Camp Grounded Rules

Imagine a place where adults completely let go, get really really weird, laugh uncontrollably, sing during meals, and stay up late sharing secrets until they fall asleep in a tipi… only to wake-up a few hours later to a sweatlodge, sunrise paddle-boarding or morning yoga, endless arts ‘n crafts and silly competitions. They dress in funny costumes, dance a lot, perform at the talent show, call each other nicknames and play super super hard. All without the use of drugs or alcohol, without being instagrammed or updating their status online, and without talking about what they do for work. It’s surreal and amazing, and it’s Camp Grounded. We can stay up late, wake-up early, and fill the days with what feels like a full summer… and we still leave feeling incredible, connected and even healthier than when we arrived….

These rules were created by the Grounded community to make this vision a reality… and over the past four years of camp, they sit at the center of what makes our experiences unique and magical. Together, each rule has proven to be the perfect ingredient to help create an environment of authenticity, vulnerageousness and good old fashioned camp fun. No hangovers, no blurred regrets, no glitter…

    Leave Time Behind

    We do not wear watches or worry about strict schedules. Together we’ll rise with the sun and fall asleep under the stars, leaving the world of alarms and clocks behind, enjoying each moment as it is experienced. And no matter where you are, you are always right on time. Sundials however, are encouraged.

    Age Doesn't Matter

    As far as we’re concerned, we are all just big kids and your age doesn’t matter. Especially when it comes to falling in love, taking advice, telling secrets under the stars or sharing a game of capture the flag.

    No Drugs or Alcohol

    We ask that you help create a healthy space for everyone, away from the world of adult distraction (drugs or alcohol). This is a camp created to help you stay grounded and celebrate life.

    No Wearables

    All digital technology is prohibited, including gadgets that tell you how many steps you’ve walked or if you are thirsty. Mindfulness and deep breaths will help us get more in touch sans wearables. Name tags and face paint will be provided.

    No Glow Sticks, Glitter, or Bright Blinky-Flashy Lights

    We’re going to the woods to give our eyes a break. Please help us to limit our visual pollution at night so we can let the stars do the talking. (And glitter is just messy)
