Go back to camp without the counselors this summer

Written by

If you went to summer camp as a kid, you're aware of the joy that comes with a lake, bunk beds and a mediocre buffet. "The Blob" was mankind's greatest invention, bonfires were a piece of cake and you honestly thought that your temporary friendships would last a lifetime. For the exception of counselors and their stupid "rules," everything was groovy at camp.

Now that you're a full-grown person, the rock wall and hormones have been replaced by emails and CTA delays, and Capri Sun juice bags have been replaced by cocktails. Nostalgic Chicagoans are in luck, as Camp No Counselors wants to bring all of those great summertime memories back for a weekend. 

You can head up to "Camp Chi" at Lake Delton, Wisconsin, from June 4–7 this summer to climb, swim and play tug-of-war all while being in a state of utter intoxication. It costs $425 to register for the weekend, which covers lodging, round-trip transportation, food and an open bar throughout your stay. Take the opportunity to relive your childhood memories and promptly replace them with a weekend of shameful, blackout-drunk moments in Wisconsin. 

Check out a typical camp day schedule and try not to tremble with excitement:

9:00 - 10:00am: Breakfast (Eggs, French Toast, Bacon, Fresh fruit bar & yogurt, Toast bar, Cereal, Milk, Orange Juice, Coffee, Tea and of course Mimosas and Bloody Mary's!)
