You’re probably going to work all winter, so you definitely don’t want to fail summer. Well, that’s my rationale for snatching up a spot at Camp Grounded. Put on by the good folks at Digital Detox, Camp Grounded is a summer camp for adults and an escape from the anxieties of modern technology. You leave behind your computer, cell phone and work responsibilities for a weekend of off-the-grid fun. It’s filled with classic camp activities – hiking, crafts, capture the flag, campfires (hell yeah s’mores), except this time sneaking out of your bunk is encouraged and truth or dare could be way wilder than when you were 12 years old. While we all know we should disconnect, what’s killer about this is it forces you to and creates an experience that will probably make you forget all about status updates.
While I don’t know anyone personally that attended last year’s inaugural experiment, friends of friends said it was legit and their trek from Boulder to Anderson Valley in Northern California was totally worth it. Registration for all three sessions has begun, so don’t miss out. I’ll be at session one making far too many references to Camp Anawanna and Salute Your Shorts.
