Camp check in begins on Thursday, August 27-30 2015 from 3-5pm.
No problemo! We’d love for you to experience the full end-to-end experience. But we also realize some of you may need to sneak in a bit late or leave a bit early. We’ll have a check-in area that is open Thursday until 9pm and Friday until noon. And there’ll be plenty of counselors around to take care of you no matter what. If you know you’re arriving late or leaving early, though, please be sure to let us know, so that we can make sure you’re taken care of.
Sadly, we have to say our goodbyes on Sunday, August 30 2015. All programming ends at noon. Lunch will be served from noon-1:30 pm and all departures should be planned for no later than 2pm.
Camp tuition includes lodging, bedding, all activities, workshops, night-time entertainment, meals, camp swag bag and more!
A “say yes” attitude. A willingness to meet new people, try new things, grow, play and learn. Beyond that, these might also come in handy: Click here to download the Camp Packing List.
Nope, sorry, we love all furry friends, but they can’t come to camp. That said, we may just have a very special guest puppy mascot wandering around for you to get your puppy-loving fix in.
Uhhhhh, nope! Seriously. No, really, seriously. If you are the type of person who loves to pick fights, antagonize, disrespect, sling hate, be rude or judgmental, please stay the heck as far away from Camp GLP as possible. We absolutely reserve the right to throw your butt out, without recourse or refund, and let you fend for yourself among the bears, wolves and the occasional wooly-fanged otter if we deem that you are not respecting the Camp Rules. In fact, you will be required to agree to them when you sign up. And, though we hope it’ll never happen, we reserve the absolute right to make that determination in our own judgment. So, please be cool, be kind, be respectful and open and, if you’re not, do not bother registering.
We’re rocking bunks! But, these are not the bunks of your summer camp youth. They are beautifully simple and clean with showers, bathrooms and you’ll have your own cubby for clothes. How awesome will it be to have a group sleepover? A full bunk will max at 10 friends and we’d totally encourage you to bring a few of yours from home and meet a bunch of new ones. If you’d reeeeeally rather have more private accommodations, we do also have a limited number of private rooms and cabins.
Fact is, though, no matter what you choose, we’re pretty sure that with everything going on all day and well into every evening, you’re not going to be spending a whole lotta time crashed out in your bunk (beyond sleeping your mandatory beauty hours.)
Indeed, the bunks are great and all have multiple, separate showers. We’ve even gone absolutely nuts and paid the extra $1 to have hot water in the showers, lol. Though ya never know, camp is known to have a prank here and there and the old “turn off the hot water while someone’s showering” one is a classic (so be kind to your bunkmates). Oh yeah, there are toilets in the bunks too!
We’ll take care of bedding, but if you’ve got special 8 billion thread count sheets, down mattress covers and other uber-fancy sleep stuff, you’re welcome to bring yours as well. As for towels, we’ll provide 2 standard white ones or you can bring your own.
Yes, of course! In fact, we’d love if you came with every friend you’ve ever met since that unfortunate incident back in 3rd grade with the Crazy Glue and the 5 gallon tub of glitter.
In fact, when you come with at least 3 other friends, you all get a $50 credit toward purchases at the Camp Store. So go rally the gang and bring everyone along.
When you sign up, you’ll see a spot to note who you’re coming with and tell us you’d like to share a bunk.
Welllllll, here’s the thing about camp. We’ve got a boy’s side and a girl’s side. Now, boys and girls can play all day, but the bunks’ll remain old-school boys on one side and girls on the other. Of course, people have been known to sneak out at night and you’re all grown up now, so when it comes to that, you’re on your own.
We do have a limited number of private rooms and cabins, so if you’re interested, please please PLEASE do not wait to book them as we have about 10 times more bunks than private rooms.
We love kids, but at least for this first year, Camp GLP is about creating an oasis, a place to step out of your day-to-day reality and into an immersive experience where you don’t have think about anyone but you. Come and go whenever you want, wake up and go to sleep whenever you want and choose your activities based on nobody else but you.
We’re working with the chefs extraordinaire at our host camp facility to create a great menu that blends super-yummy tricked out grown up versions of traditional camp fare with options for campers who are more “discerning” about what they put into their bodies. So we’ll be sure to have things like vegetarian, vegan fare & gluten-free options for all.
Transportation is on you, but it’s really easy to get to camp by car, train or bus and we will be running a number of shuttles to the nearest train and bus stop on arrival and departure days. You can sign up for those once you’re registered for camp.
Yup, on-premise, providing you don’t come on horseback:).
The best place to fly into is Newark Airport, since it’s on the right side of the Hudson River (click here to view Newark Airport directions)
. JFK and LaGuardia will get you to NYC, but the trip to camp will likely be a solid hour or two longer (click here to view JFK/LaGuardia Airport directions).
No problem if you want to jam here and there on the old keyboard, but there’s going to be so much other stuff to do, we’d love to see you playing with the people in front of you, instead of constantly checking in on what’s happening next (we know that’ll already be happening on the old cell-phone).
We will have a few dedicated Wifi “Addiction Recovery Zones” where you’ll be able to check in on those super important things in the online world that you just can’t live without. You know, like, the latest gluten-free cake episode, updates to your latest podcast or cat videos. But, we’re also “gently” limiting your time in the zone to 20-minutes, because c’mon, this may be your one chance all year to drop into a juicy experience and play with real-life people. So, we’d rather have you playing with us, not LOLCATZ!!!
We’re definitely looking to put together a fabulous family to help in all areas of camp. But, we’re also real selective and we’ve already got a pretty solid crew ready to rock this week. So if you’ve got that awesome camp spirit and you’d love to share it with others and join the Camp GLP Staffer Crew, just go ahead and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well that depends, word on the street from our journaling workshop leader is that you better have some seriously badass forearm muscles or you might get taken out by a raging case of doodle fatigue. Barring that, our guidelines are pretty much “you’re a grown up, use your judgment.”
Everything we offer will be designed to be inclusive. Some activities will offer the ability to exert yourself at various levels, like color war, relay races, softball, kickball, volleyball, yadda yadda athletic stuff. But, it’s more about just having fun, so we’d guide you to participate in what feels appropriate, at the level that is appropriate and lead with respect for your “real” body, not the one you had when you were 18 or before you worked a desk job.
We’re also doing everything we can to make all the activities accessible to all, regardless of physical ability or disability. But, just to make sure we’ve got you covered, if you do have any physical limitations that’d make you question whether you’ll be able to participate in any particular activity, just ask us and we’ll figure it out.
Who needs alcohol when you’re rocking the Camp GLP buzz-wagon! And, Say NO to drugs!
Keep it clean and we’ll all be cool.
Rain or Shine we will have a ton of activities, dry shelter for everyone to play, learn & have an awesome time!
Nope. Our host camp tells us they are a smoke-free facility and we’ll be honoring that.
