Want to get in the Christmas spirit? 

The holiday spirit is spreading at Camp Christmas in Pine Valley

We were invited to check out Camp Christmas this season now in its third year, and boy were we in for a treat. 

This quaint mountain top town is 3,000 feet in elevation. The village is adorned with lights, and it's pretty chilly up there Christmas is definitely in the air. We wore coats, hats and gloves. I didn't think we would need them, but we did.

The Holiday Atmosphere is Alive! 

Christmas music is playing, and there are plenty of spots to grab a hot cocoa and s'mores and get cozy sitting by a fire pit. 

There are also plenty of activities for all ages including: hay rides, archery, bouncy houses, face painting, a game room, train rides, laser tag, a tree top climbing wall, H20 on the Glow-Dancing Water Show, live entertainment,“Sappy,” The Talking Christmas Tree, and a free photo booth to capture that perfect family Christmas photo and more!

My husband and son loved playing laser tag. We also enjoyed dinner at The Alpine Peak Buffet Restaurant which offered a variety of hot homemade soups and salads.

I wasn't in the Christmas spirit when I arrived at Camp Christmas, but that changed quickly once my eyes took in the thousands of sparkling holiday lights. The town of Pine Valley is adorable. It reminded me of my childhood visits to my grandmother's house in Virginia. 

Camp Christmas is truly a special place to visit with family and friends. You can easily spend three hours or more doing the activities, and seeing their holiday show which has a small town feel. There's also a nativity walk, and manger.

What I enjoyed the most was going on a tractor hayride which is about twenty minutes in length. As you listen to holiday music, you can check out the larger than life inflatable Christmas themed characters. The night of our ride, children were singing along to the music. It was just one of those really special holiday moments. 

There are a few dining options at Camp Christmas including: Rick's Bar-B-Q, The Summit Grill Snack Bar, The Alpine Peak Buffet, Altitude Cafe Coffee Shop, and The Sugar Shack. 

Camp Christmas is open weekends, Friday through Sunday, November 24th-26th. Then December 1-3, 8-10, 15-17 and 19-23; each evening 5:30 to 9:00 p.m.
