Adult Summer Camp Offers Fun and Nostalgia

An evening filled with unforgettable fun, adventure and nostalgia awaits visitors during Adult Summer Camp, happening from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, July 12, at the Indiana State Museum.

Adults can leave the children at home and enjoy an exclusive opportunity to unwind with friends and experience the museum after hours, with delicious food, themed cocktails, classic camp activities and more — all inspired by the museum’s new Good Night Forest exhibit.

Party goers can unleash their inner child and compete for bragging rights against their friends in oversized outdoor games like archery, axe throwing, bubble bowling and an obstacle course. Visitors can also make summertime crafts to take home, including tie-dye bandanas and friendship bracelets.

The museum’s galleries will be open for guided after-hours tours, and visitors can immerse themselves in the magic of a summer evening as they explore Good Night Forest to discover Indiana’s nocturnal animals. Plus, attendees can enjoy the beauty of the night sky with a stargazing experience.

Of course, no summer camp experience would be complete without s’mores. The evening’s menu will include a dessert and drink inspired by the indulgent summertime treat, as well as other favorite camp foods, cocktails and other refreshing beverages.

This adults-only program is open to visitors ages 21 and older. Tickets are $45 for non-members, with a 10% discount available for Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites members. Each ticket includes admission to the museum, access to all activities, snacks and one drink ticket. Additional alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase throughout the evening. Space for Adult Summer Camp is limited, and tickets are available now.
