Looking for something fun to do with the whole family this summer? Why not check out a Bible-based family camp. This is a great option because they are relatively inexpensive with meals and room included, tons of activities for the kids, and opportunities for Mom and Dad to rest. It allows for quality family time away from home, in a safe and fun environment.
