If you’re a Houstonian of a certain age, you probably have fond summer memories of weeks spent at YMCA Camp Cullen near Trinity, making terrible lanyards and less-terrible friendship bracelets, singing camp songs, making s’mores, and trying very hard not to fall off a horse.

What you probably don’t have memories of doing there—unless you were a very bad kid—is having a cold one. But that’s exactly what Houstonians of another age—in this case, 21 and older—are invited to do at the upcoming Camp Our Way, a three-night stay at Camp Cullen billed as “Houston’s first-ever adult summer camp,” taking place from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 and running $359 to $429.

Below, a guide to what else has changed.
