Notice how that phone almost never leaves your hand or pocket and how every meal or sunset looks like an Instagram photo opportunity? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those, you may be due for a digital detox.
An awesome new summer camp aims to help “grown-ups unplug, getaway and be kids again.” Camp Grounded, is a retreat organized by The Digital Detox, in Anderson Valley, California, June 14th-17th .
This four day all inclusive “grown up summer camp” incorporates a nostalgic 1970’s boy scouts camp atmosphere for 200 campers in a drug-and alcohol-free environment, who have a few basic rules to follow: no technology usage, and no work talk .
There is a strict disclaimer on the site, stressing that this is a summer camp and not a conference or networking event to “meet up or make contacts that further your career”, so don’t try and cheat the system!
If you’re not able to make the date for Camp Grounded, The Digital Detox has other regular monthly technology-free retreats, you can check out on their ‘Upcoming Retreats‘ page.
I must say I want to go to this. Get a mind reboot!
I’m 100% with you on this. Although I must say I would be tempted or want to instagram the wilderness lol. Darn technology. #imaddicted
I know, but i think we need to do a mind reboot to make our future pictures that much better…like “different” ideas 🙂 I want to go to this 🙂
