Camp Mom! Summer Activities Pack

Camp Mom Summer Activities Pack

Have your best summer yet!

Camp Mom Lets You Easily Plan for Summer Fun.

We’ve got just 18 summers with our kids home (give or take) and we want to make the most of it – create those childhood memories that we hope our kids will enjoy looking back on for their whole lives. That’s a lot of pressure!

We head into summer with the best of intentions, but often it ends up being days of sibling squabbles and hearing “I’m booored!!” while we snap back, “Well, find something to do!!”

That’s where the Camp Mom! Summer Activities Pack comes in.  We’ve created this pack to help you plan and do the kind of activities your whole family will enjoy.

It’s going to help you (and me!) make this the best summer yet with our kids because it’s full of simple ideas that will be successful for all of the kids and that don’t require a bunch of fuss.

This downloadable PDF includes:

  • planning pages,
  • tips on managing sibling fights and
  • how to have fun in a museum with kids, as well as
  • activities,
  • arts and crafts and
  • book lists.

The great thing is that it’s formatted so that you can start any time – stretch it out all summer or make it an exciting activity week.  The Camp Mom pack will help you plan for fun either way.

 I am so excited about Camp Mom, this is exactly what I need to help me create the kind of summer experience I want for my kids! I tend to have great expectations for the summer but pulling it all together while managing a house and family can make it difficult to execute. We are also on a tight budget so I am looking forward to giving my kids great summer activities that we can do at home. With four kids even reasonably priced extracurricular classes are not an option this year, thank you for writing this superb ebook! ~ Lorien V. Mom to 4


Wow!  What an incredible and FUN resource!  Perfect for me to use with my 5&3 year old boys this summer. I am a major planner, but rarely take the time to implement the actual planning stage & then often don’t get around to the activity because of my lack of planning…so this is a perfect fix.  I can print off the planners, utilize my boys & their opinions, and make a plan that we can stick to!
I love the flexibility portion too, because with boy #3 making his debut this summer as well, we will need some built in down time & the ability to switch things up at a moments notice.  
Thanks so much for this fabulous resource! ~Karli-mom of 2.5 boys (;

Always have a fun activity for the kids!

When you download the Camp Mom! Summer Activity Pack you’ll find a section that gives tips for choosing one of the themes and planning a day or a week around it.  You can also mix and match activities and adventures from any of the summer themes and plan out a summer camp in your own home.  We give themed activity sections that include activities, adventures and book recommendations.

Summer Themes:

  • Water:  Summer is the perfect time to splash around, so this section includes  games, pretend play ideas and lots of interesting wet sensory fun.  Includes instructions for making a giant 10′x10′ “Water Blob” for kids to play on in your back yard!


  • Art: lots of painting activities and open ended art ideas.  Includes a special article by art educator Rachelle Doorley, on how to talk with your kids about fine art, even if you’re no expert (hint, it’s all about the story).  Rachelle gives us a printable list of questions that will get  kids thinking and learning about art.


  • Nature: Be explorers in your own back yard.  This section has nature art ideas, learning experiences like making a “human sundial” and a printable Garden Scavenger Hunt.

PLUS – Sensory Play Any Day theme with a printable list of ideas you can refer to any time you need an activity QUICK that will engage the kids and keep everyone happy.   The Sensory Play section also includes links to loads of sensory activities that rank as favorites with our kids.

I got the pack, but not the free copy of Amandas book.


Alissa Marquess May 20, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Fatima – if you go to the download page, from the link you were sent after you ordered, during the month of May you’ll see a code for downloading Amanda’s book for free. Go ahead and email me if you have any more difficulties and I’ll be happy to help you out.
