The idea of summer camp brings up images of children canoing, crafting, and shooting arrows. But what if you could make a camp that was meaningful and interesting for the whole family?
An example is Red Pine Camp, a success for over 75 years. They offer camping for the whole family, with the option to join in any of the activities planned for all ages or just relax.
Could you create a camp business for families in your rural area? Take advantage of your area’s unique climate and culture. Incorporate the local heritage. Make it special.
Where did I get this idea? From Pistachio, who mentioned the Red Pine Camp on Twitter.

Becky I love the way you take an offhand comment and turn it into an idea that someone else can use. Kudos to you!

Ditto to what Susan said. I love that you are spreading the idea of Red Pine. My friends who have gone for decades are so totally devoted to the experience. My family can hardly wait to go someday.
