Summer camp isn’t just for kids anymore. At The Standard Spa, Miami Beach’s summer camp for adults, you can make friendship bracelets, take group fitness classes, and lean into nostalgic sleepaway activities—this time around, there’s just a little more booze involved.

The resort is bringing back Camp Standard from August 24-27, hosted by The Standard’s very own expert camp counselors, for the first time since 2016. Which means you can schedule a staycation or head down to Miami for summer camp like you’ve never seen it before.

With the purchase of the Camp Standard package—which is open to individuals or double occupancy guests—visitors will bunk up for three nights in luxurious guest rooms at the hotel on secluded Belle Isle tucked away in Biscayne Bay.

Aside from taking advantage of the hotel’s amenities like a pool and outdoor soaking tubs, guests will be able to join in on a range of workshops and activities and receive a food and beverage credit, spa credit, and “Welcome Survival Kit” which includes a Camp Standard t-shirt, hat, tote, patches, and more swag.

Activities throughout the camp include tie-dying, friendship-bracelet making, tarot readings, yoga, dive-in movies at the pool, a cacao ceremony, a natural wine workshop, garden picnics, live music, sound healing sessions, pool parties, and of course, making s’mores.

More and more adults are opting for nostalgic travel experiences, from study abroad reboots to luxury summer camps around the world like Camp Standard. Other hotels and resorts like Southern California’s Terranea Resort and the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos are also hosting a lineup of activities reminiscent of a favorite childhood sleepaway camp (think: archery, kayaking, and coastal guided hikes) this summer, and Camp No Counselors is a growing team hosting retreats across the country.

Whether you want to relive your old sleepaway experience or never got the chance to compete in Color Wars and giggle with bunkmates, you can travel back in time at Camp Standard this summer. It’s all the fun of camp—creating unforgettable summer memories with old and new friends—but with much better food, plenty of wine, and no bunk beds.
