Question: When are we too old for summer camp? It’s not fair. Sleep-away camp was awesome and being an “adult” ruined days of endless summer.
Too true? Then, you’ll love this wine-tipping, DJ-spinning yoga retreat coming to CO this winter.
Say goodbye to your responsibilities because Camp Yoga, a summer camp-styled retreat geared for adults, is taking over Snow Mountain Resort February 24–26. It’s a whirlwind weekend of fitness fun, endless activity, and lasting memories, without all the awkwardness of being a teenager.
But just because you’re older doesn’t mean you lose out on the staples of summer camp. You’ll bunk up in cabins with strangers (soon-to-be friends). You’ll grub together in the mess hall, loading up a tray (3x per day), and plopping it down at the communal table for all campers. And don’t think for one minute there won’t be crafts — sign up for a workshop to make moccasins, craft a candle, or paint ceramics.
At the heart of it, though, Camp Yoga provides some amazing yoga (surprise of the century). But don’t think this is kumbaya around a campfire — the best instructors from all of Colorado will lead you in hip-opening flows, yoga for energy, and even glow yoga under black lights.
There’s. so. much. to. do. It’s impossible to be bored here. From classics like archery, basketball, and swimming to sweat-dripping group workouts with kettlebells or empty kegs (it’s called KegFit — it’s brutal), you’ll actually want to do every activity on the schedule. It helps having the DJ raves, live music, and booze to wind down the night (or turn up…).
And because it’s just 20 minutes from Winter Park, you can imagine the outdoorsy winter fun that can be had. Rent cross-country skis or snowshoes to explore the ranch’s trails by yourself. Want more company? Sign up for a guided fat-tire bike and pedal all over the grounds. Or — gamechanger — claim a musher and a team of new canine friends to zip around on a dog sled all day.
The bad news? You have to leave on the 26th. So make some friendship bracelets and get in one last climb on the rock wall. But at the end of the day, know this: We’re adults, and we can call our new friends to relive some yoga, and drive to put our kettlebell skills to good use at the gym, and drink wine (enough said).
No matter how you cut it, Camp Yoga is an experience that you’ll never forget. So hurry up and register!
