Summer Camp for Adults Happening in the Poconos Again This Year
Last year, when we told you guys about the debut of Camp Bonfire — a summer camp for adults in the Poconos, started by Philly-based theatre artist Benjamin Camp and event producer Jacob Winterstein — you all freaked out. Because, the (kind of sad) truth about adulthood is that nothing warrants excitement quite like the chance to behave like a 12-year-old again. So, we can only imagine you’ll be just as giddy as you were last year when we tell you that Camp Bonfire is setting up shop in the Poconos for a second year this summer.
Done squealing with excitement? Okay, here are the details: The adult summer camp, open to anyone over 21, will be held at Lake Owego from Friday, June 10th through Sunday, June 12th. And it really is just summer camp, but for adults. You can expect all sorts of stuff you loved when you were in middle school: games of capture the flag, dodgeball, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, friendship bracelet-making, dance parties, bonfires, s’mores, and more. Then there are a few more adult activities you probably would’ve rolled your eyes at in middle school: yoga, tech-free days, trail running, silent hikes, cloud watching, and so on. Oh! And because you are actually an adult, there’s beer involved come bonfire time.
If you’re thinking, Holy crap, that sounds LOVELY, I’m totally with you.
Registration for the weekend, which gets you six meals (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options available), some drinks, lodging, and all of the activities mentioned above plus more, is $399 before February 29th (if you’re able to snag one of their limited “Up for Breakfast” tickets), then $449 for standard registration. Lake Owego is a little over two hours away from Philly, and you can drive yourself, though parking is limited, or hop on a coach bus from Philly with other campers that will take you there and back.
