Um, are y’all as excited about Camp Throwback as I am?
You better be, because it’s been a year in the making, and going to be a life-changing, friendship bracelet making, bonfire hair smelling, hangover inducing, bunk bed sleeping, live music listening, one of a kind adult camp experience you simply don’t want to miss.
Now, I’ve tried really hard to anticipate what kinds of questions you might have and answer them below, but if you still have questions or concerns, feel free to leave them in the comments section.
Okay wait, what is Camp Throwback?
It’s a camp, like, for adults.
No seriously, I took the kitschy summer camps my middle class parents sent me away to each June, and recreated it for you, only way awesomer. Archery, arts & crafts, sloppy joes, waterfront, campfires, s’mores, field day, all these things are happening, plus booze. It’s like The Parent Trap meets Wet Hot American Summer.
Who can attend Camp Throwback?
Any adult age 21 and over. This is not a social media retreat or blog event. This is a people event, all are welcome.
Can I bring my significant other?
Sure! Camp Throwback is coed, however, the cabins are not. So, in keeping with the summer camp spirit, boys and girls are in separate bunks, but feel free to make out in the woods.
What if I’m coming alone and nervous about not knowing anyone?
This is the absolute best reason to attend. You’ll have tons of time to meet new people and hangout with your bunk mates. I’m a firm believer that we come as strangers and leave as friends. And you can get some pre-camp introductions out of the way on the Camp Throwback facebook page.
What can I expect to get from Camp Throwback?
You can expect to sleep in a bunk, make tons of friends, play all day, eat, drink and listen to live music at night. No boring sessions, no business cards, just camp. Oh, and also maybe ticks or chiggers. Don’t get totally naked in the woods, y’all.
When is Camp Throwback?
Thursday May 29th- Sunday June 1st, 2014.
Where is Camp, is this taking place at an actual summer camp? What airport should I fly in to?
Camp Throwback 2014 is being held at Camp Graham in Clarksville, Ohio. Clarksville is north of Cincinnati, and is accessible by Dayton International Airport (DAY). Should you require airport transportation, Camp Throwback School Bus service will be available to shuttle you to camp.
Is there wifi or cell service?
There is limited wifi available in the common area. However, camp has excellent 4G cell service for Sprint and Verizon carriers, so feel free to Instagram the crap out of your weekend, worry free!
I’m Ohio born and raised, and I like showing the Midwest all the love I can, so it was important to let my homestate host the inaugural event. Besides, we never get anything fun except soybeans, pop and really good football teams.
What if I don’t drink?
No problem! Water, pop (That’s what it’s called here. Get used to it.) and coffee will be provided!
How can I purchase tickets and much do they cost?
Tickets go on sale through Eventbrite on Tuesday October 22nd, and due to the sheer awesomeness of this event, there are only 100 tickets available. Camp Throwback tickets cost $200 a person, and include a Camp Throwback tee shirt, and all your food and housing from Thursday-Sunday.
What do I need to bring?
You’ll get a detailed camp supply list closer to camp, but expect to bring all the typical summer camp essential (sleeping bag, flashlights, bug spray), and you are also able to BYOB!
I’m a company looking to sponsor or get involved with this event, how can I do that?
