I am so excited about Camp Mom, this is exactly what I need to help me create the kind of summer experience I want for my kids! I tend to have great expectations for the summer but pulling it all together while managing a house and family can make it difficult to execute. We are also on a tight budget so I am looking forward to giving my kids great summer activities that we can do at home. With four kids even reasonably priced extracurricular classes are not an option this year, thank you for writing this superb ebook! ~ Lorien V. Mom to 4

  1. What a great idea – I look forward to checking this out! And I absolutely *love* the idea of a “Summer Bucket List.” We all have so many great plans for the season, but then we blink and it’s over – this helps us focus on what we’d most like to get done during those short, precious months.

  2. I just bought this via paypal. feeling a bit silly but.. no sign of it lol

      Thanks so much for picking up the pack. When you purchase through paypal, the distribution system automatically sends the download information to the email address associated with your paypal account. This proves tricky for some people who have linked a different email address to their paypal account than the one they typically use. If you can check your email accounts (possibly check junk folders as well) I will check with the distributors to have them check their records. Rest assured that if there’s a problem with the link it can/will be resent. Thanks so much!

  6. My son is three… how many of these activities are suited for very young kids?

    • notjustcute

      Hi Sarah! I’d say three is a great age for the activities in this pack. I’d say it fits wonderfully for most two or three year olds up to about seven to nine year olds. The activities are very open-ended so they fit well for a wide range of ages. I hope you enjoy it! ~ Amanda

    Hi Amanda, I have only just seen this via a post from Janet Lansbury on facebook. (why oh why don’t I see your posts on facebook?? Hhhmmm… Another question for another day!)
    My question for now is, do you have a similar “Camp Mom: WINTER Activities pack” for those of us in the Southern hemisphere?? I LOVE the sound of this pack, and would love to read your new e-book, but I think I will cry if I have to read about all wonderful things you lucky folks will be able to do in your beautiful warm weather! What are the chances?

    • Hi Kirstie! So glad to see you here! We don’t have a winter activity book as of yet. This is our first production as a group. We discussed those of you in the winter seasons right now, but realized we had to focus on one project at a time. We hope to create future productions and hopefully then we could offer both seasons simultaneously. In the meantime, I would recommend Jean Van’tHul’s ebook, The Artful Winter, which you can find here: Also, I would recommend the site, Childhood 101 by a brilliant Aussie blogger, Christie Burnett here: All that said, I hope you continue to read here as well! You can follow me using the icons at the top right of the page. Thanks!

        Thanks so much for those links, Amanda. I will definitely check them out! Perhaps I could purchase and just not look at it until Summer… I shall think about that one :>
        By the way, I do follow you on facebook, I think it was just one of those facebook glitches where you don’t always see posts from pages that you have liked.
        Enjoy your warmer months!! :>

    I decided to go ahead – I couldn’t resist! What’s wrong with pounding leaves inside anyway? (I have my “yes” hat firmly on my head today) ;>
