Destination Never Grow Up as a Grown Up: Club Getaway in Connecticut

Just when you thought camping was just for kids, you are about to be proven entirely wrong. Swimming, jumping, flying, eating, playing, and mingling is all done adult-style at Club Getaway. Fun fact: Club Getaway is one of the oldest summer camps for adults. In fact, it was founded over four decades ago back in 1976 as a way for professionals in New England to let loose for a weekend.

Located on 300-acres tucked away in the Berkshire Mountains of Kent, Connecticut and overlooking the sparkling blue lake. It is the perfect escape for corporates who are want a quick getaway from the city and feel the nostalgia that comes with camp like the good, ole days. Just a 90 minute drive away from Manhattan, it’s ideal for a weekend trip.

Think of it as an all-inclusive “glamping” trip — cabins that feature air conditioning with heat and memory foam mattresses, and even your most high maintenance friends won’t complain. What makes it even better is that you can make it the experience you want it to be.

Whether you want to lay out by the lake and bake all day or zip line, swim, go on a boat, rock climb, and mountain bike all in a matter of a few hours or even just take advantage of the open bar throughout the course of the weekend, you can customize your itinerary however you want. There are even therapeutic yoga sessions as well as scenic group hikes with a keg at the end (former college frat stars welcome home).

Oh, and don’t even get me started on the food. Think you’ll be hunting for your dinner or eating trail mix during the entire trip? Believe it or not, the food is absolutely phenomenal. Don’t just take my word for it. Go try it out for yourself. With an assortment of too many choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll either leave stuffed more than ever or too busy with all the activities you jam-packed into your schedule.

For breakfast, there is a variety of fruits, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, and even an omelette station! I’m typically a breakfast person but my personal favorite was the succulent salmon and fluffy couscous at lunch. For lunch and dinner, you can expect an extensive salad bar, seafood, steak, and endless desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Amongst all the eating and activities, you’ll undoubtedly meet countless people, make new friends, and create everlasting memories as if you were a kid at camp. Exploring your boundaries and going beyond them is a part of reliving your youth. There’s truly no right or wrong way or experiencing Club Getaway.
