You can feel like a kid again at this adult-only summer day camp in Indiana happening in June and July.

I only went to a summer camp once, when I was in high school. It was a Young Life camp in Michigan. There was a lake, zipline, obstacle course, games, and so much fun. Oh, and there was "The Blob", just like they had in the movie "Heavyweights". That's how I always pictured a summer camp to be, minus a crazy camp owner like Tony Perkis.

Perhaps you went to summer camps as a kid, or maybe you always wanted to. Personally, I'd love to experience that fun again. If you're like me and would love to have some fun at camp this summer, you have the opportunity to be a part of an adult-only summer camp in Indiana this year.

16 Indiana Towns with Dirty-Sounding Names

A majority of these towns were given their names in the mid-to-late 1800s as settlers making their way across the country found unclaimed plots of land and decided to make them their own. While I imagine they thought the names they came up with were innocent, and perhaps a tribute to something in their lives, pop culture has warped our minds to the point since then that we can't help but think of something about the town that was never intended by its founders. Take a look at this list. I guarantee there's at least one name that will make you chuckle.
