Camp Kitigin

Remember what summer camp was like as a kid...

Sun, fun, new friends, and lifelong memories! This screen-free event is perfect for the 21-and-older professional who needs to remember how to play again. Camp weekend is typically offered in September of each year.

Designed for both men and women, campers will be separated into girls and boys cabins - but don't worry, we encourage late-night shenanigans, that's what summer camp is all about!

What exactly is screen-free?

Screen-free is just like what it sounds - that means no smartphones, no tablets, no laptops, no wi-fi. (With exceptions for emergencies or after-dinner family check-ins if needed.) We will instead provide participants with journals and disposable cameras to get back to the way we used to experience recreation!
