Want to Camp Like a Rockstar? How About D-Wade?

While many assume that the thrill of summer camp is just for the middle school set, TicketCity is here to set the record straight. There are many great offerings for the post-collegiate crowd, most of which are a long departure from the standard campfire and s’mores experience. Below you’ll find a collection of some of the best summer camps for adults around.

WARNING: You may find it difficult to go back to the 9-5 life after spending a session at these camps.

For a mere $12,500, campers can attend this four-day-long camp at the Fountainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida. The registration fee includes coaching by Dwyane Wade and special guests, including Eric Spoelstra and Jay Williams. Additionally, each attendee will have their photo taken with Dwyane Wade and will also receive a photo op with D. Wade, Dwyane Wade Fantasy Camp uniforms, breakfast and lunch daily, a camp poster autographed by Dwyane Wade, and luxury accommodations.

2: Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp

Have you been caught jamming out on the air guitar a bit too frequently? Do you still try to rock locks similar to the frontmen of hair bands from the 80’s? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, then Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp may be just the place for you. With options to attend in Woodstock, NY or the Playboy Mansion in Hollywood, CA (Yes…that Playboy Mansion), campers get to receive small group instruction with celebrity musicians, write and record a song with their “band” for the week, perform live on stage as the opener for a real rock show, and interact with celebrity musicians at daily meals. Celebrity counselors include Paul Stanley of KISS, Chris Slade of AC/DC, and Vinny Appice of Black Sabbath. Prices start at $2,999.

3: Adult Space Academy

Turns out dreams of becoming an astronaut don’t have to end with the coming of puberty. For $999, adults can attend a six-day session, choosing either the mission specialist or pilot track. Campers have the opportunity to experience jet-fighter simulators and an underwater astronaut trainer. The camp’s training culminates with a special six-hour-long extended mission. The registration fee includes all meals on premises and dorm style housing in Hunstville, AL. Mission Accomplished.

4: Club Getaway

This last one is for summer camp purists. ClubGetaway is exactly what you remember from the summer camps of your youth with a few new twists. Located on 300-acres in the Berkshire Mountains of Kent, Connecticut, Club Getaway improves upon the standard summer camp experience with amenities such as air-conditioned cabins, daily housekeeping, wine with dinner, and curfew-free nights. Offered activities include wakeboarding, archery, team sports, trapeze, and wine tasting. When the sun starts to set, Club Get Away hosts poker games, flip cup competitions, a night club, and, of course, s’mores around the campfire. Club Getaway offers weekend-long sessions, including all meals and activities, for $389.
