Friends & Family and Mother Child Camp

Our all-inclusive four day/ three night Friends & Family camps are for families, couples, groups of friends, or individuals of any age looking to get away to Westwind!

Also all-inclusive four day/three night Mother Child Camps are for moms, aunts, grandmas, sisters, mentors and children ages 3-13 and under.

The schedule for all family camps includes programming for everyone! Blocks of “Family Time” activities offered include: arts & crafts, canoe & kayak, challenge course, hike, gaga ball, and various other camp activities. During “Adult Time”, kids go with age specific small groups that Westwind calls “color groups”. In these color groups, kids decide with their Westwind staff leader what they want to do like hike, play on the beach, games, art and more. While the kids are off playing and enjoying nature, adults get to choose if they want to get a massage, go on a hike, do art projects, play games,  paddle in a kayak or just sit on the beach and enjoy reading a book.  At each family camp, Westwind Teen Volunteer Babysitters come to assist with the kids both during the days and at night so adults can enjoy time together.
