How to Read These Listings
Minimum stay is usually a week (six days and five or six nights); some camps offer weekend sessions.
Prices vary depending on the number and age of children. The rates we list are based on a family of four with two adults and two kids ages 7 and 13.
Unless noted, fees are for a weeklong stay and cover meals, activities, and the least expensive non-tent-camping accommodations.
Cabins are almost always single-family. "Dorm-style" rooms indidcate a shared bath down the hall; "hotel-style" means en suite bathrooms.
The dates we list tend to be for summer and fall; some camps, however, also organize special family programs throughout the year.
Not all camps provide linens and towels, so ask.
Camps accredited by the American Camp Association (acacamps.org) meet 26 health and safety standards and are usually handicapped-accessible.
Kidscamps.com is a good resource for additional listings of family camps in the U.S. and abroad.
