Mountaineer Family Camp at Snowshoe Mountain Resort, August 6 – 13

August 06 – August 13, 2017

The family that bikes, hikes, swims, eats and adventures together, selfies together.

Although we’re double-checking with the math department, there are an infinite number of possibilities for putting together each day at Family Camp. Here’s just one:

From Sunrise …

Rise and shine, then hit the breakfast buffet for a hearty pancake feast as the WVU bedhead champ is crowned. At 9:30, it’s time for your family’s introduction to yoga, because … why not? With your chi perfectly balanced, the kids embark on a Geocache Treasure Hunt while the two of you tour the mountain on off-road RZRs. During the free hour before lunch, your littlest suggests an easy hike with a killer photo op. At lunch, you reconnect with an old classmate while the kids overindulge at the sundae bar.

…. To Sunset:

Two o’clock hits and your gang puts their cooking skills to work at the Mountaineer Chef Class and Family Cook Off. You barely lose to the Thatchers … again. Climbing Wall and Eurobungie anyone? Or is the Scrambled Family Golf Tourney in order? Yeah, that. A little rest back at the room after the tourney, then off to one of the best BBQ rib dinners of your life. At the night’s Mountaineer Family Rally, you not only let your WVU pride shine, you team up with the Mountaineer Mascot to lead the crowd in one of the most rousing renditions of “Country Roads” ever sung. Just before the 9pm Movie Under the Stars, your spouse has the brilliant idea of using a Snowshoe babysitter so the two of you can snuggle under a blanket sipping hot toddies until the credits roll.

… and that was just a Tuesday.
