For more than 60 years, the staff at YMCA Camp Roger has been developing programs that get kids and teens off the couch and in the great outdoors. In doing so, its aim is to help the kids develop social skills that can foster confidence, independence, and leadership. In addition to traditional sleepover camps—where 6–10 kids stay in cabins at night and practice mountain biking, archery, hiking, and arts and crafts during the day—the camp offers focused programs such as creative arts or horseback riding. And if the clan needs a break from the housecat’s despotic demands, it can attend a family camp over Labor Day weekend.
Morning Star Balloons ushers cloud hunters toward their quarry, navigating the skies as transfixed guests float high above Utah's pristine mountainscape. The seasoned, FAA-certified pilots employ experience flying military jets, winning numerous hot air balloon competitions, and establishing dominance over out-of-control umbrellas as they confidently steer the colorful vessels to heights of between 500–1,500 feet. Groups of up to 12 soar above Park City’s lush landscape and during early-morning flights, with a complimentary champagne or nonalcoholic toast welcoming passengers back to solid ground.

Most people wait until their car develops an ecosystem in its wheel well before deciding it's time to clean it. Travel Clean won't judge you for your procrastination. Instead, the friendly staff will guide you into the car-wash tunnel. All you'll have to do is relax while Travel Clean's massive army of Three Laws––compliant car-care robots––wade into the mess and give your car a pristine cleaning while eerily chanting, "Wash, wax, restore." You won't have to get out of the car, ruin your suede shoes, or make small talk with the weird waiting-room clown. While you do whatever one does in the privacy of a car wash, your car will get a refreshing undercarriage cleaning, a Wheel Brite treatment to clean the dirt and break dust from your wheels, and a patented silicon wax to go with your renewed sparkle.
