It’s Not Too Late to Recreate Your Summer Camp Days” –

“A more resort-like experience, Tyler Place, on Lake Champlain’s northern shore, provides an excellent balance of family time and kid- and adult-only activities each day, including nightly opportunities for parents to relax over dinner together while happy offspring eat with new friends. When the kids aren’t with their counselors, families can grab bikes at the Bike Barn, join a guided canoe trip, or take a day trip to nearby Québec.”

The Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the U.S. That are Anything but Tacky” – PureWow

“One word: babysitters. This all-inclusive resort off  Lake Champlain takes family-friendly to the next level. While the hiking, crafts, sports, biking and more will keep your kids busy during the day, real, live humans will watch your children as you enjoy your nightly farm-to-table dinner (this is Vermont, after all). But best of all, it’s not just the great food you can enjoy—there are arts and crafts for adults, too. From papier-mâché and jewelry making to kiln pottery and woodworking, you can channel your inner kiddo while someone else watches yours.”

The difference between a vacation and a trip- I finally got a vacation!” – The Donaldson Law Firm

“We are a law firm that represents families.  We have a strong focus on helping clients implement estate plans that further their hopes, dreams and goals for their whole family.  But what about helping families be closer while our clients are living?  That’s not really my job as a lawyer.  But I deeply care about all of our clients.  So when I stumbled upon what I truly think is THE BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER this summer, I wanted to share it with the people I care about.”

Into the Woods: Family Camp in Vermont” –

“The next morning and evening, and for each of the next six days that followed, I hurried off at the first chance to join my new friends and counselors for another day of exciting activities.  It was freedom from the usual annoyance of having to ask my parents for permission or extra cash every time I wanted to try out a new sport or activity or hang out with friends at the Waterfront or Teen Lounge.  Some of my favorite activities during the week were banana boating, tubing, tennis, archery, the lake trampoline and slide, basketball, volleyball, kayaking, canoeing, and the mountain bike trip to the nearby quarry for cliff jumping – where I frantically leaped from over thirty feet into the cold water below.  It was both terrifying and exhilarating!”

Best family vacation ever? 10 ways this Vermont resort fits the bill” – AZ Central

“Looking at the brochures, I was transported back to my 1970s childhood in Illinois. Running through my neighborhood, riding bikes from house to house, playing Red Rover and Capture the Flag, fishing with my grandfather, roasting marshmallows and making s’mores at dusk in front of an open campfire.

Did such a simple time really still exist? And could I give my kids a taste of that long-ago freedom?

It turns out the answers are yes and yes.”
