You Can Go to Adult Sleepaway Camp in the Poconos Where Wet Hot American Summer Was Filmed
If you’ve been watching Wet Hot American Summer on Netflix weekend after weekend in an effort to relive your youth, we can do you one better: This September, you can go to adults-only summer camp at Camp Towanda in the Poconos where Wet Hot American Summer was filmed. Adult sleepaway camp, people!
Soul Camp, being held from September 9th through the 13th, is four adults-only days filled with yoga, boot camps, meditation, speaker sessions called “SOUL-versations” (that’s not a joke), water sports, late-night dance parties — and we’re guessing there are a few campfire songs thrown in the mix, too. Oh, and did I mention there’s a resident camp psychic on the staff lineup? Because there is.
And when you’re not busy feeding your soul with all the activities mentioned above, don’t expect to be feasting on sloppy Joes. The sample menu on the website is loaded with items one might find at HipCityVeg: sweet potato falafel, a massaged kale salad, tempeh with special sauce — you get the idea.
As the website says, “At Soul Camp, we reawaken to the power we all had as kids that allowed us to dream bigger, jump higher, sing louder, laugh more. We let go of our adult labels, roles and fears, and rediscover who we really are.” Sounds like the dream, right? The downsides are, one, I’m pretty sure Bradley Cooper won’t be bunking next to you and, two, feeding your soul isn’t cheap: A ticket to the four-day experience will run you $1,500. But hey, with reviews like, “If I had a dollar for everyone at work who said ‘What happened to you?!? You’re glowing!’ I could buy my own camp. Thank you all so much for making me glow!” it just might be worth it.
