Summer is here and a few years back I read about Adult Summer Camps. I didn’t pay much attention to the Adult Summer Camp craze because I was too busy being, you know, a parent. Besides, I’ve done my fair share of camping, backpacking, and attending summer camps as a young Boy Scout and also as a Boy Scout troop leader. Oh, and don’t forget my trips to various Girl Scout camps with my daughter as well. So you can imagine, I’m not too interested in sleeping a musty old cabin eating bad food at the dining hall as an adult because we now have an Adult Summer Camp opportunities abound.
So, you see, the idea of Adult Summer Camp doesn’t really appeal to me. However, I can see that it is a great idea because it already exists and someone is making some money. However, I believed these “summer camps” are called business conventionsand trade shows and held in places like hotels. Usually you have to attend because your job requires you to. Or you could go for pleasure and attend something like Comicon. You know, a place where you can dress up in a costume just like you do on Halloween. There is nothing wrong with that. It is a hobby and hobbies are something you enjoy doing and I strongly encourage you to attend a convention if you want to. I just don’t understand why someone wants to head out to the woods and go back to summer camp. I’d much rather head to a hotel and enjoy the pool and spa services.
Of course, I’m a fool for not cashing in on the Adult Summer Camp craze. I know a number of experts (aka friends) that could assist me in creating a new summer camp. If someone wants to pay me to attend a summer camp, who am I to stop them?
What courses would I offer? The list is endless!
- Lawn Mowing and Lawn Care
- Complaining & Whining
- House Painting
- Cheap Vacations
- Car Maintenance
- How to Fail
- Drone Flying (and Crashing!)
- Home Beer Brewing (and its sister course Beer Drinking)
- How to Be Depressed in Your Life without Mental Illness
- Boating and Floating
- Camping Basics
- Candle Making
- Wine Drinking
- Scotch and Whisky Drinking
Pretty much whatever you can imagine, we could offer it as a course. I could rent some old summer camp, set up some old army tents, get some retired school cook for my mess hall, and we would have our summer camp up and running in no time. Daily Field trips to the local pub for inspiration would be a must. Hands on experience (like painting my house) with a touch of reality (see my highly regarded course “How to Fail”).
I know you are dying to sign up. For only $1499 per week, this summer camp experience can be yours. You can send me cash anytime. I promise to save your spot for you.
Have a great idea for a course? Want to be a part of a winning team (or you need a job for the summer)? Let me know! Frankly, I need all the help I can get.
