Kids shouldn’t have all the fun at sleep-away camp. There are learning and getaway opportunities for adults who want to re-live their days roasting marshmallows, learning a new skill and making new and lasting friendships.
A few years ago I packed my bags, and my care packages, and headed off to math camp in Squamish, BC. Yes, you read that right: I went to math camp! I’ll never be known for my math skills but the back-to-school experience was thrilling! The camp was a program by Quest U and this year they are again offering summer camp programs for adults: Renew Your Quest – An Intellectual Summer Retreat for Adults. This year you can learn about a day in the life of your brain or read the novel Don Quixote and talk about its impact on the world of literature.
If you are looking for more fireside options, take a look at what Camp No Counselors has to offer for their weekend retreats, including capture the flag and friendship bracelet weaving! Plus, enjoy some perks you won’t find at your child’s camp like gourmet dining and an open bar. With locations throughout the United States.
Get your fill of outdoor adventure at Canadian Adventure Camp in Thornhill Ontario. After the kids are done for the year, the parent’s move in! You’ll enjoy traditional camp activities, including canoeing and water skiing.
