Nature Summer Camps

Kids today have more choices than ever when it comes to summer activities. Without driving too far, most kids have an array of sports, arts, and technology camps available to them.

But what about nature camps? A chance to just lose yourself in the wilderness (not literally!) and all it has to offer. Sure, there will be mosquitoes, but isn't that part of summer too?

One option close to me that sounds like a good bet is Islandwood on Bainbridge Island. The camp is set on 255 acres of forest and wetlands and comes complete with trails, treehouses, and a 190 foot suspension bridge! My kids aren't old enough for overnight camp yet, but I plan to check this out when they're ready (or is it me that needs to be ready to let go?). Islandwood also has some day-camp and family camp options worth looking into if you're local.

What about you? Any favorite camps, or other places, that you want your children to experience this summer?
