About the Event

Did you ever go to sleepaway summer camp? You'd get on a school bus, drive to a cabin in the woods, armed only with your sleeping bag and a canteen. Well, if you didn't, now you can! We're going to unplug (slightly) and hang out at Camp Dark Waters in Medford, NJ! First 30 folks that submit payment can attend.

For the adventurous, there's archery, relay races, and riding horses! For those looking for low-key experiences, there's yoga, arts & crafts, hiking, napping, and playing games. Perhaps we will have a talent show for the truly brave at heart! We are going to have a good time, and we're only 40 minutes from home! This campout is perfect for individuals aged 21 and older. Couples can join us, but there is no couples housing. EVERYONE will be staying in single-gender cabins on twin-sized bunk beds...don't worry, there is running water & toilets in the shower house.

"Camp Dark Waters, founded in 1928, serves its community of campers and staff by running recreational activities that are fun and serve to nurture the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional life of young people. Based on the Quaker testimonies of Peace, Education, Simplicity, Stewardship, Equality, and Integrity, our diverse community builds new friendships in a “family” atmosphere. We live and play together and learn to appreciate one another in our outdoor camp setting."
