A few weeks ago, my oldest daughter asked when we could go on another vacation. The sad part is that the “vacation” she was referring to was actually what New Orleanians call a Hurrication (you may know it as an evacuation). The silver lining is that I guess my husband and I did a great job staying calm because she had no idea that our little trip was anything but a fun family road trip!
Fortunately, I could tell her that we are actually going on a real vacation…a Summer Family Adventure to be exact! In just a few days, we will be joining four other bloggers and their families at the Southern Pine Cottages at Callaway Gardens in Georgia! About Callaway’s Summer Family Adventure:
“Summer Family Adventure is a 7-day summer vacation reconnecting your family in a natural, wholesome, authentic environment. It is the joy of escaping life’s daily stresses, letting children be children while adults rejuvenate their spirit! Our younger guests, age 3-18, are whisked away daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to participate in our children’s center and day camp activities, while our adults can spend the day as active or leisurely as they please. Sample activities available for children and adults include. (Activities vary based on age groups)
- Circus skills including acrobats, juggling and more
- Teen Activities
- Tennis clinics
- Water skiing & tubing
- Camp crafts
- Golf instruction
- Nature and wildlife adventures
- Beach fun
- Kayaking or canoeing
- Jewelry & pottery
- Astronomy and Ecology
- Evenings reunite families to enjoy an All American Cookout, beach party, marshmallow roasts, fun camp competitions, hanging out at the teen center, astronomy, bingo, bike rides, hiking and more!
The seven day adventure includes neighborhood style accommodations in a private two-bedroom Cottage or Villa with living and dining areas, equipped kitchen, fireplace and screened porch, Summer Family Adventure camp and evening activities. Unlimited admission to Callaway Gardens including the Virginia Hand Callaway Discovery Center, Day Butterfly Center, Sibley Horticultural Center, Mr. Cason’s Vegetable Garden, Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl, Overlook Garden, Discovery Bike Trail, Pioneer Log Cabin, Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel, nature trails and daily programs
Beach activities at Robin Lake Beach–swimming, paddleboats, miniature golf, table tennis and Florida State University Flying High Circus performances.”
Seriously, does it get any better than that?!? The Summer Family Adventure packages are available June 4th through August 13th. We could not be more thrilled to share our experiences with the readers here at Experimental Mommy. Make sure you come back in the next few days to see what we are up to (there may be a zip-line or possible circus performance involved)! But, while you wait, check out some of the awesome activities available at Callaway Gardens Summer Family Adventure!
