Camp has always been a very special place for kids, but now more than ever, camp is playing a significant role in the growth of children. If you are a parent you know first hand just how addicted kids have become to technology and their phones…. Put away the phone, (not suggesting for 7 weeks) and just try and unplug and see what benefits you reap. Here are seven ideas for parents to unplug this summer.

I’ve been following lots of different stores and websites that sell camp items in the hopes of finding some great visiting day swag for my son. Here’s the problem…1) He’s a boy and doesn’t care about all the (awesome) camp jewelry etc (but would it be weird if I bought it for myself?!) 2) He’s not a candy kid…
Well, it’s only been 3 days since I put my son on the bus for his first summer at camp but it feels like an eternity! I kept reminding myself that it’s healthy for our kids to be anxious and nervous sometimes and to be pushed out of their comfort zone, from this they learn.
One of the many staples at camp is having a decked out friendship bracelet stack. Our newest Camper of the Week, Carly Marks, always had the chicest bracelet stack and now has used her friendship bracelet making skills for her amazing jewelry business CARLYMARLY DESIGNS!
This past week, we got to experience the magic that is Camp POWER in the beautiful Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania! We came away with the most amazing memories, the most meaningful friendships, and even the coolest dance moves. We were honored to be a part of this awesome week and bring the gift of camp and the great outdoors to so many deserving kids. Read more to get the full recap.
The time has finally come! All summer we have been looking forward to this one week, and we have been working hard to make it the best one yet. That’s right, CAMP POWER has begun! During the last week of August, after camp has ended, we will be heading back to camp to join in the magic and fun that is Camp Power. Stay tuned with us to get the latest updates, pictures, and stories that we have from this amazing experience. We will be playing, running, laughing, learning, and teaching all week… and we just can’t wait! We are so excited that we are able to be a part of this amazing journey and give the gift of summer to so many deserving children, and we hope you join us in spreading the camp love!
