Unplug in Quebec, Canada

Our family loves to travel, but exploring overseas is a little too pricey for our budget—and the whole process is a bit daunting, to be honest. So learning last spring about the possibilities Quebec, Canada, offers to travelers piqued my interest.

Review: Goosebumps

It's officially summer and that means it's officially time for a light-hearted, fun-filled.... and this year.. slightly spooky show courtesy of The Coterie Theatre! If you loved telling stories around the campfire, or huddling under sheets spinning spooky yarns with flashlights at summer camp, you'll love this summer's production, "Goosebumps: Phantom of the Auditorium The Musical."

We’re Baaaack

When children attend a sleep away camp, they may be leaving home for a few days, but what comes back with them is where the real good stuff lies. So what can you expect when your kids get back?

Get Ready for Camp!

To help ensure a successful camp experience, start working on a few habits at home now so that when your children are on their own at camp, they can handle these situations with ease!

Life Lessons Learned at Camp

Camp was utterly magical then—bug bites, calamine lotion and all—and nothing dampened the experience when I was old enough to be an official camper myself.
