Best Family Vacation Camps  – Why Should Kids Have All the Fun? Kingsley Pines Mon & Son Family camp is similar to a summer  camp for kids but for the whole family gets in on the fun. The lodging is basic, meals and many activities are included and the experience is easy on the family vacation budget.

Here's the scoop. The family camp concept is the perfect example of a high value, low cost family vacation experience. Ideal for creating family memories no two camp locations are the same but all guarantee family fun. Expect plenty of outdoor shared activities during the daytime, with sing-a-longs and campfires at night. Family camps sometimes dubbed "multigenerational camps", offer simple lodgings, with meals included. In many cases traditional kids’ summer camp locations designate "family camp" weeks. 

Family camp accommodations vary by location and include lodges, hotel rooms, cottages, cabins, and tents cabins with no electricity. Some provide private baths while others offer shared bathhouses. Just as varied as the sleeping spots the activities define the experience. From banana boat rides and sailing classes to performing arts and studio families can easily have fun together. 

Because family camps span the country we have assembled some of the best by region.
