Each session accommodates 300 fun loving campers. Campers come as young as 21 and as young at heart as age 65. The average age of Club Getaway campers' is 33. There are special sessions dedicated to certain age groups and interests.

At Club Getaway you can GET OUT AND PLAY.”

This year Club Getaway will be celebrating its 40th year. “In the past 40 years, Club Getaway has engaged over 1.5 million campers in our fun and unique programming.
