Don’t forget a backpack!

ALL YOUR PACKING ESSENTIALS (LIKE DRINK HOLDERS, AND STUFF…)

Sorry wellness retreats, summer camps are the new trending weekend (or weeklong!) destination for adults across the country. We know what you’re thinking… Yes, alcohol is allowed, and yes, phone use is discouraged. If that sounds like a vacation you’re interested in taking, keep reading for our summer camp-inspired packing list that will help you reconnect with your inner kid, relaxing beach or lakeside, assist you in boozing responsibly, and ensure you’re the best accessorized adult around.

For Your Inner Kid

Think arts, crafts, water sliding, hoola hooping, game playing, field day winning, and more. Bring a journal for some old school reflection—and hope you get the top bunk.

Relax, Take It Easy

Physical activity: Optional. Relaxing? Mandatory. Bring your own hammock and spend the afternoon with a book (in your PJs, of course). And whatever you do, don’t forget your beach accessories. Floaties, beach tents, and printed towels are a must.

Eat (And Drink!) Up

Most camps provide food—not the kind you had to stomach growing up. Good food, like really good food… And drink. Be prepared to party with a can cooler, drink holder, and flask.

Well Accessorized

Just because you’re taking a week off to reconnect with your inner child doesn’t mean you can’t pack fun beach accessories and multi-use beauty products. Applying a mask is one of the easiest ways to relax, after all.
