Breathe easy, fellow Manhattanites, the warm weather is finally freaking here! And with this weather comes the idea to getaway and get out of the city for some amazing vacations this summer! Speaking of the word “getaway”, there is an amazing vacation spot that is only 90 miles away from The Big Apple in Kent, Connecticut and it is called Club Getaway! This is our travel spotlight for the week and here’s why you need to pack your bags and head east.
Club Getaway is essentially taking your favorite aspects of camp growing up with a super fun adult twist. Everything from socializing and making new friends, water sports, swim, dance, party and so much more gives you the sense of being back at summer camp except downing some Pinot Grigio with your fellow compadres.
The activities at Club Getaway go from dawn till dusk, and you have the opportunity to participate in a bevy of options from Team Sports like Basketball and Volleyball to Adventure Sports like Rock Climbing and Zip Lines.
After a day of tiring activities and new friendships brewing, you will want to experience all the nightlife has to offer with their dinner parties, late night campfires, live music, frozen margaritas and more. All of this while overlooking the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Kent, Connecticut.
Outside of the adults only camps, they have ones designed for families, youth programs and eve weddings! Club Getaway also has a ton of great themed events coming up this summer, beginning this weekend. Take a look at what they have in store, and for more information on tickets and bookings, check out their official site.
