  • This camp for adults lets you return to your care-free childhood summer camp days now that you're all grown up.
  • Disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature at Camp Bruchési in Saint-Hyppolite.
  • Adults are invited to swim, kayak, roast marshmallows and relive their childhood camp memories as an adult!

Many of us have fond memories of going to summer camps. Toasting marshmallows on the campfire, playing water sports, learning traditional camp songs and chants... These things were all part of the quintessential camp experience.

Even if you didn't get the chance to do this as a kid, it doesn't mean that it is too late! Los Bruchos, a new adult camp, wants to help grown-ups find their inner child, and at the same time prove that summer camps aren't just for kids.

This "adults-only summer camp" is a new concept by Camp Bruchési, which is located by the Achigan Lake in Saint-Hyppolite. 

For 3 days and 2 nights, Los Bruchos wants adults to put away their phones and enjoy the last weekend of the summer. Kayaking, climbing, archery and a ton of other sports are all available to camp-goers this Labour Day weekend at the camp.

The best part? You won't be forced to follow a strict schedule when it comes to enjoying these activities as you did when you were twelve. Campers will be able to enjoy the outdoors at their leisure, choosing to participate, or not participate, in activities at their whim.

The camp will be held over the Labour Day weekend, which, this year, is from August 31 to September 2. During this long weekend, adults will reconnect with their inner child while enjoying a ton of classic camp activities.

Aside from all of the outdoor sports, campers will also get to eat traditional, home-cooked camp food. And, of course, campfires will be lit each night.

However, drinking and drugs are strictly prohibited, as the camp wants people to enjoy nature the way they would have as children.

Technology is also not allowed at the camp. That includes watches, phones, pagers... if you still have those. Networking, talking about your job, and basically, anything else that could remind you of your responsibilities will also be banned.

The camp costs $425 per person. This includes 7 meals, snacks, and a 2-night stay at the camp.
