Ages 21+ • $235 / $415
Friday – Sunday, late August
This weekend was created at the request of envious parents. While dropping off their children, they were loathe to leave. They began lobbying for their share of time relaxing under the cool green foliage, watching the sunset from the mountaintop, sleeping to the sound of owls and katydids, waking to birdsong, and trying their hands at the various activities and inactivities.
The population includes adults in their 20s to 80s, and while this program has built a strong following of enthusiastic and congenial attendees, each year brings folks who are entirely new to BCWS. Some are constantly active. Some read in the hammocks, laze by the pond, or relish a solitary stroll.
The staff offer a large selection of workshops and hikes (and will add further options based on suggestions) but the beauty of being a grown-up camper is that all the schedule is optional. The menu is designed to please adult palates, including vegetarian options. Wine and beer are served before and during dinner. Snacks are available throughout the day.
While the same sleeping porches are used for Adult Weekend as for the other programs, many participants choose to bring their own tent for privacy. There are tent platforms and many great tenting sites available.
