Summer Family Camp Defined

There are different kinds of summer family camps

  • Christian, organized, and stationary (religious focus is on personal growth and family bonding)
  • Christian church camp that is organized, and missionary (outreach to communities)
  • non-religious, organized
  • family camps of other religious affiliations

No matter the kind of camp you go to, you'll find something for the parents, something for the kids, and something for the family to enjoy. How much time is spent as a family unit varies but, since the idea is for family bonding, there is a fair amount of time spent together.

What do family camps include?

  • meals
  • lodgings
  • outdoor activities (anywhere from swim lessons to shooting to archery to bicycling or hiking)

What does family camp cost?

  • The run about $500-2000 for the entire family (of four), depending up on the length of time and the location you are in within the USA. (I am not familiar with the cost in other countries.)

Where does the family sleep?

  • Most family camps are now in cabins together. However, some traditional camps still use tents.
