Family Camps

Outdoor Travel

Family camps have always been popular and are becoming more so. Like a resort minus some of the amenities, family camps offer a wide range of activites and usually a dining hall where meals are eaten.

The camps are usually found in areas rich in beauty and are well-equiped for family fun. As most family camps provide meals and activities, planning and packing may be kept to a minimium, maximizing your vacation time. Family camps can be one of the most economical vacations and one of the most relaxing for everybody as there are many activities typically offered. Some families coordinate their vacation times to go to family camps with other family friends or relatives doubling the fun.

Many traditional children's summer camps are offering camping on designated weeks or weekends. Be sure to check. This type of vacatio offers a great opportunity to spend time togehter as a family with very few hassles to deal with all in a beautiful setting. The following is a partial list of family camps around the country. There are many, many others. If you would like to visit an area with no camp mentioned here, contact the state tourist board, they'll be able to help you.
