Outdoor adventures, fun, games and more!

Summer Fun University Logo
As America's Family Resort, We know a good day at Camp is when the camper excitedly tells you about their day and falls asleep early. We strive to make this happen for every camper.

Smugglers’ Summer Fun University offers something for everyone — from games, to nature, cool art projects, pools & waterslides. Plus, our special interest programs help your kids learn new skills or hone in on their favorite activities like high adventure courses, survival skills or mountain biking! Our professionally trained counselors organize and oversee all of our unique activities that will enrich and engage your kids — all day long. We’re so sure that your kids will have a great experience with our Summer Fun University, that we guarantee family fun*!
