Brits are Discovering a New Kind of Family Vacation in the States

Brits are Discovering Travel in the US is Affordable, Fun and Family Friendly

Several British families have discovered a perfect vacation spot in the Northeastern United States. According to the “Discover New England” website, the northeastern U.S. attracts a little less than 10% of all British visitors to the United States. Families from London, Cambridge and Essex have vacationed at Medomak Camp in Washington, Maine. With the value of the dollar strong and camp tuition being all inclusive, more and more Brits are finding it an affordable way to not only visit but experience the United States.

Medomak Camp, founded in 1904, is a traditional American summer camp that today has a unique twist; we welcome the entire family! We offer eight, one week sessions of camp fun for ages 2 to 102! Families sleep on comfortable beds in spacious pine cabins, eat delicious hearty meals prepared by our chef (using fresh herbs and vegetables from our organic gardens) and enjoy activities such as archery, arts and crafts, tennis and naturalist activities. For our adult campers we also offer yoga, gallery walks, Maine beer and cheese tasting as well as offering massages by a certified massage therapist on staff. Our camp boasts a sandy cove on a pristine lake where campers can sail, swim, fish, kayak, scull, canoe or participate in a daily lakeside arts project. Campers enjoy nightly campfires as well as dark starry skies (including star walks!). Of course, the essential campfire treat of s’mores, a toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker “sandwich”, is a staple at Medomak!

Medomak is a very special place. We have traveled to Maine for the past 15 years and have not experienced "inland" Maine like this before. The staff and activities allowed our family the opportunity to have fun together yet also enjoy time on our own.

Today's hectic pace and lifestyle of most families does not allow for much regular quality time outdoors. Medomak offers a venue where families can reconnect, nuture themselves, and renew. It is a fun place to play games and feel carefree.

As we wind down our summer and begin to gear up for another school year, we will fondly remember Medomak for its beauty and simplicity. Thank you for a wonderful week!
