Get Drunk and Capture the Flag at Adult-Only NY Summer Camp
Toasting marshmallows by the fire, shooting arrows in the woods. Those were the best days of your life, but they don't have to be over.
Camp No Counselors is hoping to bring back all the feels for adults and their friends as they spend their summer nights rebuilding their favorite childhood memories—except this time with more alcohol. The camp is located just a couple of hours outside Albany at Southwoods. Activities include friendship bracelet weaving, playing Capture the Flag, tie dying, tube racing, scavenger hunts, ropes courses and more. There's an open bar all weekend, nightly theme parties and, of course, there are s'mores!
The cost is about $475 per camper, which includes lodging for all three nights and all meals and drinks. The average camper is 30 years old and comes prepared with bug spray, Ray Bans and a pack of friends. And just in case you were worried about it being a complete sausagefest, the camp even breaks down the gender ratio of attendees on its website: 57 percent female and 43 percent male.
One camper said in a testimonial that they felt "stripped down to my real self instantly, and any anxiety I had about not knowing people on the trip vanished within moments of being at camp."
The camp also helps strangers become friendsoulmates, according to another camper.
"Within an hour, my friend count had grown by 6 and by dinner on the first night, by 30."
