Summer days on the lake, making s’mores under the stars, and bunking with your best buddies made summer camp a blast when you were a kid, but the fun doesn’t have to stop just because you’re an adult. This summer these camps are holding grown-ups only options.
Camp No Counselors, Multiple U.S. Cities - With dates in 11 cities across the country and Canada, Camp No Counselors is the world’s biggest adult summer camp. For $550 per person, you can spend four days and three nights unplugging and reconnecting with your besties while playing Capture the Flag, making friendship bracelets, and learning to tie-dye. And because you’re grownups, the package includes an open bar.
Weekend of Women, Chicago - This August, ladies can choose-their-own-adventure at Weekend of Women summer camp. Campers will be sorted into “tribes” and can enjoy activities like yoga, canoeing, fishing, and candle making, as well as attend workshops on topics including confidence, social justice, and self-defense. An all-inclusive package is $590.
Arizona Biltmore, Phoenix - Celebrate summer like you did as a kid at the summer block party at the Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort. The summer all-inclusive package starts at $254 per couple per night and includes accommodations and meals, but you don’t even have to be a guest of the pool to get in on the summer camp activities. Snack on boozy snow cones at one of the resorts eight pools, ride the 92-foot water slide, and get in on a game of giant Jenga or croquet.
The Wild Rumpus, Gambier Island, British Columbia - Need to unwind and have some fun? The Wild Rumpus adult summer camp could be just what you need. The all-inclusive package is $375 for three nights in mostly co-ed cabins on this island north of Vancouver and all you’ll need to bring is a sleeping bag and pillow. Spend your days on the zipline, high ropes course, throwing axes and more and each evening has a different theme with a DJ, dancing, and an open bar.
W Chicago City Center - If you don’t want to miss the fun of camping, but would rather not deal with woods and mosquitoes, the W Chicago City Center may be more your style. This hotel hosts a summer no-swim beach party every Saturday in July and a day pass including open bar is just $60. They’ve got campfires, tents, adult coloring books, s’mores, cocktails, and don’t forget the crush-worthy "camp counselors" there to keep an eye on rowdy campers.
