If you’re not sure where to meet someone — and online dating, getting set up through friends, and winking furiously at strangers during your morning commute isn’t working — there may be a brand new option for you: adult sleepaway camp. Popular dating app Coffee Meets Bagel launched Camp Meets Bagel. And it’s basically the summer camp that you loved or loathed in your childhood. Either way, it’s a chance to go back to camp and do it right.

Going back to your childhood may seem like a weird way to meet, well, an adult human person to date, but it actually makes sense.

So they turned dating into an experience. Coffee Meets Bagel tried the idea of a “dating experience” with a test launch of a Run Date Festival in Hong Kong, and over 1,300 people took part. So they’re off to a great start —  and they should be announcing more CMB Experiences later this year.
