A successful campfire story should include an isolated setting, suspenseful action, and an escaped fast-food mascot. Hone your campfire tales with today’s Groupon: for $750, you get a four-day family camp for up to four family members at Windsor Mountain International Summer Camp in Windsor, New Hampshire on September 2–5 (a $1,500 value). Reservations must be made by August 1, when this Groupon expires.
Windsor Mountain International Summer Camp hosts families on four-day rustic retreats on 365 acres of rural white-pine forest. Parents, accompanied by their children, can return to the days of bunking in cabins and dorms, roasting marshmallows, and kindling campfires with only a piece of flint and a smartphone. A daily activities schedule abounds with aquatic endeavors, such as canoeing, sailing, and swimming; adventurous challenges, such as zip lining and ropes courses; and creative activities, including music, theater, and arts and crafts. A winding network of hiking trails transports forest explorers along the shores of hidden lakes and through dense pine woodlands, where hikers can seek answers to the philosophical question of whether it’s possible to hear a falling tree’s cries for help.
The mess hall fills bellies with from-scratch meals made with local ingredients, including produce picked from the camp’s garden. After meals, parents can take advantage of the camp’s childcare for a chance for tot-free trots through the woods.
