June is one of my favorite months for plenty of reasons. I celebrate my birthday and the beginning of summer. It seems that everyone’s mood is lifted during the warmer months with the increased temperatures and more sunshine.

June brings more outdoor BBQs and concerts, bonfires with friends and family and water activities. We have a lot to look forward to this summer.

June also stands for National Camping Month. This month recognizes camping in hopes bring the community outside more. Maybe go camping with a group of friends, family, or your other half.

I have gone camping a few times and enjoyed roasting marshmallows and enjoy the beauty of mother nature. It is so peaceful to be outdoors and hear all of the wildlife. It is relaxing to stargaze and look at the moon as well, that is one of my favorite things to do in summer.

To be honest, I do prefer glamping but who does not? Here are places in the Hudson Valley that you can head on over and join in on the camping experience.
