You can now attend summer camp for adults and the best part, it's close to Rockford.

After seeing the movie, "Meatballs" starring Bill Murray, when I was a kid, I wanted to go to summer camp.

Unfortunately, the closest I ever got was YMCA day camp. Don't get me wrong, it was fun but it was no overnight summer camp.

I pretty much gave up on that dream once I got my driver's license. It's too late for that bucket list item or is it?

According to, there are now summer camps for adults. Best part, there's one close by.

I think it's time to start planning my vacation for this year.
