That's right! Think beyond Disney or your traditional kids summer camps. Instead think you could be teeing it up overlooking the ocean in the morning, later participating in a cooking class in the afternoon while your kids are engaged in nature hikes, crafting bird feeders, and learning to kayak AND ending with the evening with family bingo! Here's a few of our favorites:
The Sanctuary @ Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Kiawah Island, South Carolina

The Sagamore Resort, Bolton Landing, NY
