Camping sounds great until you spend hours packing, forget the tent pegs when you get to camp and you’re inevitably swarmed by mosquitos. Fortunately Great Wolf Lodge is offering a simpler way to get the camping experience this summer through their Summer CampIn Celebration. From crafts to a campfire ceremony, the lodge is bringing the great outdoors to you!

All 18 North American locations will be participating from May 27 through Sept. 6. Campers of all ages will be able to earn badges by participating in interactive games, fitness activities and arts and crafts projects. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to participate in campfire sing-alongs and enjoy s’mores by the lodges’ own “s’moreliers.” Keep an eye out for special character appearances from Wiley the Wolf, Oliver Raccoon, Sammy the Squirrel and others!


Great Wolf Lodge is proud to offer a fun, safe getaway for families looking to create lasting, heartwarming memories this summer and beyond,” said Kenny Funk, senior vice president of resort experiences for Great Wolf Resorts. “Our Summer CampIn celebration invites families to relive the time-honored tradition of summer camp with ease, allowing the opportunity to relax and spend quality time together enjoying all the fun summer events at our resort.”

Don’t forget the pool party, because Great Wolf Lodge is first and foremost an indoor waterpark. Along with this summer’s camping activities, you’ll be able to enjoy the usual waterslides, raft rides and water play areas for the whole family. You can find locations all over the country, from the original in Wisconsin to the newest coming to California. Grab your backpacks and swimsuits and book your stay now!
