For the past 3 years we have travelled to Washington ME to spend a week at family camp at Medomak. We keep going back because our kids love it and it's an incredibly relaxing and stress-free vacation for parents. All meals and activities are included in the price, which is very reasonable when compared with similar vacations. Families stay in their own cabin with a bathroom and shower. Days are spent trying out traditional camp activities - archery, arts & crafts, sports, boating - and there is a campfire and whole camp activity each night (including things like campwide kickball, star gazing, and local beer and cheese tasting.) Kids have plenty of opportunities to meet other kids and have fun separate from parents. Adults can choose which activities to participate in and if reading a book under a tree is your preference, that's fine. Meals are prepared by gourmet chefs and there's always something to please kids and adults. No bug juice and hot dogs here! The lake is beautiful and stocked with kayaks, canoes, sailboats and even a rowing scull. There's also an "out of camp" day midweek that allows you time to explore the Maine coast. A great opportunity to "unplug" and enjoy some of the simple things that you might have done at summer camp as a kid - but this time with your whole family.
