Who is Camp Press for?

Camp Press was created for every kind of self-identifying geek that wants to shed the digital world for a few days, and get back to the basics — real people, real conversations, real connection — the real world. Letting the battery run out while spending time talking, laughing, playing, or singing with other geeks around a fire could be the best thing you do for yourself all year.

Relax and leave technology behind

Go on an afternoon hike, play some games, take an afternoon nap, take a canoe out, go on a scavenger hunt, or sit around the campfire with other campers… minimal schedules, lots of fun, incredible memories. Think a cross between summer camp and Burning Man… in Texas.
