Types of camps in cottage country

Many cottage camps are traditional, meaning they offer a wide variety of activities, from hiking to arts and crafts. But in cottage country and rural areas, an especially big focus is water sports. Many camps in these locations offer swimming, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and other water sports.

Most cottage and vacation camps have flexible programming, with plenty of full- and part-time options. For instance, they offer anywhere from five- to one-day a week programs. Many also offer daily programs ranging from a full day to an hour long, and everything in between. They may also have evening, March break, or even winter programs during the school year.

Benefits of cottage country camps

Cottage country camps are the perfect solution for many families. They can allow your child to take part in fun and challenging activities, make friends, and pursue interests and talents. And they manage to do all this while you sit back and have fun in the sun.

These camps are a great option for both cottagers, as well as families on vacation in rural areas. Their flexible schedules, stimulating programs, and reasonable prices make them the ideal fit for families who like to spend much or part of their summer near trees, forests, and lakes.
