Remember of the days of going to summer camp and all the good times you had. Who says you can’t go to camp just cause you’re no longer a kid. Camp No Counselors lets you go back to camp grown-up style, which means it’s a booze filled weekend up at the lake and anything goes.

For those interested, they have summer camps available near Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville and New York City and the weekend camp starts at $475.


Here’s what Time Out has to say about itIf you ever went to summer camp as a kid, you know those precious weeks spent lakeside were some of the most fun of your life. You played in the mud during thunderstorms, learned to sail and shoot an arrow, had a boyfriend you held hands with for three days before you switched to another one and sang songs you still remember by the campfire. 

Now you’re an adult and your life is all work and emails and commuting. And booze, which is a good addition. But Camp No Counselors wants to get that summer camp feeling back in your life. You and your friends can take a long weekend to the woods of Albany to travel back in time, with water sports, color wars, a talent show and other favorite parts of your childhood camp memories—but with the added benefits of dance parties with live DJs, co-ed cabins and alcohol at every turn. It’s gonna get weird. 

This summer’s New York camp weekends are at Southwoods camp on May 28-31 and Sept 4-7, and you can register now. It’s $475 for an all-inclusive weekend including lodging, roundtrip transportation, all meals (and plenty of s’mores), open bar all weekend, nightly theme parties, water slides, and all the fun camp activities (rope courses, water skiing, capture the flag, oh my!) you can handle. Think of the friendship bracelets! And don’t worry, no scary murderers allowed—everyone is vetted through the online application process.



Activities include: Archery / Arts ‘N Crafts / Basketball / Capture the Flag / Color War / Dodgeball / Friendship Bracelet Weaving / Nature Hikes / Paddle Boarding / Ping Pong / Relay Races / Ropes Courses / Sailing / Scavenger Hunts / Slip ‘N Slide / Softball / Sunbathing / Swimming / Talent Show / The Blob / Tie Dying / Tubing / Tug of War / Ultimate Frisbee / Wakeboarding / Water Skiing / Water Slides / Water Trampoline / Zip Line and much more!

And the best part: OPEN BAR ALL WEEKEND, which means at breakfast you will find a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar, our lunches have beer and wine available to wet your appetite and from dinner until the wee hours of the morning, we have a full service bar. While we do have the ‘open bar’ available throughout the course of the weekend.

Bottom Line

I loved going to summer camp growing up, and this looks awesome!
