Adventure, exploration, and summer love—many grownups are reconnecting with their inner child at adult summer camps which are popping up all over the country. Whether you want to rediscover your passion for the clarinet at band camp or meet active singles at sports camp, odds are there’s a program to entertain and challenge you this summer.
Here are a few adult camps worth mentioning:
This campus-based program gives people of all ages the opportunity to learn about archeology and ancient civilizations. Located in southwestern Colorado, the Crow Canyon site is known for its dense concentration of Pueblo Indian artifacts. Participants work side by side with archaeologists, unearthing treasures in the field and studying them back in the lab.
Adult camps, such as the Archaeology Research Program and the Archaeology Lab Program are held in one-week increments and— for those seeking an adventurous family camp experience—Crow Canyon offers Family Archeology Weeks.
Whether you’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, crave a rejuvenating getaway, or want to challenge yourself to learn a new skill, Las Olas Surf Safaris for Women in Mexico is an unforgettable summer camp experience. With an all-female staff of experienced surf instructors, Las Olas introduces women to surfing in a no-pressure and nonjudgmental environment. The benefits of surfing go beyond a great workout, and Los Olas strives to give women inner strength, awareness, and inspiration—all of which remain with campers long after they return home. Their motto says it all, “We make girls out of women.”
The Singles Travel Service offers a unique opportunity for active singles to journey back to their youthful sleepaway camp days, and—hopefully—find someone special to share a romantic, lake-side first kiss with. Adult Summer Camp is located in the Berkshire Mountains of Connecticut on more than 300 lakefront acres. Campers enjoy a wide array of activities, including water sports, mountain biking, trapeze lessons, yoga, and massage, just to name a few. Unlike your childhood sleepaway camp days, this camp offers more adult-oriented fun, such as happy hour, cocktails by the lake, and a camp dance club. Sessions are typically held over three-day weekends and include a boomers-only weekend.
