Sports and Outdoor-Activity Camp for a Weekend of Play
There may be a giant water trampoline floating on a mountain lake, rows of rustic log cabins, grills sizzling on the beach, and volleyball and tennis courts, but Club Getaway is no kids' summer camp. Although there are distinct similarities to summer camp, including daily sports and hikes to nightly campfires with s'mores, Club Getaway is a retreat for adults, combining its cabin-friendly setting overlooking a lake in the Berkshire Mountains with grown-up activities such as wine tastings and late-night dance parties. Classic Getaway packages, the club's signature offerings, include all meals, lodging, and unlimited activities and lessons during two- or three-night weekend stays throughout the summer.
A day at Club Getaway lets you choose from an array of outdoor pursuits, from volleyball to trapeze lessons to yoga classes. While some who visit the club learn a few new Pilates or Zumba workouts, others simply like to relax with a book or take a stroll around the lake. Chefs from the Connecticut Culinary Institute serve up hot and cold breakfast buffets and alfresco lunchtime barbecues. Afterwards, the chefs teach guests how to cook a tasty dish during cooking classes, then lead wine tastings that delve into what pairs with certain entrees. Large, eight-person tables are rolled out for dinners, which include wine.
At night, The Boathouse Club nightclub morphs into a full-fledged dance hall, with DJs spinning tunes till the morning. Outside, late-night campfires provide a serene wind-down, complete with calm guitar music and s’mores. When it's time for bed, air-conditioned cabins house up to four guests on twin-size bunks.
