I want to go to a summer camp the summer of '07 more than anything! The only problem is that my parents won't let me go. How can I convince my parent so to let me go to summer camp? I've even offered to pay for it myself!

Tell them that you want to meet a lot of new people and have fun and not just sit around the whole summer. But, if they say no, don't keep bugging them. Parents sometimes change their minds if they see that kids really want to go, so don't keep nagging them, the answer will still be no if you keep doing that.

Also, really explain and express to them how it would make you a better person, and how great it would be to meet new friends and experience new and safe adventures. If they know how excited you are and how beneficial it could be, they'll be in on it to. I hope I helped and I hope everything works out for you. Send me a message (in my inbox) if you need any more help. [ partygurl24's advice column | Ask partygurl24 A Question ]
Ask them with a serious face, "why do you not want me to go to summer camp?", if you ask them in a mature manner, you will get an honest response. And don't argue back your point immediately either. Just accept everything they say.
Then just work on the reason that they do not want you to go, work on it silently, and don't draw any attention to yourself.
If you like, after you find out the reason, you can re-ask the question to us. include all the other info. that you will uncover or are directly relevant to this scenario. from there, we can give you further advice on what to do.
But the important thing is to remain calm, and act mature.
