Fantastically Fun Activities for Families to Enjoy This June!
Summer’s here and there’s so much to do! Here are some perfect things to do with the kids this month.
There’s a reason they put June right in the middle of the year. It gives us all something to look forward to when the year begins, and a whole month of fun to keep us going until the year ends. That’s right, we’re declaring it here: June is the very best month!!!
Summer (the very best season) starts in June. June is Pride Month. June has important holidays like Juneteenth. June is the month where we celebrate dads, cats, and donuts (three pretty fantastic things). And Neil Patrick Harris, Venus Williams, and Mindy Kaling all have birthdays in June. If those three picked June to be born in, it’s gotta be the number one month, right?
At CAMP, we want to wish you the absolute best June ever — so here are some fantastically fun June activities to make that wish come true!
Celebrate Pride Month All Month!
June is Pride month, and you can show your support and join the fun by making Pride crafts, signing up for a Pride Party with crafts and treats at your local CAMP store, taking part in your local Pride Parade, having a movie night with one of these LGBTQ-friendly family movies, or enjoying any of these fantastic family activities for Pride month.
Have an Extra BIG Adventure With Disney’s Mickey & Friends at CAMP!

Make a Meal Out of National Donut Day
Did you know that the first Friday in June is National Donut Day? That’s right, on June 3 this year, all Americans will gather together in reverent awe to pay our respects to the greatest food with a hole in it since Swiss Cheese. Celebrate the mighty donut with a donut party! Try some of these delicious donut recipes to make at home and invite everyone you know!
Hug Your Cat (or Any Cat) on Hug Your Cat Day
June 4 is national Hug Your Cat Day. Don’t worry if you’ve been hugging your cat every day — just be sure to squeeze them extra tight on June 4. Treat yourself to one of these gifts for cat lovers and snuggle up with your furry friend for a classic cat-themed family movie like The Incredible Journey, Puss in Boots, The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets, or Cats.

Make something special for dad at one of CAMP’s Father’s Day crafting parties, or give him a break to do whatever dad stuff dads do when they’re on a break by participating in one of our Father’s Day eve drop-off events. Don’t forget to get him a perfect Father’s Day gift (or make him one!) and celebrate his Dadliness with one of these fantastic Father’s Day family activities. Finish off the perfect Father’s Day with some delicious Father’s Day treats.
