Camp John Waters, a chance for determined reprobates to make like one of the best, will be returning in summer 2019.
Set for Sept. 13-16 in the Berkshire Mountains of Connecticut, the sleepover camp for adults 21 and older “promises to be dirtier, filthier, raunchier and longer than ever before," organizers said in a press release. And next year, the camp will include as “counselors” actors Ricki Lake and Mink Stole and casting director Pat Moran, all mainstays of the Waters cinematic canon.
The third annual camp will include such activities as a John Waters costume contest (judged by Waters), dance parties, fireside storytelling, a John Waters movie marathon, ‘Hairspray’ karaoke, Bloody Mary Bingo, campfire & s’mores, scotch & cigars and more.
The camp takes place at Club Getaway, on 300 acres in Kent, Conn.
Die-hard fans of the Pope of Trash, those who have attended previous camps, have already been given the chance to book a return visit. Tickets for those looking to let their freak flags fly for the first time, priced at $499-$769 including meals, activities and lodging, go on sale Nov. 19.
