Summer Camp...For Adults ONLY!

by Kristen Flowers

 

Vacation is a great time to unplug, and one retreat takes that concept literally. Camp Grounded is a four-day summer camp for adults that has a digital detox component- meaning no emails or cell phones and no talking about work.  

 

The camp is in a rural area outside San Francisco and is modeled after the Boy Scout camps of the 1970s, with open-faced cabins, a dining hall and activities like arts and crafts, archery and yoga.  Guests are encouraged to “reconnect with themselves” and to better understand their often unhealthy relationship with technology.  While this is a summer camp for “big kids,” we know what you’re thinking, and no, there are no drugs or alcohol allowed.  Hopefully spending a few days away from your iPhone is relaxing enough.
