Did you to summer camp as a kid and love it? Want to send your children to one so they can have the same exciting adventures? Summer camp is a great thing for most kids. They meet new people, and experience healthy fun filled outdoor activities. North Carolina is a great state to visit in the summer. Most of our summers especially in the Mountains are mild.
