Camp Grounded is a summer camp for adults being organized by Digital Detox at Camp Navarro June 14-17. By the disclaimer on the site it sounds like it will really be a summer camp too, not just a hip gathering being marketed as camp.
The disclaimer reads:
Let’s be clear. This is not a conference, a networking event or meet-up opportunity to make contacts that further your career. There will be no cocktail hour or welcoming reception for anyone to explain what they do, play the “we know the same people” game, or try and figure out how they can connect again after they return to the workplace.
Instead, we create an atmosphere for personal freedom, creative thinking, liberation from technology, and a space from the working world where we can all once again be… human.
Friendships at camp are based on real-life connections, and the most important status we’ll update is our happiness.
Based on the response so far, it appears the event is already a hit. Early bird slots are already sold out. For more information, visit www.campgrounded.org.
