Over the weekend we drove out to Great Wolf Lodge Fitchburg to experience the all new Summer Camp-In event that starts this Memorial Day at Great Wolf Lodge resorts throughout the country. The Summer Camp-In is everything you love about summer camping along with the great activities at Great Wolf Lodge.
We attended a media preview event hosted by Great Wolf Lodge. All opinions are honest and my own.
Great Wolf Lodge is an indoor water park resort that has amazing wet play but also focuses on dry play family fun. They have family activities throughout the day to entertain guests of all ages.
This year they are starting a brand new event: Great Wolf Lodge Summer Camp-In. Summer Camp-In will feature new food and activities to make summer a great time to enjoy staying at Great Wolf Lodge. Summer Camp-In begins Memorial Day and ends Labor Day Weekend.
Activities at Great Wolf Lodge During Summer Camp-In
Who doesn’t love a pool party?! For the summer Great Wolf Lodge is bringing the fun to the water parks. This will be the first time there will be organized activities at the pools. We got to experience the Ducky 500 race and it was so fun!
During the day guests can decorate a Duck to enter in the Ducky 500 race that will be held inside the water park. Count down and watch in anticipation as your duck crosses the finish line. During our visit we earned 3rd place for the race and received a Great Wolf Lodge prize. It was a lot of fun!
There will also be limbo and other activities during the pool time fun. I really like that Great Wolf Lodge focuses on family time and parents can enjoy the activities with their kids.
Dining at Great Wolf Lodge for the Summer Camp-In
This summer Great Wolf Lodge will be adding BBQ and seasonal items to the buffet menu at Lodge Wood Fired Grill. This buffet was a hit with my family and had great offerings like homemade mac and cheese, brussel sprouts, and corn on the cob.
This summer you can enjoy breakfast with the Great Wolf Lodge Characters Wiley and friends, and take some fun family photos. We always enjoy character breakfast because it allows you extra time with the characters and a more relaxed pace.
The Trailblazer Challenge lets the kids earn stickers for participating in activities throughout your stay. It attaches to their lanyard and they keep it with them during their resort visit. The activities are so much fun and the kids loved all the arts and crafts, and earning badges.
We did bracelet making, duck decorating, cornhole, button making, plate decorating for story time, limbo, and dance parties. There will also be trivia, bingo, face painting, balloon making, and many more fun activities for kids of all ages. My kids really enjoyed the button making because they could get creative with it. They made camp buttons and created their own Harry Potter and Marvel buttons.
