What is Summer Camp?

Summer Camp is an all-inclusive weekend getaway where WeWork members from around the globe come together to connect, learn, and revel in the outdoors. It's an opportunity for both individuals and companies to take a break from the hustle and draw inspiration from new experiences.

As a camper, you can attend group fitness classes, sports games, networking activities and workshops, classic camp activities like archery and canoeing, amazing musical performances, and an open bar all weekend.

What does a typical day at camp look like?

After breakfast, the sky's the limit. Take a daybreak yoga class, meet new people at a networking activity, join a softball game, test your balance on a stand-up paddle board, or relax on the beach before the sun goes down.

What happens after dinner? You're instantly transported to a festival-style concert on the lawn, where you and your friends can dance and party all night. If dancing isn't your thing, our movie theater will be playing summer classics after dark.

Typical day at camp

Bringing our community together over outdoor activities, music, late-night bonfires, networking workshops, and spontaneous moments makes for one of our favorite weekends of the year. Upon check in, you’ll receive a schedule with the full list of available activities allowing you to create your own unforgettable weekend.

Camp Life

We’ve packed a summer’s worth of activities into one weekend. Do you like DIY arts-and-crafts, roasting s’mores around a bonfire, or simply enjoy lounging in your cabin or tent with friends? We’ve got it all for you!

Entertainment

WeWork Summer Camp features non-stop entertainment throughout the entire weekend. As the sun sets, the daytime activities end and guests gather around the stage to dance the night away under the stars while listening to the hottest bands and DJs.

Team Sports

Volleyball, tennis, soccer, softball, basketball, bubble ball, ping pong—you name it, we’ve got it!

Water Sports

When you're not jumping on one of the two floating trampolines, you can soak up the sun while water skiing, battle tubing, sailing, kayaking, balancing on a stand-up paddle board, or simply relaxing on the beach.

Fitness

Elevate your experience with fellow yogis at a sunrise class or sweat out the toxins at one of our exciting fitness classes.

Camp Activities

Challenge yourself on the ropes course, send a postcard home, or channel your inner Katniss at archery. The possibilities are endless.

Networking

Whether you attend camp solo or with friends, there are endless opportunities to meet new friends. Join us on our Schmooze Cruise around the lake or jump into a speed networking session—there are always chances to connect, and you never know who you’ll meet or be able to collaborate with once you’re back from Camp. Some of the best professional relationships stem from weekends away when the pressure is off!

Challenges

Bring out your inner child with the pie-eating contest, tug-of-war, or capture the flag.

Workshops

Whether you're learning basic outdoor survival skills, absorbing advice from one of our guest speakers, or practicing your bartending skills in a cocktail-making class, our diverse workshops offer a wide range of learning opportunities and serve as a great way to connect with fellow campers!

Surprises

We want to be sure campers are prepared for the weekend, but who knows—there might just be some surprises in store.

What you need to know

Accommodations

How is the camp set up?

Camp is located at an actual children’s summer camp in the Adirondacks of northern New York, USA, and is separated by a lake into two sites: “Girls Camp” and “Boys Camp.” We’ve kept the names of the two campsites, but at WeWork Summer Camp, the two campsites are gender-neutral and both sides of camp have female-only and mixed-sex accommodations. The sites are super close with boat transportation provided between the two.

What’s the difference between Girls Camp and Boys Camp?

In terms of amenities, both sides of camp are the same. Daily activities will be offered on both sides of camp. Breakfast and lunch are served on both sites, but dinner is served at Boys Camp only. We like to eat as a group!

The main concert stage is located on Boys Camp because the fields happen to be larger. Boys Camp tends to be louder because of the stage and after parties, so if you’re looking for nights that are quieter, we recommend choosing accommodations on the Girls Camp.

Sleeping on Girls Camp means that you’ll have to take the last transportation back before 2 AM. The shows end at 11 PM, so you’ll have plenty of time to hang out after around the campfire before heading back to your cabin or tent.

Where will I be sleeping?

Campers will have the option to sleep on a bunk bed in a cabin, on a cot in a three person glamping tent provided by WeWork, or go DIY­style and bring their own tent. Review the ticket types under the “Attend” section for additional information about accommodations.

Meals

Healthy and delicious, we have options that will fit all dietary preferences: vegan, vegetarian, kosher, and gluten-free.

Open bar all weekend! All drinks are on us!

