Do you want your kids to really love the gifts you give them? Consider giving them an experience like a week at camp, or give your entire family a week away at family camp. Researchers from the University of Toronto said, “If you want to give them something that will make them feel closer to you, give an experience.”[1]

Consider these benefits of a gift of camp:

  • It always fits. You don’t have to worry about it being returned because it isn’t the right size, color or style.
  • If you go together as a family, the shared experience will help you grow as a family.
  • Camp memories never expire. They’ll hold them forever and, for many campers, their experience at camp is life-defining.
