I know what you're thinking, summer camps for adults? A bit weird. But don't judge a book by it's cover. A place with no kids in sight where story hour is replaced with happy hour and sing alongs are replaced with boathouse dance parties, adult summer camps are the perfect opportunity to relive your childhood days and spend a little time enjoying the outdoor activities you used to love so much. From archery and ziplining, to color wars and cabin olympics, it's time to inject some youth back into those bones.
