I am so stoked to announce the newest addition to our recreational activities available at the Brighton KOA. Drum Roll please………
DISC GOLF or what used to be lovingly referred to as Frolf.
I am saving as much money as possible this year to be able to, God willing, purchase some new cabins for our 2018 season. But, I didn’t want to go a whole season without adding something new and exciting for our campers.
We’ve just signed the deal for a course designer to come and help us set up a truly unique and somewhat challenging 9-hold Disc Golf course along our walking trail.
If you haven’t played, I’ve been told it can be quite addicting and fun for all ages. For you dads out there, grab your beer (cans please around the campground) and some discs and head out for an hour of fun and competition.
Or grab the family and all head out to get some exercise and fun while chucking frisbies at baskets to see if anyone can get a “hole-in-one”.
We’ve decided not to charge green fees for anyone to play. If you need to rent discs there will be a rental charge and deposit (the deposit being returned once the discs are safely back in our care) or you can purchase your own discs in the store and continue to play all summer at no extra charge. If you want a score card there will be a very small charge for those and the pencil just to cover the expense.
We really wanted to add value to the camping experience without it being a major expense to families – especially if you have a large family.
I hope this new addition will continue to make the Brighton KOA a great camping family experience.
One of the reasons I love owning a campground is getting to know the repeat campers better. We are so lucky to have such loyal campers that come back so often throughout the season that it really gives us a chance to develop more of a friendship. I look forward to seeing their kids grow up over the years.
This next camper experience was shared by one of these families I’d say was developing into a friendship. They camped with us 6 times in the 2016 season and I am really looking forward to seeing them again in 2017.
One of the weekends they camped was a long weekend so you can see them having sparklers at their site in the main photo. I LOVE the long weekends because of the fireworks. Hearing everyone clap at the end of the show always makes the cost and effort worth it.
The mom, who sent me the email, and her husband have two small children and one of the things they love about our campground is that everything is fairly close and the kids know the campground so well that her and hubby can get a bit of down time together while the kids go and play. It’s nice to see them all riding together on the wagon!
Here are some photos of them enjoying the pool. I know this is a favourite place for my kids too. We keep it heated to 84 so that the parents can enjoy getting in with the kids!
They happen to live very close by so she also mentioned in her email how great it is to pack up at home and within a very short period of time they are all set up and camping. They never hear “are we there yet?” In fact, they truly make their site a home away from home.
And then she made a comment that made my heart swell because it truly is my biggest desire that we create a campground that entertains children so that parents can take a much needed break. She said that she never hears “mommy I’m bored” at our KOA. It makes me so happy to hear that.
