On Friday July 24th, a few hundred people will dust off their #2 pencils, put away their cellphones, and come together from across the country for a magical night of camp Digital Detox goodness: Who's Excited!?!? The Device-Free Camp Inspired Party. We are partnering with The Omni Commons to take over their recently remodeled 1930's Oakland Neighborhood Center for an off-the-grid summer extravaganza. We'll be dancing, singing, and playing in the same place that President Richard Nixon gave speeches in the 60's, Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren addressed the public, and Neil Young & Crazy Horse played their hits. This historic venue will be the home to our biggest party ever!!!
The Omni Collective will become our secret place to explore, play, laugh, dance, create, face-paint, prank, share, typewrite, craft, smile and remember what it means to be (dis)connected. Together we'll celebrate all things analog... so put on our nickname tags and get ready for an evening of no phones, no networking and no work-talk. This will be good... Boardgames, typewriters, friendship bracelets, sock puppets and silly competitions will be aplenty.
WE'RE BASICALLY CREATING ADULT SUMMER CAMP FOR ONE NIGHT, IN THE CITY!!
We've invited some of the best musicians we know from Camp Grounded and the area to perform. The Soul Creatives will be joining us for a secret set (that's actually a fake name - we can't announce who it actually will be, but it will be magical), Whiskerman, Papa Bear and CG All-Stars, Cleopatra Queen of the Jedi (members of the Oakland Famous Tumbleweed Wanderers) and other special guests will be throwing down. We will be making arts 'n crafts while enjoying sing-a-longs... and come jump on stage and join the Gospel Choir.
TALENT SHOW & ABSURDITY GAMES/CONTESTS
We're hosting a special Talent Show and we'll be revisiting some of our Favorite Camp Games & Contests from this summer. Looking to share your talent at the party? Grab your ticket and then sign-up for the talent show here. Those looking to stay grounded can receive some wellness at the MASSAGE LOUNGE by our friends at Rejuv At Work, drink Kombucha at the "Canteen" or enjoy tea at the Pop-Up Tea Lounge Oasis. And we'll be setting up a Giant Fort for those looking to relax, cuddle, play cards or throw down some spin-the-bottle. BRING YOUR FRIENDS!! EVERYONE IS WELCOME!(except robots or kids)
See you in the city,
