Something with the word “lodge” in the name may not sound like a summer destination, but Great Wolf Lodge has a little something up its sleeve. The rustic-meets-comfort look may say winter, but the lodge’s lineup of summer camp activities say something else.

The Summer Camp In series welcomes guests of all ages, families and friends, to enjoy pool parties, barbecue dinners, campfire ceremonies with dancing and s’mores and fun summer-themed rooms.

Great Wolf Lodge has all sorts of activities, including arts and craft, keeping the kids occupied and having fun. The Summer Camp In package is available through Sept. 2. If the themed fun isn’t really your style, no worries, the lodge resort also has activities and attractions for the older crowd without kids in tow. With an epic indoor water park, you can boogie board, surf and cool off through thousands of square feet of aqua-centric fun.

Begin your day with a workout in the pool, plan for daily yoga sessions or head to the arcade for some throwback fun. There are even adults-only events like Wine Down where you can relax.

With 17 resort locations across North America, finding a Great Wolf Lodge to enjoy is just a matter of deciding how far you want to travel.

Leak-Proof Silicone Bottles for Liquids

It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
