11 Summer Camp Treehouses

Treehouses are quite popular these days thanks in part to the Animal Planet reality show Treehouse Masters and Airbnb. But nothing says treehouse quite like a summer camp. Surprisingly, they aren’t as common as you might think at camps around the country (photographs of them at least) but these are some of the treehouses you’ll find at camps around the country. You can see additional summer camp treehouse photos at Camping Coast to Coast and Gary Forster’s website.

  1. Woodeden Easter Seals Camp in London, Ontario Canada also has a wheelchair accessible tree house. It over hangs a huge cliff and looks over a river. I don’t think they have photos on line but their director is active on #CampPros
