We took our son to the Camp Nominingue family camp when he was six. He loved it! He's 24 now and our daughter is 20.
You all sleep in the same 10-foot by 15-foot tent, and there's no electricity in the tent, no video games, no cell phones. The best thing, though, was that I didn't have to cook-you have meals at the dining hall and the rest of the time you spend with your family, which is great. It's really a traditional camp, with canoe tripping and hiking and all of that.
The week is so great. You spend a lot of time bonding with your family and also with the community, because you're sharing everything. We always do an overnight canoe trip, but the kids also go on trips with the counsellors, hiking through the spruce bogs or playing these great running games of tag. (Susan's family has been going to Camp Nominingue for three generations.)
