Holiday Gift Ideas—Give the Gift of Camp


AMES, Iowa--Toys? Games? Electronic gadgets? Parents and grandparents can simplify the holiday hunt with a “Gift of Camp.” 

The American Camp Association (ACA) offers a Web site resource from which parents and grandparents can print out an ACA Camp Gift Certificate and tuck it in a new backpack, roll it in a new sleeping bag, or wrap it around a new flashlight. Some 2,400 camps appear on the Web site at: http://www.CampParents.org/giftcamp.php.

One featured camp is the Iowa 4-H Center near Madrid in Boone County, Iowa. Find out more at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/4hcenter/, call (515) 795-3338, or e-mail 4hcentermail@iastate.edu.