Please note that meals are served during designated meal times. For daytime snacks, visit our HQ tent where you’ll find iced coffee and a variety of snacks.

Sample Breakfast:

Bagels with cream cheese and lox, scrambled eggs, yogurt, fruit salad, homemade banana bread, hard-boiled eggs, hashbrowns, oatmeal, toast

Sample Lunch:

Assorted salads (chicken, egg, tuna), rolls, wraps, breads, salad bar with all the toppings (tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, chickpeas, beets, beans, cheeses, nuts), couscous salad, hummus

Sample Dinner:

BBQ beef brisket, market chicken, smoked portobello mushrooms, sweet potato bourbon mash, roasted seasonal vegetables, collard greens, garden salads

$750

Cot in a Tent

$575

BYOT Pitch a Tent &
I’m in for the Ride

$525

Bunks

Traditional camp bunk houses are located on both Boys Camp and Girls Camp. There are designated female-only or mixed-sex cabins on both sides of camp. The cabins range in size and can accommodate up to 34 people. Showers and bathrooms are located inside the bunk house.

When you purchase your ticket, select the side of camp you’d like to stay on, then select the appropriate single-sex or mixed-sex cabin. Cabins are listed by name with no difference other than designated sex.

If you want to stay in a bunk, we recommend you and your friends purchase your tickets fast as they tend to sell out first!

Tents

If shared cabins with bunk beds aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered! Sign up for a cot in a three­ person canvas tent (the tents are 10’ x 12’ with tarp floors and 74” x 28” camping cots).

Tents are located on the main concert field on the Boys Camp with plenty of lighting and security, but late at night this area can be noisy. If you’re looking for a quieter experience, Girls Camp bunks might be your best option. Please note that does mean that you’ll have to take the ferry at the end of the night. Staffed, air-conditioned bathroom trailers and shower tents will be located a short walk away from the tents.

When you purchase your tent ticket, you’ll start by selecting one of three options: Start a Tent, Join a Tent, or Traveling Solo.

  • To ensure that you’re in the same tent as your friends, you can either “Start a Tent” or “Join a Tent”.
    • Start a tent: if you are inviting your friends to join you in a tent. You’ll need their names and email addresses upon check-out. They will receive an email with instructions inviting them to join you in your tent. These tent spots will be reserved for 24 hours. After that time, the tent spots will be released, so make sure they sign up right away!
    • Join a tent: if your friend has already reserved a tent and you’ve received an email to join in. Be sure to use the unique link in the email that will direct you to the exact tent your friend reserved. You’ll have 24 hours after the tent was reserved before your spot is released.
  • Are you a single traveler in a tent? We’ve designated specific tents for those traveling solo. Be sure to click “Traveling Solo” on the checkout page to bring you to these designated solo tents.

Tents will be sold according to number. If you and your friends wish to stay in the same tent, make sure you purchase tickets in the same tent number (e.g. if you purchase a cot in tent #5, your friends should purchase cots in tent #5). If you have a group that is taking up multiple tents, and you wish to be next to one another, purchase tickets in consecutive tents (e.g. tents number 5, 6, and 7).

Tents are not gender-specific. If you want to be in a single-sex tent, please email summercamp@wework.com prior to purchasing tickets and we will assist you.

BYOT

Want the complete camping experience? Bring your own tent and set up on the Boys Camp. The BYOT area will have designated 10’ x 10’ tent sites, so please make sure your tent fits that space. Individuals who purchase a BYOT ticket are responsible for all their own accommodations (tents, cots, sleeping pads, etc), as well as setting up and breaking down their own tent. Staffed, air-conditioned bathroom trailers and shower tents will be located a short walk away.

There are two ticket options under BYOT:

  • “Pitch a Tent” tickets provide you with a location to set up your own tent (e.g. the tent site).
  • “I’m in for the Ride” tickets are for individuals who are accompanying someone who has a “Pitch a Tent” ticket. There will not be additional tent site spaces available for individuals who have purchased "I'm in for the Ride" tickets.

BYOT tent sites are limited so purchase your tickets soon before they sell out!

In order to purchase this ticket type, you must be accompanying someone who has purchased a “BYOT Pitch A Tent” ticket. Each “BYOT Pitch a Tent” ticket will include a Booking ID number in the confirmation email. When purchasing a “BYOT I’m In For The Ride” ticket, enter the Booking ID to start the transaction.
