Adult Summer Camp: ‘Everything you did as a kid, plus craft beer!’

adult-summer-campIt’s time to register for Camp Forever Fun, which takes place Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 2-5, 2016 on 120 acres of gorgeous land on Long Lake in Reading, Michigan, near the Ohio and Indiana borders.


“The slogan of my camp is, ‘Everything you loved as a kid, plus craft beer!’ said Joel Paul Reisig, filmmaker and owner of Camp Forever Fun.


Because Camp Forever Fun is located in the Midwest, it was important to Reisig that he partner with a Midwest brewery. One of his favorites is Shorts Brewing Company, owned by Joe and Leah Short.


“I want great beers at camp, and Shorts Brewing Company is one of the best,” said Reisig. His personal favorite is Shorts’ Chocolate Giddyup.


Reisig said that Camp Forever Fun is a place for adults to be kids again.


“We’ll sleep in bunk beds, wake up to the camp bells, eat together in the mess hall, then go outside to play,” said Reisig. “You set your own day; the camp will have all kinds of fun activities for you to pick from such as the high ropes course, archery, giant climbing wall, waterfront, yoga, arts and crafts, sports, giant canoe races, capture the flag, tug of war, and bubble blowing. There’s something for everyone, and we’re all here to have fun!”


At night, camp will become a little more adult, and that’s where Shorts comes in. It’s time to for moonlight beer hikes, s’mores, and theme parties. Not a fan of beer? That’s ok, wine will also be available.


“I’m not interested in running a frat party,” said Reisig. “I’m looking for a group of responsible adults in their 20s and 30s who want to unwind and have one of the best long weekends of their life. Let’s play hard all day, then enjoy a few good beers at night.”


The average age at camp is 23–39, but everyone age 21 and up is welcome. Tickets are $299 for four nights and three days of nonstop fun. Camp Forever Fun is an all-inclusive experience with housing, food, alcohol, activities, new friends, and unlimited memories all included in the price of your ticket. Go here for more info.
