Fun Overnight Summer Sleepaway Camp Guide for Edmonton Kids

This will be the first year that our children will be making memories at sleepaway camp. At seven and nine, we’re sending them away for an entire week, to enjoy the camp experience. They’re going to have new experiences, make new friends and have a wonderful, wonderful time.

I’ve got some fantastic sleepaway camp memories. One year, a bunkmate in our rural British Columbia camp collected every giant slug that she could find – these things were thick, green, black and up to six inches long, in a pile of slime in a plastic grocery bag. Disgusting, but it’s something that I’ll never forget. Sleepaway camps in Edmonton give our children the same experiences.
