Adults-Only Camp Escape
Listen up you large, hirsute children! Adults-only summer camp is back. Get ready to share uncomfortable glances around the campfire with other not-kids as you imbibe on seasonal microbrews and prepare for the camp nightclub: The Boathouse (where you'll surely fit right in, you motorboatin' son-of-a...). Other activities to sate your refined tastes include wine tasting, kayaking, and a freaking water trampoline (natch).
There're only two chances left to scoop this one! August 30th - Sept. 2nd or October 4th - 6th. Go on, get weird.

Like free things? How about scuba-diving lessons at the pool and unlimited booze? Yeah, it's legit.
