“Why I Want to Win a Vacation on a Private Island With my Family”


 Eagle Lodge


Eagle Island, Georgia (February 2014)  Eagle Island, Georgia is a private island that is perfect for families to spend time together without interruption that even children recognize as memorable. With children online helping their families choose vacation destinations more than ever before, Eagle Island owner Cap’t. Andy Hill is inviting children (ages 9-16) to enter a contest and win a 3-night vacation getaway for up to eight family members.


THE CONTEST IS EASY: Write up to 150 words about “Why I want to vacation on a private island with my Family”.


WHY FAMILIES ARE VACATIONING TOGETHER: The moments families spend together on vacation– parents, grandparents, siblings and cousins – are among the most cherished memories they remember and document. And when the whole clan gathers for a shared adventure, those times become forever engraved in the albums and archives of the family story to be retold over and over with smiles & laughter.


Geographically, families live farther away from each other than at any time in history so they are planning ‘Milestone Vacations’ such as a birthday, family reunion or anniversary. The essence of multi-generational travel is to share new experiences together that will grow in meaning and significance with time. The children recognize this equally with their family and often get involved in planning the family activities and meals.
