FRIDAY, June 6

Camp Grounded first session begins

Digital Detox …Camp Grounded for grown-ups.

Saturday June 6 until June 9 register here

Once upon a time, when pockets were too tight for cellphones, people would dance through the night raising their fingers like John Travolta. Instead of instagramming the band, their hands would be free to invent the best of dance moves. In fact, my parents met at a Disco – all without the help of a dating app. My dad swiped right with his hand and the rest was history. That’s why this summer we’re taking you back with one of the most epic device-free dance parties. Break out the bell-bottoms and attitude, start picking out your platform shoes and three-piece suits… because this year’s Camp Dance theme is 70’s Soul Funk Disco! How many times will you get the chance to do the hustle in the middle of the redwoods?
When campers aren’t busy breaking it down on the dance floor, they have the opportunity to unleash their inner child and get back to crafting, coloring and creating. From ceramics to crochet, potato printing to painting, we’ve got a fully stocked arts program.

There are still a handful of spots left for Session 2 & 3 of Camp Grounded
