Got summer plans or are you looking for an affordable summer vacation for you and your family? I totally understand that the summer time can be quite challenging with the kids out of school and vacations spots priced very high.19453081_1509320312452285_5186337999748068131_o

My husband and I also faced the challenge of trying to find a good summer spot for our family of four without spending too much on flight and hotel costs. We resolved to take a mini-vacation to a resort that was 4.5 hours away but still offered great amenities and fun activities for the kids.

Life often gets so busy, but it is important to take time as a family to recharge and bond. According to Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for every activity under heaven” (NLT). Here are some affordable fun options:

Summa Claude Initiative Camp

JHDC Summer Enrichment Camp

Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg, VA

Ocean City Water Park, MD

Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake
