    >Suburban Camping Company came across this vintage inspired summer camp recently and had to share!
    Camp Wandawega is a lakefront resort in Wisconsin tranformed by designer Tereasa Surratt the process started in 2004 when she bought the run down property complete with 25 acres! Tereasa’s design motto is “found, flea or free” and so the camp has lots of unique vintage finds and repurposed items too! We will be sure to stop in next time we are in the land of cheese.. take a peek at the site and prepare to be inspired!

    For a unique getaway across the atlantic check out some of these amazing spots!

    Just an hour outside of london sits the shepherds return, anything but a hut, this place looks magical. where the only thing to do is relax and go for strolls thru the countryside, sounds perfect to us. if we ever end up in sussex we know where we will be staying!

    For a truly green holiday try ekopod located in cornwall where these unique pods sit among 3 acres of wild flowers. this luxury low carbon camping spot can plan you a surf lesson and you will be served lemon & raisin pancakes with butterscotch sauce for breakfast!

    Looking for a wind in your hair and gas pedal under foot kinda getaway try vanilla splits. you will be able to roam to your hearts content in these refurbed classic volkswagens.. a truly groovy vaca!

    Or if you prefer to stay home and let the vacation come to you there is always suburban camping co!

    >Ahh.. to be a kid again away at summer camp, meeting new friends, yummy camp food {not!}, mosquito bites and letters home begging to be picked up! we can all relate to the nervous energy of our first few days and the homesickeness that only goes away with time and new formed friendships!

    SCC just picked up a copy of Diane Falanga’s book “P.S. I Hate it Here!” kids letters from camp. Set up a backyard Campout with Suburban Camping Co. and you wont get a letter like this! Great book and a funny read for summer. P.S. we spoke to the author and will have copies of the book for our future campouts!
