United States & CanadaSummer Camps for the Family

HCWT 08.31.2012 15:51 Not available 0

 

Family Summer Camp Adventures

Camps, Camps, and more Camps...
...summer fun for the whole family

 
If you went to camp as a kid, then you know just how special this experience can be.  A chance to meet new friends, develop skills and interests in a variety of activities, and grow in many ways.              
    What if you could still enjoy these experiences? ...and with your kids? ...together as a family?  ...You can!   
Explore the cosmos to digging for dinosaur bones. Learn to sail or how to create Disney animation. It's all at summer camp.

Explore the cosmos to digging for dinosaur bones. Learn to sail or how to create Disney animation. It's all at summer camp.

    Family camp, like family travel can help develop mutual companionship and understanding between family members.  It can also create a foundation for positive, lifelong relationships.
    There are programs to fit any interest: the classic camp often located in scenic areas offers a variety of sports and activities; the sport/academic/art camp coaches tennis, instructs music/dance or teaches a foreign language. Challenges can be found at the adventure camp--rock climbing, sailing or camping the wilderness; a religious affiliated camp incorporates spiritual training; special needs are addressed at a camp for handicaps or illnesses; and, an international camp offers an experience in a foreign country.  
    You can choose a resident camp, spending nights in a tent, cabin, or dormitory.  Or, a day camp–after a full day of activities you return to your own lodging for the evening.
    Non-profit agencies, youth groups, or public agencies usually offer affordable camps. Independently-run camps are often more costly.
    Which camp is right for your family?  First, determine your reasons for participation.  Will your family like the programs and do they fit your interests?  What are your goals?  Is the philosophy of the camp what you’re looking for?  And is the size and location of the camp suitable?
    Once you've decided on your ideal family camp getaway, then research the internet and discuss with travel agents the best options available.

United States & CanadaFamily Fun at the State Fair

HCWT 07.22.2012 20:25 0 0

 
"Our State Fair is a Great State Fair."
   -- Rodgers And Hammerstein

It’s Blue Ribbon excitement at the Iowa State Fair – the nation’s biggest, oldest, and greatest! August 9-19, 2012, join more than a million exhibitors and visitors at the historic 400-acre fair grounds in Des Moines, Iowa. Thrill your way through countless midway rides and games, cheer to the tractor pulls and rodeos, and stomp your feet to the beat of live rock, country, and bluegrass music. Then pause for a stroll through the many exhibit halls with home, garden, cooking, food, art and craft, and agricultural and educational displays. The kids will love the livestock barns – getting up close to cows, calves, pigs, sheep, and chickens. Look for the 4-H blue ribbon winners. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll find oodles of food booths with your favorite treats for sale.

This is just one of many State Fairs celebrated across the country. All offering loads of entertainment!

Make it a family tradition and head off to a State Fair near you - many celebrated far into the fall season.

Check out these State Fairs near you...
