On his 71st birthday, the divinely peculiar John Waters is gifting his fans with a weekend-long opportunity to roast marshmallows and sing camp songs with the Pope of Trash.
The ‘campy getaway’ lets the two meanings of camp bleed into each other and plans to gather reprobates for an adult gathering that promises a filthy twist on all camp favourites and of course, some Waters-curated hedonism.
From ‘Burlesque Lessons’, ‘Bloody Mary Bingo’ and ‘Hairspray Karaoke’ to Waters-centric events ranging from costume contests, film marathons and his famed one man show, Adult Summer Camp Club Getaway gives the full John Waters treatment. A signed copy of his Make Trouble new book is said to be included in the package.
“Our core value is fun, freedom and friends,” said Club Getaway owner David Schreiber for The Baltimore Post. “The freedom aspect is that idea of sort-of breaking the rules, but in a safe environment.”
So if you’re lucky enough to be one of the first 300 campers to book a cabin, you can relive your filthy childhood and indulge in some garbage-loving activities for 499$ and up, with the Pope of Trash as your camp leader. Tickets can be bought right here.
