To arrive at Blue River Summer Camp, you will need to drive down the World's Bumpiest Road for 60 minutes at 15 mph. Please pack Dramamine. On the up side, you will see some very nice views along the way.
Upon arrival, please check in at the main cabin. If you have not scheduled any excursions, please look for Camp Counselor Felix in the Mess Hall. As all the staff will tell you, he is the only black man on the grounds so you can't miss him. You also can't miss him because he's the charming one that's best friends with every guest at Blue River Summer Camp. Don't worry - in just another day, you too will be sharing a hearty guffaw with your BFF Camp Counselor Felix.
|Camp Counselor Felix making memories with the campers|
The mess hall is open from 7 am - 9 pm. Sometimes we refer to this as the "restaurant," but as it's the only place to eat within 50 miles (remember the hour long drive on the bumpy road), we all recognize that it's actually a mess hall with tablecloths. Say hi and thanks to the chef who has proudly prepared each of your meals.
We have botanical gardens where you can enjoy the lush abundance of the Guanacaste region, a butterfly sanctuary, a (questionable) volcanic mud bath, and four mineral hot springs for you to relax the day away.
If relaxing in all this beauty leaves you antsy, then book an excursion with Camp Counselor Felix. He'll take you on hikes, horseback riding, zip lining - "Felix" is synonymous with "fun" around here, so just let him know what you're looking for.
At night, we'll meet over dinner at the mess hall to chat about what fun things we did at summer camp that day.
"I went zip lining over the trees!"
"I rode a horse for the first time and my butt is raw!"
"I rode a military convoy fitted with car seats up to the mountains for a hike!"
Oh, how we'll laugh as we reminisce about the memories that we just made together hours ago.
And when dinner is done, we'll push aside the tables and cue the dance party. With lights, music, and Counselor Felix leading the way, we dance into the night.
|Alright, this part of the guide is wishful thinking.|
But look how much fun we would have!
We look forward to your stay at Blue River Summer Camp.
