Family Camps for Your Next Vacation {Sponsored Guest Post}


Thinking of doing something different for your summer vacation this year? Rather than the usual beach vacation, consider taking your family to a summer camp for a fun and active trip. From a camp that teaches families about science to one that specializes in the French language, family camps across the United States can provide your family with a unique and fun experience. Here are a few different family camps that will cater to everyone’s interests.

If your family wants to…

Learn a new language

  • Canoe Island French Camp in Canoe Island, Washington will teach your family all things French. Language classes, French activities (like baking baguettes) and cuisine are all part of this camp.
  • Concordia Language Villages in Moorhead, Minnesota has nine cultural villages for guests to experience. You could learn Chinese, Spanish, French or even Finnish at this ethnically rich family camp.

Learn about science.

  • Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama will give your family an unforgettable vacation. Learn how to build and launch a single engine rocket, experience what it’s like to walk with no gravity and undergo a shuttle mission simulation.
  • Jean-Michel Cousteau Family Camp in Two Harbors, California will teach your family all about marine biology. Snorkel trips and sailing are only two of the many activities for campers.

 Be creative.

  • Idyllwild Arts Family Camp in Idyllwild, California is a great way for family members to tap into their artistic sides. Art classes on hot clay, Navajo weaving and making mosaics have been offered in the past.

Go back in time.

  • Emandal Family Camp in Willits, California will let your family experience farm life from the olden days. Visitors can partake in farm activities like milking cows or gathering eggs, but these chores are optional. Swimming holes, hiking trails and sand volleyball are also available to keep campers busy.
  • Rockywold-Deephaven Camps in Holderness, New Hampshire is a traditional camp; there are no televisions, phones or air conditioners in the lodging – but Wi-Fi is available for those who can’t go without it. Canoeing, fishing, swimming and tennis are only a few of the many activities offered.

Enjoy unique activities and games.

  • Summer Family Adventure Program at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia has a wide variety of activities to enjoy. The summer program includes everything from sandcastle competitions to trapeze lessons.
  • The Tyler Place Family Resort in Highgate Springs, Vermont will keep family members of all ages entertained. Parents can enjoy the resort’s spa services while the kids learn waterskiing or attend a movie night.

Planning a vacation to a summer family camp is a great way to enjoy great weather and bond with your family. Whether your family decides to spend the trip learning French or simply enjoying nature, make sure your car is up for the drive. Have a maintenance check-up, and make sure you are protected with auto insurance. Check out car insurance quotes online to get the best rate before you pack up the car.
