Best Places to Unplug: Camp Grounded

Scott Sporleder / Camp Grounded

Camp Grounded, Anderson Valley, CA

Emphasizing wholesome fun and games, this tech-free summer camp for adults is held on the grounds of Camp Navarro, a former Boy Scout camp about three hours north of San Francisco. The summer 2013 inaugural session featured sing-alongs, swimming, archery, color war, and a prom. Campers were asked to hand over phones, tablets, watches, and other technology and partake in a “human search engine” (posting questions on a bulletin board to tap collective knowledge). They wrote letters home on vintage typewriters. There are three sessions planned for June 2014, with a 10 percent “Scout’s Honor” discount still available. campgrounded.org
