Adult Summer Camps Can Reawaken Your Inner Child

Life Events

Every year, millions of children attend summer camp. Camp is a special type of community where kids come together to have fun: it can be a wonderful place to make memories and lifelong friends. But why limit the experience to kids? There is a new trend emerging – summer camps for adults.

Designed for those who enjoyed their experience at summer camp, or for those who never got to experience it, adult summer camps are becoming increasingly popular as grown-ups try to relive the summer fun of their youth. For younger adults that have grown up in a more digital environment, it’s a chance to enjoy activities and experiences that they may never have had access to. The camps range from pampered getaways to survival training outings, and they are appearing up all over the country, featuring everything from wine-making to spiritual quests to ballroom dancing.

Here are some of the types of camps available:

  • Camps to recharge your soul. Wake up in a cozy cabin, surrounded by mountains, and participate in activities designed to recharge your spirit. At these type of camps what matters most who you are, not what you do.
     
  • Camps to unplug and connect with others. Visitors unplug, and focus on human connections. Trade in your computer, cell phone, email, schedules, work-jargon for four days of pure, unadulterated off-the-grid camp fun. Enjoy a community where status updates, job titles, etc. are worth little, and individuality, self-expression, community, friendship and memories are what matter.
     
  • Luxury Camping. There are camps that cater to groups of people who are looking for a luxurious outdoor experience. These types of camps are great for those who, while they are nostalgic and miss the thought of summer camp, still want a bit of luxury while they camp.
     
  • Private camping. Want to enjoy the outdoors, but only with a select group? There are camps that allow you to make you stay more private. These camps allow you to experience the outdoors with friends, family or co-workers as you paddle across lakes, hike trails or enjoy a night around a bonfire.


Camps are a great way to break up your regular routine and get you out in the beauty of nature. A quick online search can open you to the possibilities that exist. So with that in mind, what are you waiting for? Summer doesn’t last forever…
