31 Summer Camp Activities for Adults

Last updated: March 27, 2024

Adult summer camp is WAY more fun than being a kid and going to summer camp.

You get to do all sorts of fun activities and meet a bunch of other interesting adults.

In this post, you’ll learn the best summer camp activities for adults.

Why you should listen to me: My name is Nick Gray. I wrote a book about hosting parties and building your network. I’ve been to more than a thousand events, and this adult summer camp was executed very well. I interviewed the organizers about everything they learned.

Adult Summer Camp Info

An adult summer camp is a recreational program that is designed for adults.

They usually offer activities such as sports, arts, crafts, hiking, swimming, and other outdoor activities that are typically associated with traditional summer camps for children.

Some adult summer camps may also include workshops or classes on topics such as wellness, cooking, or creative writing.

These camps may be overnight or during the day. They can vary in length from a weekend to a week long.

I went to an adult summer camp during the summer of 2022!

Right from the second I showed up, I knew it was going to be fun.

They assigned us our beds when we showed up.

Immediately after we got to play some games and socialize with all the attendees.

We spent the whole time dancing, playing games, shooting archery, kayaking, doing a ropes course, and much more.
