Are you looking for an affordable family vacation this summer? Maybe you were planning a long weekend trip to the Outer Banks but, once you added up $1,050 for the hotel for three nights, $300 for meals in restaurants, $276 to rent kayaks, $176 for a zip line adventure for two hours and the total of $1,802 felt a little too steep.  Or maybe after a fantastic spring break vacation, the bank account for summer vacation is depleted? Well, we have the answer for you.  A Family Camp weekend vacation for four on the banks of the James River (August 24-27, 2017) costs only $900 (only $500 for the chalets – a bargain!) and includes an enriching spiritual experience.

Your registration at Family Camp weekend includes all meals, lodging, swimming, boating, zip lines, rock wall climbing, archery, worship, chaplain program, our NEW Superman Swing and more. NEW this year, Chanco is offering family campers an optional ferry ride excursion to Jamestown and a special Closing Celebration. Many families with young children have utilized Family Camp to introduce their child to Chanco before attending a full one or two-week session the next summer. Some families enjoy Family Camp as an opportunity to reunite with extended family for much less expense than other venues. Some camp alumni families use Family Camp as an opportunity to reunite with camp friends! Many families report enjoying having their family all together in God’s great outdoors, unplugged from technology and enjoying new adventures together.

Family Camp offers your family a choice of activities so you may be as active or as restful as you want all day long! Choose to lounge by the pool, play games, read books and nap all day or choose to paddle board, hike, fish, kayak, sail, climb the 32’ high rock wall, or fly along a zip line or on the brand new Superman Swing to fill your day! The choice is yours! Best of all are the evenings under a million stars, with just the sounds of wind and crickets, a bonfire crackling, laughter and singing. What better way to spend three nights with your family at such a reasonable cost? No hassle of cooking or cleaning, just enjoying your family, challenging yourself with new activities, and spending time relaxing and playing in God’s great outdoors. Family Camp is the perfect way to visit Chanco for the first time or for your 50th time.
