Families looking for a safe, convenient and fun getaway this summer can enjoy the nostalgic fun of summer camp without tents, bugs or the risk of rainouts during Great Wolf Lodge’s Summer CampIn celebration. The program provides guests with several exclusive, limited-time offerings complemented by the resort’s signature family-friendly attractions including the expansive indoor waterpark with slides, raft rides and water play areas for all ages.

“Great Wolf Lodge is proud to offer a fun, safe getaway for families looking to create lasting, heartwarming memories this summer and beyond,” said Kenny Funk, senior vice president of resort experiences for Great Wolf Resorts. “Our Summer CampIn celebration invites families to relive the time-honored tradition of summer camp with ease, allowing the opportunity to relax and spend quality time together enjoying all the fun summer events at our resort.”

The completely weatherproof celebration includes special camp-themed programming like pool parties, character appearances, dances, games, arts & crafts and evening s’mores by the lodges’ own “s’moreliers” for an endless summer experience.

As soon as campers arrive, they will discover the lodges decked out for summer camp, with a “Welcome Campers!” banner at the porte cochere and pennants hanging from the ceiling.
