Whether you're inspired by Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, or get all of the nostalgic feels thinking about your childhood summers spent at sleep away camp, there are tons of reasons to opt for a summer camp wedding!  Not only can it allow you to have all of your friends and family present in one place for the entire wedding weekend, but camps can also provide a beautiful backdrop with an added bonus of tons of activities to keep your guests occupied (swimming, canoeing, archery, fire pits, etc).  Keep in mind that not all summer camps host private events (and if they do they are mostly limited to spring and fall weekends) and you'll want to double check about alcohol and catering rules.  Here are 20 photos that prove summer camp is the way to go for the rustic, outdoorsy couple!
