Going To Camp Just Isn’t Like It Used To Be.

Summer is here, and you have nothing exciting planned. Your friends are heading to exotic islands and far away places, and you are planning to work all summer, except to see fireworks on the 4th. Really? Come on. Stop sulking and sign up for summer camp. Make friends and try something you have never done before, or make friends doing something you love.

5.  WeWork Summer Camp

But, maybe a weekend at WeWork is just what you need to unlock the creative parts of your brain. WeWork is a place for entrepreneurs to rent space to work and connect, and WeWork offers its members a chance to go to camp. According to WeWork, their philosophy is grounded in the belief that coming together creates a product or impact that is greater than it would be from individual contributors.

Meeting people with diverse interests and experiences opens our minds and sets us on the path to becoming who we want to be. So, bringing people together in the beautiful Adirondacks for some recharging and fun seems like a great way to accomplish that goal.

WeWork Summer Camp sprawls across two children’s camps with the sites being separated by a lake. Individuals and companies are welcome. You travel by boat from one site to the other.

This is a weekend-long adventure designed to give space and time for fitness, networking, camp fun, a music festival all with an open bar. Imagine, after a hard day of archery, yoga, swimming contests, and making new friends you enjoy great music and then top it all off with a bonfire and snacks.

Forget the whole work eighteen hours a day thing and relax. Work hard, play hard. Sounds so fun! And let’s face it, you never know where a conversation can lead, who you might meet and what piece of the puzzle they may help you with. Be open to the experience of sleeping in a bunk bed or tent, and try camp. Great results may be your reward.

It’s only for a weekend, and this place is like Woodstock for entrepreneurs. How can you not join in?
