If you find yourself reminiscing about the summer camp adventures you had as a kid, why not make some new memories at an adult summer camp?

The fun, friendships and adventures of summer camp are no longer experiences exclusive to kids. Many adults are now making new camp memories and reliving some of the best parts of their childhood at adult summer camps.

After all, it’s not fair that kids have all the summer camp fun, right?

Here are some camps that allow — and encourage — adults to relax and act like kids again:

  • Camp Bonfire: There are 35 different activities to enjoy — including archery, canoeing, yoga, tai chi, singalongs, capture the flag, dancing and s’mores — at this adult summer camp, located at Lake Owego Camp in Pennsylvania, about 2.5 hours from Philadelphia and New York City. The three-day, two-night camp starts at $449 a person and includes lodging, meals, snacks, drinks and evening cocktails. “I don’t think there are a lot of spaces for connection and play for adults that don’t infantilize or condescend,” Camp Bonfire co-founder Benjamin Camp told”We aren’t saying you need to pretend to be a child to experience joy. You don’t need to go back. You have that right now.”
  • Camp Grounded: “This is just like the camp you went to as a kid … only designed for adults,” reads the Camp Grounded website. “No screens. No filters. No big data. No agenda. No bulls***. Just good old camp.” If you want — or desperately need — a tech-free weekend, this is the adult camp for you. As soon as campers arrive, they’re required to hand over their phones, tablets, computers and watches to the camp tech crew. With prices starting at roughly $500 and weekend camps planned at different locations across the country, Camp Grounded aims to offer adults a chance to unwind and make new friends and memories without the distraction of technology.
  • Camp No Counselors: This camp’s slogan is “Play like a kid. Party like a grown-up.” The open-bar camp seems to cater to young adults who “work hard, play harder.” “Each camp weekend is filled with land and water sports, arts ‘n crafts activities, epic nightly theme parties, an open bar, gourmet meals and, of course, all of your favorite classic camp activities from Color War to Talent Show,” according to the Camp No Counselors’ website. This hard-partying camp for adults has locations across the nation, with prices starting at about $500.
  • Camp Chief Ouray: Run by the YMCA of the Rockies, this camp offers separate camps for kids, families and active seniors, ages 50 and up. The adult camps, which run Sunday-Thursday, are $345 for non-seniors and $325 for seniors. Activities include archery, fishing, hikes, dancing, rafting, woodcarving and zip-line riding.
