The best part of being a kid isn’t school or play time or having the metabolism to eat all the ice cream you want. It’s being able to go to summer camp! (Or at least it is for the intentions of this article.) And so many of us cultivated our love of the outdoors at summer camp. So in honor of the pretty places that first inspired us all, here’s our look at some of the loveliest summer camps you’ll find on the map. (Or the internet.)
This girl’s language camp is situated in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. This sunset does Canada proud – clearly, it’s taunting its southern neighbors to top it. No word on if any state has yet to come through, but my money is on California.

|I am dissapointed that Greenopia didn't include the 8 capms from Farm and Wilderness in Vermont. As a 3x camper and 2x employee, I can speak to their "Green Quotient" being off the charts! F&W was green before it was cool. What makes them unique (from their website): <>F&W allows children a total removal from the bustle and demands of their busy, electronic lives. There is no recorded music, no television, and no electronic gadget of any kind at F&W. <>F&W allows each person time for quiet introspection, and supports greater self-understanding. <>F&W emphasizes self within community. Each person has a valued role to play within the larger group. This community-building focus fosters a greater understanding of human interdependence and how to work and succeed within a group. <>F&W encourages physical, emotional and spiritual exploration within clearly set boundaries of safety. Campers are encouraged to find their own edge of challenge. http://www.farmandwilderness.org/about/what-makes-fandw-unique|
