Summer time. Those blissful 90 days between the school year full of sun and fun.
Unless you are a parent.
Then those 90 days can get VERY long.
So as a mom of four – I have been checking out things to do with the kids so we don’t go crazy or have to quit our jobs to entertain the lil’ darlins.
And I must say – I did have quite a bit of fun researching one place in particular. Camp Loughridge. Which is now my new favorite place.
Located on 200 acres west of Tulsa, this haven for kids is not only beautiful, but chock full of fun for the kids, guaranteed to wear them out on a daily basis. Camp Loughridge is a Christian based summer camp where kids ages 6-16 can enjoy all the outdoor activies they love in a safe environment.
And guess what? One of you lucky ducks will win a week for your kiddo to this fabulous place. All you have to do is leave me a comment. Thank you to Vince and crew at Camp Loughridge. They are truly some of the neatest people I have ever met. Baby J loves them too.
Did I mention they have a 50 foot swing? Ummm – yes. It is pretty freaking cool. And a little bit scary.
And a few blood curdling screams…
Yes – I am getting all fancy and swinging upside down.
And a ZIP LINE! I used to have one of these in my backyard. However, it was only five feet off the ground and not FIFTY. Yes, it is a little nerve racking to climb the pole. But Holy Cow, what a ride! I’m going to make Shane build us one in the back yard.
In addition to the thrilling rides, Camp Loughridge offers a million activities. Arts and crafts, canoeing (I used to teach this by the way…laughable I know), archery (my weapon loving son is SO excited about this one), dancing, hiking and swimming in their Olympic sized pool.
Plus the older kids (ages 11-13) get to spend a night at the camp (that equals date night parents!)…AND the 14-16 year olds get to go on a three day backpacking trip (hey, that equals a mini- vacay)!
And even better? You don’t have to pack a lunch for the kids. YAY! Camp Loughridge serves a hot and healthy meal every day for lunch (and snacks too!). It’s included in the price. And that’s not all! Also included is a super cool T-shirt, water bottle, backpack and camp group photo. I’m tellin you – I love this place so much I am trying to figure out a way for them to hire me. But I just blew my cover on my canoeing skills…
Parents – this camp fills up FAST. The first three sessions are almost sold out. BUT, the last sessions are still available and they even go through the first week in August, when most camps and activities stop. Sessions go June 6-August 5, Monday-Friday from 9-5. This is money well spent, fellow parents.
Remember to post a comment on my blog and win a FREE WEEK TO CAMP! That is a $234 value. Actually – the memories your kids create – priceless.
We will do the drawing on Friday, May 13.
And the Fernandez Fam will see you at Camp Loughridge! I’ll be on the zip line- not teaching your kids how to canoe. Promise.
