Flourishing Things: Family Summer Camp

Summer camp is one of the best ways for kids to spend their summers. Canoeing, playing soccer, swimming, spending time outdoors with friends, and roasting marshmallows around a campfire are activities that are often associated with summer camps and are enjoyed by people of all ages. Summer camps aren’t just for kids! Many places offer a traditional summer camp experience that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Lodging, food, and activities are provided at family summer camps, allowing families to spend some quality time together without any distractions. Additionally, family summer camps are convenient because they let you get the camping experience without the hassle of setting up accommodations and recreational activities yourself.

While some family summer camps offer family activities all day and evening, others offer kids-only programs during the day so that parents can relax or take part in activities on their own. Additionally, some camps allow you to create your own schedule so that you can choose to spend the amount of time together that suits your family best! These summer camps give families a great opportunity to explore and develop an affinity for the outdoors. Spending time in nature is a great way to de-stress, improve your mental wellbeing, and learn something new!

The YMCA offers various family summer camps throughout North America, including Camp Pine Crest and Camp Wanakita in Toronto and Bear Valley Camp in California. These summer camps allow families to partake in a host of exciting activities and scheduled special events. Another example of a well-loved family summer camp is Callaway Garden’s Family Summer Adventure. This vacation experience is listed as one of the top ten family vacations in the United States and includes activities that are run by the Florida State University Flying High Circus. Enjoy nature with your family this summer by checking out family summer camp opportunities near you, even if it is a physically distanced version due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
