DŌ's summer residency at Chefs Club Counter is camp-themed

Remember those summers you spent upstate, eating sloppy Joes, swimming in the lake and gossiping with friends back in your cabin until the counselors shushed you?

You won’t have to leave the city to relive those simple times this summer.

Edible raw cookie dough purveyor DŌ settles into the pop-up space at Chefs Club Counter in SoHo on Friday with a camp-themed concept that promises to transport visitors back to their outdoorsy childhoods.

Design elements like a tire swing and desserts like The Campfire Sundae evoke a summer tradition at Chefs Club Counter's Camp Cookie DŌ.

“The only thing more exciting than sneaking a big spoonful of freshly made cookie dough is the thought of going to summer camp," DŌ founder and CEO Kristen Tomlan said in a statement. "I wanted to dial up the nostalgia and give you a taste of both."

Camp Cookie DŌ runs at 62 Spring St. through Labor Day, and it's open noon to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

We accept no responsibility if you're gripped by the sudden desire to sleep in a tent there all summer.

Here's what you'll find when you make the trip:

Treats with names like 'The Dirty Worm Cup'

Nothing screams

Nothing screams "camp!" like staff polo shirts and colorful bandana headbands. Thankfully, these "counselors" are serving, not babysitting you.
