Where's those marshmallows, anyhow?

OK, y'all. I whined about wanting to go to summer camp yesterday, and heard from some of you that you'd like to do the same. I mean, who WOULDN'T want to go someplace where they cook your food and clean up too and tell you when it's time for an activity and where you can hang out or swim or do woodburning and take hikes and drink Kool-Aid and learn songs around a campfire while the night settles in?
.
Exactly.
.
Therefore, I offer you the results of my brief search through the internets for "adult camping" sites, which in no way implies anything naughty. This is good clean fun here, y'all!
.
One in the Sierra Nevadas
.
One in Maine
.
Advertised as “the best in Jewish Camping,” but this goy would like to go up the Hudson valley to this pretty spot.
.
This is the place where we spent a lot of time when I was a kid. Loves me some showboat action!!!
.
When they say family fun, they mean it at
this place in Connecticut. Plus, Cajun Fest! (Disclaimer - this was in our former hometown, and we know the owners. Still, fun!)
.
A
sprinkling and smattering of offerings.
.
Search for yourself. Looks like a good source for "themed" camps.
.
And lastly - veritable GOLD MINE!!! Searchable by region/activity/special needs/age group/gender/ etc. Wow!
.
==========================
.
So now, there's no excuse for not strapping on the day pack, stocking up the smore's fixins, and heading on down the road to a place where you can be a kid again. It's summer, go play a little.
.
Maybe I'll see you there.

Is there a Band Camp for grown-ups? Because I've heard how much fun band camp was for some.....

Kim - band camp for grown ups would be more than most of us could handle. All that ankle-to-knee would cause conniptions, not to mention the drinking. ut still.....it's a thought. Band camp lite, maybe? :>
