If you are an adult…
An adult who misses those awesome summers that you spent at camp as a child then we have the perfect spot for you to spend your next summer vacation. Camp Grounded is an adult summer camp that exists to provide pure, unadulterated fun for grown-ups.
This unique summer camp experience has several locations throughout the United States. Sessions start as early as the end of May in Northern California and extend to early October in Texas. The camp includes all of the things you would expect to find at a typical summer camp. When you attend one of the sessions you can expect healthy gourmet meals, live music, a multitude of playshops (workshops), yoga, arts and crafts, dance classes, sing-a-longs, rock climbing, swimming, daily meditation sessions, baking classes, sailing, and at the end of the day, stargazing opportunities.
Lodging opportunities range from a village-like cabin setting to sleeping under the stars in sleeping bags and tents. There are gender specific assignments made for those who want to sleep in the cabins and tent camping spots available for those who seek to bunk with a member of the opposite sex (make note, however, that you are expected to provide your own tent for this option).
One thing that the camp wants to make clear to those who are attending is that this is not intended to be a networking opportunity or a place to make business connections.
There will be no business meet-up opportunities, no cocktail hours, or reception wherein campers sit around and discuss their day-to-day lives. It is not forbidden to do so, but it is strongly suggested that business not be discussed at all over the duration of the camp. In fact, nicknames are preferred to actual names and those who run the camp have made a great effort to create a space where people can just be “humans being,” rather than “humans doing.”
The camp has been designed for adults from the ages of 18-80. It is meant to be like the camp that you may or may not have attended as a child. The focus is on experience and playing, not on who campers are in the world outside of the camp. It is designed to be a true break from the “real world.” The time spent here is meant to have “No Screens. No Filters. No Big Data. No Agenda. No B.S.” It is an opportunity for good old-fashioned camp fun.
