Summer Camp: Camp Grounded

A summer camp exclusively for adults, Camp Grounded is a unique and off-grid experience that has been designed to provide respite from the daily grind.

Created by Digital Detox, an Oakland-based organization that promotes well-being and balance for modern day urbanites, Camp Grounded will ask guests to “trade in computers, cell phones, Instagrams, clocks, schedules and work-jargon for a weekend of pure unadulterated fun.”

Situated in one of the many Redwood parks along the Californian coast, guests will inhabit a real 1970s boy scout camp for four days in June, somewhat reminiscent of the camp featured in Wes Anderson’s latest release Moonrise Kingdom, as shown above. In our Megatrends forecast for S/S 14, Real, we explore and take inspiration from the nostalgic exuberance of the 1970s.

Camp Grounded is limited to 200 spaces for its inaugural edition and will take place in Anderson Valley, California from June 14th-17th this summer.  Click here to register your place. – Samantha Fox
