About the Top Family Favorite Camps in the 2022 Boston Parents Paper Family Favorites

Boston Parent’s Family Favorites was born with the idea to give readers in Greater Boston and throughout New England a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Camps and all kinds of everyday categories. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Family Favorites Camps is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of February with open write-in nominations for reader’s favorite Camps taking place. Write-in nominations continue to be open until the middle of April.

As the nomination period for Camps in the first round comes to a close in mid April, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Camps being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April and May. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Camps from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in July

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote next year!
