Ever dream of reliving your childhood? Dumb question, yeah, I know – we all have! How nice would it be to abandon the stress of your career, bills and ridiculous grown-up responsibilities? I think we all can agree that would be amazing. The only problem with being a kid again is the fact that as a kid you were a little soft-headed, totally awkward and for Christ’s sake you couldn’t even drink beer!

What if I told you there was a place that you could go to relive your childhood Summer Camp experience, minus the dangers of time travel? Would you want to go? What if I told you this camp offered slip n’ slide, happy hour, whiskey tastings, dance parties, friendship bracelet making, painting, ping pong and a talent show? Huh, do I have your attention now? Thought so…
