For some, choosing a summer camp is a lot like choosing where to buy a house. The most important element is location. The location of a camp can help to determine what sort of activities the camp will be able to offer, from day trips to three-day adventures. One of the more popular locations for summer camps is the area around Cape Cod.

Cape Cod is a stunning beach community in Massachusetts on the Atlantic Ocean. The natural beauty is second to none and the balmy summer climate makes it a perfect vacation destination. Camps on "The Cape," as it is known by many in the northeast, are blessed with close proximity to the ocean and the beach and a thriving community overflowing with opportunities for culture and fun.

Adding Variety to the Summer Camp Experience

Campers always look forward to off-camp trips, particularly when they attend camp for longer sessions. Trips can range from evenings at the theatre to baseball games to nature excursions. The Cape boasts the oldest professional summer theater in America, which produces all manner of musicals and dramatic productions that can be enjoyed by all ages. Additionally, Cape Cod has its own summer baseball league and campers can enjoy the thrill of being at a live baseball game.

One of the greatest opportunities to be found on Cape Cod, however, is seeing the wide variety of nature and marine life. Just off of Cape Cod Bay, on Stellwagen Bank, is a feeding ground for whales which is known as one of the finest in the world. There is nothing like watching magnificent marine mammals feed and play. It is an unforgettable experience and one that campers will remember for years.
