When our 8 year old son told us he wanted to go to sleep away camp, we all decided to go with him! After all, why should kids have all the fun? We loved the fact that there were activities for all ages -including our 8 year olds triplets and 3 year old daughter and that mom and dad would get some time without the kids. We also liked the idea of spending afternoons together as a family - sailing, kayaking, rowing, swimming or raspberry picking.
The evening activities included family games, sports and campfires plus an astronomy lesson from the editor of Sky and Telescope magazine who was fantastic with the adults and kids and even led the kids in an afternoon craft activity. The adult evening festivities were just as fun and included a local beer and cheese tasting and a presentation from Greg Mort, a local artist whose work has appeared in the White House.
We really enjoyed the change in scenery and would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking for a unique family vacation. We liked the the fact that the camp is relatively small and we were able to get to know the other families as well as the owners and staff.
