Sophie, I agree with your post. There are enough resources and innovative thought to provide all of their needs and I understand different camps may have varying lengths of stay.
I'm definitely not saying suspend education in any camp. Putting myself in their shoes, I would need to feel some form of security first. Once they have a routine set, I'm assuming they would have the time to focus on their studies.
After reading a few other posts, I do like the idea of distance learning though- via Internet/webcam?
