BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Summer is finally here, and parents across the country are picking up their children from the last day of school, and dropping them off for the first day of camp.
Here are a few exclusive camps that offer children a unique alternative to sitting in front of the TV all summer long.
Girls, grades 2 through 9
$10,200 for seven weeks Camp Vega is located along the shore of Echo Lake in Maine on 300 acres of land. At Vega, campers can choose from a wide variety of activities such as archery, golf, tennis, squash, horseback riding, gymnastics, sailing, rowing and waterskiing. In arts and crafts, campers can create pottery, ceramics, stained glass or jewelry. The 40-station ropes course and two-mile mountain biking trails on the Vega Outback are part of Vega's outdoor adventure program, and Camp Vega even offers figure skating. Like many other summer camps, the directors ask that campers leave their cell phones and laptops at home to fully enjoy the Vega experience. The Camp Vega motto is "The most exciting thing a girl will find at Vega is herself."
