When was the last time you were able to get away for a weekend? Imagine spending quality time with the kids in a totally different setting, where you could enjoy one another's company and get away from the day-to-day pressures, routines, and responsibilities of home? If that sounds good to you, consider attending a Single Parent Family Camp in your area. Most of the camps that offer single parent weekends also provide workshops and a variety of recreational activities for the whole family. Some camps even offer scholarships or financial assistance.
You'll notice that some of the camps listed here are run by faith-based organizations. In most cases, these single parent family camps are open to all single parents, and are not limited to one faith or denomination.E-mail the About.com Guide to Single Parents to submit a resource to be added to this list.
