The Travel Mom’s Marvelous San Diego #CampTravelMom 2023 was MAGNIFICENT!


Thank you to The Travel Mom, Emily Kaufman, for including me in her marvelous #CampTravelMom weekend at the San Diego Mission Bay Resort! My favorite thing growing up was going to Jewish summer camp and it was such a blast to return to that feeling with a friend from Stephen Wise Temple!

Dinner with Visit San Diego, Madam Tussauds and LegoLand California

I absolutely loved my time at Camp Travel Mom, where the excitement was off the charts! The weekend was an extraordinary blend of travel writers, karaoke, and disco, creating an atmosphere of pure joy and exhilaration.

One unforgettable night, we took the stage by storm, showcasing our karaoke skills and unleashing our inner rockstars.

Breakfast by the Pool with RVShare and TravelGuard

Seaside Brunch Bliss with Atlantis Bahamas, Expedia, VRBO, and Travel Costa Mesa

Afternoon Adventures with Massage Envy, pool side drinks with The Palm Beaches Florida, Grand Hyatt Kauai and Plant Juice Oils

And let me tell you, the disco night was an absolute blast! We danced the night away, donning our most outrageous costumes for an epic contest. To add to the fun, I brought my trusty hula hoop, spinning and twirling to the beat of the music.

With the support of incredible brand sponsors, we also enjoyed thrilling jet ski rides, valuable networking opportunities, and luxurious massages. Camp Travel Mom truly knows how to create an experience that ignites passion, sparks connections, and leaves you with lifelong memories.
