Dates: Memorial Day – Labor Day 2012
Cost/ Discount: $22 – $180/ Night
Location: Herkimer Diamond Mines, New York
Why not mine your own? Vist New York’s own Herkimer Diamond Mine and KOA Kampgrounds. Stay a night, stay the weekend, stay for a week. Accommodations range from pitching your own tent, use your own RV, or choose from their cabin options.
There’s a little something for everyone; whether you want to get in touch with nature or have all the amenities of home.
It get’s better – most lodges sleep 4 adults so if you’re not looking to spend some quality family time with the kids then you can grab your friends, chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows and have s’more fun than you can image. Do the math $180 x 2nights = $360 / 4 of you and and your friends = $90 per person – we think that qualifies as a CHEAP weekend retreat.
Let’s not forget the have Rock & Gem Day Camp for children ages 6-13:
Dates: July 9-12 & 16-19th, 2012
Cost/ Discount: $200/ camper ($175 for each additional family member)
