Give the Gift of Camp This Holiday Season

Give the Gift of Camp This Holiday Season

- in Fun, Grandparenting, Latest News, Outdoors

Every holiday season, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are faced with the difficult decision of what to gift to children. This year, as part of your holiday gift list, consider the gift of camp.

Camp provides children with a healthy environment of organized activities, free play, friendship building, problem-solving, and more. It offers experiential, energetic, and interactive activities that are a healthy respite from too much screen time.

Find the right camp by using the American Camp Association’s Find a Camp tool. You can search by activity, cost, location, and more. Find a Camp connects over 1.2 million families with camp each year.

As the holiday season approaches, offer the children in your life a gift that will provide them the opportunity for experiential learning and growth — plus memories, skills, and experiences they will cherish their entire lives.

Click here to print a free “gift of camp” certificate. Tuck it in a new backpack, roll it in a new sleeping bag, wrap it around a new flashlight — or put it in a traditional gift box complete with colorful paper and a bow. No matter how it’s delivered, imagine the delight when the gift is opened, and the child discovers that camp is in his or her future.
