Not your dad's camping, Glamping is the fusion of glamorous + camping that brings a touch of luxury to the outdoor experience. (WIthout the muss or the fuss.) Unlike traditional (old school), camping—an afternoon fraught wrestling with tent poles, battling dust, coolers, and the elements—glamping offers cozy accommodations that don't compromise on comfort or style. Comfortable bedding, electricity, wifi, and a lux bathhouse nearby, you can't miss. Here's the round up of our favorites: Pacific Dunes Resort, Teton Peaks Resort, Cottonwood Camp.
With all the time you'll save on set-up, you'll be able to ENJOY twice as much with dun experiences and outings. There are so many choices to enjoy before summer drifts away. Or? Toss in the towel and embrace your inner, (obviously well-deserved), lazy. Glamp and do nada.

2. Kayaking: Glide and Chill
The first thing to go with summer rays, is the opportunity for a pleasant dip. Kayaking provides a relaxing and serene way to enjoy the season's offerings. Drift along tranquil lakes or meandering rivers, surrounded by the refreshing embrace of water and sunny warmth. Whether you're seeking a peaceful solo journey or a bonding experience with friends and family, kayaking offers a unique perspective of your surroundings.
3. Rafting: Riding the Rapids
For those craving a more exhilarating experience on the water, rafting offers an adrenaline-packed adventure. Catch a thrill of rapids before the cold weather sets in. Guided rafting trips are available throughout several locations in the Mighty West, From Riggins, to the Deschutes, and the mighty rivers of Montana and Washington. Not only is rafting an adrenaline rush, it's a lesson in teamwork (great for groups and retreats), as you and your fellow paddlers work in harmony to conquer the river's challenges.
4. Doing Absolutely Nothing: The Art of Glamp and do Nada
In a world that's constantly moving, sometimes the best way to celebrate summer is by doing the exact opposite. Nothing at all. Embrace the art of relaxation during your glamping escape. Find a cozy spot, whether it's a hammock by the lake or a plush chair near a crackling fire, and let yourself unwind. Allow the soothing sounds of nature to lull you into a state of tranquility as you read a book, meditate, or simply gaze at the crystal blue sky. Cold beer and book sold separately.
