slides. This camp had originally been opened in the 1960s to foster ties with other communist countries, but it was revamped this year to include input from Kim Jong Un. For $270, campers can spend eight days in North Korea swimming, boating, and learning traditional Korean dances or songs about Korean political leaders.
