CAMP NIGHTMARE


So we are adding a new event to our canon of creepy happenings.  At least for now.  We are going to try this out and see what the response is like.  I am convinced that this is a winner and that it will continue for many years to come.  But we are going to start out small.  Only two dates, July 12th and 13th, we will present CAMP NIGHTMARE! a 15-hour overnight scary camping experience.  The event starts around 5 pm and will include a gourmet campfire dinner, s'mores dessert and breakfast the next day.  You will also be provided tents and facilities, and of course thrills and chills throughout the night. You probably won't sleep much. The venue is a woods about two hours from the city in a town called Lexington.  There is no electricity nor cell reception.  No one will be able to hear you scream!!! That kind of thing.  Anyway, we may also provide charter bus service if enough people sign up for it (of course there will be an additional charge which is why there MAY be charter bus service).

Many, many, many more details on the way, but the there will be scary campfire stories, individual missions into the woods, things that come out when the campfire goes out, and there will only be one "survivor" who will win a big prize. And everyone will get a CAMP NIGHTMARE t-shirt. Just mark down either July 12th or 13th on your calendars.  This will be an amazing summertime thing to do, and I am super excited to create it, build it, and scare the snot out of you at 2 am in the woods.

I'm in and may even be interested in working it...but the pricing seems a bit high. You guys should recalculate the expenses and see if it can be done for a bit cheaper.

Lobster: Where did you see a cost for this? I didn't see anything that had a price.
And besides, I'm sure its well worth the cost...it must take a lot of funding to put an event like this together!

It says five hundred bucks for a tent of two on the right. It was cut off on my browser, but it looks like 300 bucks for a single person...plus the bus and all. I love it, don't get me wrong...but if it could be done for less I think more peeps will come.

@lobster, you definitely have your facts wrong. I did post some preliminary pricing on Facebook, but you should probably go to the FB page to read the post to complete the puzzle. It says $300 for a tent for TWO (essentially $150 per person), and $500 for a tent of 4 (essentially $125 per person). Which when you include the fact that we feed you several meals, provide the tent, and of course the entertainment for 15 hours, is on the low side. Even if we sell out we will barely break even. We are doing that because we think it could be something big in the future, so we are rolling it out small this year to see what we got. Hopefully next year we can do it all summer!
