10 Ways To Have More Camp In Your Summer

Summer sucks when you're an adult. You spend most of your time in a freezing office wrapped in a gigantic cardigan, and your weekend exploits just leave you hungover and sunburned. Save your summer before it's too late.

1. Get Crafty!

What do you carry your keys on? A bottle opener? A caribiner? Make a lanyard keychain! Bonus points if you pin it to your sock or shorts while making it.

2. Make Your Own Taco Night!

You could stop by Taco Bell on the way home from work... or you could make your own tacos and put as much cheese and sour cream on them as you want.

3. Play cups in line at Starbucks

Is your Starbucks order taking too long? Start playing cups with your fellow under-caffeinated commuters. Your barista will probably want to kill you, but they probably did already.

4. Always have a buddy.

At camp, you needed a buddy for all water related activities, and while you've probably learned how to swim without water wings by now, a buddy is no less useful for an adult. Text each other to make sure you get home from the bar alright, and pack an extra cookie in your lunch for them.

5. Call your Mom.

No matter how much fun you were having at camp, you only had complaints for your mom by the the time your weekly phone call rolled around. You can still call her and complain! How annoying are your coworkers? How dirty is your roommate? Are your friends having fun without you? Let her know! She might send a care package.

6. Make Some Tie Dye!

Sure, you're a very sophisticated lady, but maybe you spilled some wine down your shirt. Or some pizza sauce. We're not judging. But don't throw that shirt away. Take it as an opportunity to have some diy tie-dye fun.

7. Have an (Embarrassing) Summer Fling.

The best part of camp was sneaking away for clandestine hookups with someone you wouldn't even speak to the rest of the year. Find someone who's only in the city for a summer internship and then never talk to them again after Labor Day.

8. Borrow Your Friends Clothes

At camp, your whole bunk would share clothes and help each other get ready before the big dance. Why did we ever stop doing that?

9. Set Something on Fire

Make a bonfire on the beach, in the backyard or just in a trash can. Feel the power and maturity that comes from finally being able to wield the lighter fluid.

10. Sneak Away For A Nap

The best time to take a nap at camp was after bunk inspection but before lunch. The best time to take a nap as an adult is when you're supposed to be working.
