WHAT THE HECK IS DUMBER CAMP?
(Short, medium, and Russ versions below)
Come have a fun experience as adults at Dumber Camp summer camp to help kids have a fun experience at summer camp.
Dumber Camp is a weekend-long summer camp event for grown-up kids. The location is pretty with a remote feeling with an on-site pond and ample facilities. All sorts of silly events and activities are planned. Hikes, paddling, live music, events, or just sitting around doing nothing. Breakfast is provided on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as lunch & dinner Saturday.
Event is BYOB, and since a bunk is included in your ticket please stay the night and stay off the roads if you drink. So, bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and optional 80s camp movie attire and get ready to be a Dumber Camper!
It's already sounds good doesn't it? It'll take more words to describe this properly. Grab a cup of water, this may take a while.
For years, my friends and I have been throwing large parties in fun places. We've had formal dinners for fifty at huts by frozen mountain lakes. We've built igloo communities, with ramps to haul generators and equipment via sleds to show movies in the middle of the forest. We've thrown make-your-own ice-cream-sundae parties on rocky mountaintops, and cooked tacos on the trailside. We can put a lot of effort in to have a good time.
As time goes on, we've been looking for opportunities to expand the guest list, decrease the amount of time lugging things up mountains, get more time together, and take things to the next level. I think Dumber Camp is it.
Camp Susan Curtis is a lovely camp. A large field is at the end of the rural road, with a sign for Camp Susan Curtis to the right. The dirt road follows a short distance to the camp office, and the camp below. There is a large dining hall, gymnasium, stage, outdoor bonfire area, pond, local trails, kayaks, bunkhouses, and probably some outbuildings I have forgotten. After a short visit, our foolish group saw some huge potential for good and fun.
Camp Susan Curtis provides a summer camp experience for Maine kids whose financial situations would likely have prohibited it. There is a sadly beautiful tale to its origin and mission, but I'll focus on the happy here: for less than the cost of booking a night at an AMC hut, we can have an entire summer camp for our respectful use for a weekend with meals and some really decent entertainment.
Foodwise, you will be in the able hands of our Dumber Camp chefs.
Start your Dumber Day with breakfast Saturday and Sunday, enjoy a Saturday lunch with a make-your-own sandwich, and be sure to join your fellow campers for our "Last Night of Camp Farewell Dinner" on Saturday night.
We have several bands lined up for the weekend!
We welcome back TIGERMAN WHOA and Ruby Rose Fox!
We welcome The Van Burens and Blind Owl Band to their first Dumber Camp!
Our own Jen Whit will be performing as well as Massive Prophet! WOOT!
There will also be FIREWORKS!
As much as I'd like to invite everyone, there are only 110 bunks available for Dumber Camp.
Dumber Camp, here we come!
