John Waters is Hosting What’s Sure To Be the Weirdest Adult Sleepaway Camp Ever

+

John Waters, everybody’s favorite filmmaking weirdo, is apparently hosting a John Waters-themed summer camp this September in Kent, Connecticut. That’s right, for the low, low price of $499 (plus extra for booze), you can enjoy activities like “Bloody Mary bingo,” “Hairspray karaoke,” and even a costume contest judged by the man himself. There will also be burlesque lessons, readings, a one-man show performed by Waters, and presumably a whole lot of other bizarre stuff. Obviously, this will not be a sleepaway camp experience for the faint of heart — nor will it be appropriate for anyone under the age of 18.

While cabins are currently sold out, you can register for the waiting list or go DIY, with a tent and sleeping bags and stuff. The three-day event, which will take place between September 22 and 24, and can accommodate 300 John Waters-loving people. If $499 seems like a lot of money to spend to hang out at a campground with a bunch of people who can (and likely will) recite every line of Pink Flamingoes, consider the fact that every participant will walk away with an autographed copy of Make Trouble, and you’ll probably get to at least meet John Waters — which seems strangely worth it.
