A few awesome moments from Camp GLP 2014…

Why you’ve gotta be at Camp GLP

Connection

True story. After last year’s Camp GLP, two women who’d been total strangers turned friends for life ended up on a train back to NYC. There, for the first time, they realized neither had any idea what the other actually “did.” It just never came up. Because that’s what camp is about. It’s a stunning invitation to drop the facade. Let go of the need to posture or position yourself or “network” (ugh).

Camp GLP is about connecting, playing, lighting up on a deeper, more meaningful level. One that bypasses the normal superficial yadda yadda yadda and makes a beeline to the soul. Last year, we had everyone from CEOs to musicians who played Wembley Stadium, world-shaking entrepreneurs to soccer moms and local artisans. And you know what, nobody really knew or cared. Because, in the end, we’re all connected by something bigger. We’re human, and we want to be seen, heard, held and supported just for that. Without it being about what we’ve done, accomplished or who we’ve impressed.

Camp GLP is, more than anything else, about finding your people. Letting your guard down and, maybe for the first time in years (maybe ever), just being you. And knowing that’s enough.

Contribution…

It’s nearly midnight when camper, Barry Solway, takes the talent show stage to share a children’s poem. Minutes later, 250 people rise to scream and whoop and give him a standing ovation. Then comes the call. This must be a book. Campers quickly flock to his side, putting together a team and weeks later, the poem is published as a beautifully illustrated children’s book. This is the magic of Camp GLP.

Beyond soulful connection, we are a community of fierce learners and action-takers. Creators, makers, entrepreneurs, artists and world-changers. Not just in words or dreams, but in deeds. And part of our mission is to not just gather an amazing global family, but immerse you in a powerful accelerated learning and growth experience that elevates your ability to express who you are, build a deeply-aligned vocation and contribute to the world in a powerful way.

So, we bring together a tremendous roster of workshop leaders, speakers, program facilitators and mentors, across a wide spectrum of pursuits, that range from entrepreneurship to personal growth, art and making to movement and music.

Vitality…

There’s this thing that tends to happen when we focus on building a career or a family or a business or body of work…we end up dying inside. Because, in the pursuit of these things, we end up abandoning our health and let our state of mind crumble, figuring “oh, hey, it’s all in the name of something really cool. We’ll come back to these things once we’ve ‘made’ it.”

Huge, HUGE mistake. Your ability to connect and play with amazing people, to build and co-create what you’re here to make will always be profoundly stifled or empowered by how vital you are.

You’ve gotta be ALIVE to breathe life into your life!

That means reconnecting not just with people and purpose, but with your body, your health, your strength and flexibility, your sense of lightness, calm, ease, play, freedom and movement. From workshops to outdoor activities, we’ve got you covered with a beautiful collection of explorations designed to let you reclaim your vitality.

A day in the life of a Camp GLeePer…

sched

Click to see last year’s schedule.
The 2015 camp schedule will be online soon!

Over three and half inspired days, you’ll have the opportunity to try, do, explore, learn, connect, discover, play and so much more (or just kick back and snooze under a tree with a good book!)

Our programming starts around 6am (totally optional), with movement and meditation, then rolls into breakfast and a full day of workshops, gatherings, presentations and events. And,while we always put together a deep roster of fantastic offerings to choose from, we discovered that our GLeePers also love to share. So last year, we created time in the day for pretty much anyone to lead a meetup, workshop or anything else you want.

To get an idea of the overall schedule for each day, just go ahead and click on the clipboard. And, remember, everything is encouraged, but nothing is mandatory. You get to create the experience you need with the people you can’t get enough.

If you’re interested in leading a workshop, apply here.

Morning Keynotes & Evening Jams…

Morning Keynotes & Evening GLP Jam Sessions

What better way to kick off your day than with a series of all-hands morning keynote conversations with Good Life Project founder, Jonathan Fields, that take you deep into the “big lever” good life topics, ones that’ll serve as powerful moments of awakening and actionable ideas.

And, what better way to wrap each day (before your evening celebrations) than with smart and soulful full-camp interviews with leading voices in entrepreneurship, art and vitality?!

Let’s talk lodging and food...

CLICK ON ANY QUESTION TO EXPAND

What are the accommodations/lodging like?
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.)

Should I bring bedding & towels?
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.
Can I request to share a bunk with friends?
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.

Can I stay in a bunk with my husband/wife/girl or boyfriend/partner?
Welllllll, here’s the thing about camp. We’ve got boy’s bunks and a girl’s bunks. 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.

What kind of food will be served?
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.

Directions

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers...

CLICK ON ANY QUESTION TO EXPAND

When should I arrive at Camp GLP?
Camp check in begins on Thursday, August 27th from 3-5pm.
Can I check in late and/or what if I can’t arrive until Friday?
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.
When does Camp GLP end?
Sadly, we have to say our goodbyes on Sunday, August 30th. 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.
What is included in my tuition?
Camp tuition includes lodging, bedding, all activities, workshops, night-time entertainment, meals, camp swag bag and more!
What should I bring to camp?
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.
Can I bring my pet?
Nope, sorry, we love all furry friends, but they can’t come to camp.
Can I bring my grumpy, judgmental, antagonistic, bad attitude with me?
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.
What are the accommodations/lodging like?
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.

Are there showers and toilets in the bunks?
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!
Should I bring bedding & towels?
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.

Welllllll, here’s the thing about camp. We’ve got boy’s bunks and girl’s bunks. Now, boys and girls can play all day, but the bunks’ll remain old-school same sex. 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.

Can I bring my children to camp?
We love kids, but 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.
What kind of food will be served?
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.
Is transportation included?
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.
How do I get to Camp?
Is there Parking?
Yup, on-premise, providing you don’t come on horseback:).
Where is the nearest airport?
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).
Can I bring my computer to Camp?
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).
Is there Wifi?
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!!!
Do you need volunteers?
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 apply here.
What kind of physical condition do I need to be in to participate in activities
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.

What is your policy on alcohol and drugs?
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.
What happens if it rains?
Rain or Shine we will have a ton of activities, dry shelter for everyone to play, learn & have an awesome time!
Can I smoke cigarettes at camp?
Nope. Our host camp tells us they are a smoke-free facility and we’ll be honoring that.
