    • Why confine yourself to a room in a hotel or conference center when you can make use of 100 acres of open lawns and woodlands in the countryside surrounded by all the beauty of nature.


    • Create the wedding you want without limitation. Want to bring your own caterers? decorations? your best friend Sally’s dog? Go ahead! You can make the schedule that works best for you without anyone telling you otherwise.


    • Summer Camps are set in beautiful locations and available during peak seasons. Whether it is spring, summer or fall, the great American outdoors is a truly spectacular backdrop for any event. Get married on a hilltop or in the woods, with beautiful green lawns stretching out as far as you can see or under a canopy in the trees - You can do it wherever you like.


    • It’s a Summer Camp and that means all the benefits of having plenty of activities right outside your front door. Basketball, baseball, go-karts, swimming pools, climbing towers, woodland hikes, mountain bikes and more. You name it, they have it and they are all available to entertain you and your guests.


    • By renting the facilities, you have the run of the place and can be as lavish or as cost effective as you like. Let them do all the catering or host your own BBQs. You can bring in food trucks or enjoy Camp favorites like grilled cheese!


    • Having people look in at what is going on can feel impersonal when you are trying to celebrate with friends and family. By having the entire place to yourselves you can hold your dream wedding away from peering eyes and really make it special.


    • Who is going to make the ceremony and then who will only be invited to the reception??? You don’t have to worry about that at Camp. With bunks, cabins and accommodation normally used to holding hundreds of people, you can invite everyone you want with no fear of running out of room.


    • If you ever went to summer camp then you know how special it is and you’ll get to dive back into that world for the weekend to celebrate your special day. Plus any guests that never went to Camp can finally see what all the fuss is about.


    • There is no expectation that you will be just there for the day. Many Summer Camps will let you have the facilities overnight or even for the whole weekend. This means that you are in no rush. You can really savor every moment with your guests.


    • Imagine getting to the end of your wedding celebrations and watching fireworks paint the sky and after that, instead of having to put everyone in taxis home, you can all wrap up warm and sit round a fire, roasting marshmallows and talking about how great the weekend was. When you are finally done for the night you’ll only have a short walk back too your cabin!
