What is Camp Rahh?
Remember summer camp as a kid? It's like that, only with adults. Think capture the flag, scavenger hunts and camp fire sing-alongs. Except we take it to the next level with all the comforts you want as an adult - with curated concerts, gourmet food, and specialized classes taught by professionals from the Pacific Northwest. Camp Rahh is a weekend to swap out your to-do lists and habitual routines for play, new friends, and incredible memories. Best part? We're technology, drugs, and alcohol free - so you don't need to worry about a hangover or any email killing the vibe.
When is Camp Rahh?
Our next session will be from Thursday, August 24th to Sunday, August 27th! You can RSVP to the facebook event and stay up to date on all of the news by clicking HERE.
Where is Camp Rahh?
For the last two years, it has taken place on Samish Island, WA. However this year, it will be taking place at a new location on a lake in Port Orchard, WA - with more than twice the area, upgraded lodging facilities, new activities (like a ropes course, paintball, and horseback riding), tons animals (including pygmy goats!_! We chose to move locations to create a more comfortable weekend for campers.
Why is it called Camp Rahh?
Well there’s a couple reasons! For starters - Rahh is an emphatic sound for celebration! It’s also a homonym of Raw, a word that we feel means getting back to your natural self.
How much does it cost when I'm there?
Nothing. Your ticket cost includes everything that you will need the weekend. We encourage all campers to leave wallets at home!
How many people will be at Camp Rahh?
250 maximum attendees, staff and counselors.
What's the age group?
Camp Rahh is 21+ - simply because we do want it to be (a PG rated) adult experience. Whether you're 25 or 65, this is a weekend you can enjoy.
Wait but really - no technology? How and Why?
Well first off - you don't need it. When you check in for Camp, you will give us your phone and we will give it back to you when you're back in Seattle. We believe technology can often distract us from the moment we're in, and without it, you're able to more clearly focus on your surroundings, the activities, and the new people you're meeting. If you're worried about leaving your phone for a weekend, we will happily provide testimonials of folks who felt the exact same way last year and are now thankful they had an opportunity to get away from it for a weekend. Trust us! You won’t regret it!
No drugs or alcohol eh? And you still have fun?
We all can have a great night going out, but it's pretty incredible how "high" on life you feel when you're around a huge group of people that are all right there with you. Trust us when we say you really don't need it!
So I smoke cigarettes - is that not allowed?
While cigarettes are technically a drug, we understand that some campers are regular smokers. That being said, they are permitted once you walk of the camp premises (i.e. about 100 yards from the main dining hall). However, if we catch you smoking cigarettes on the campgrounds, we will send you home - this is the policy of the venue. Cigarette use by any camper in a restricted area could be grounds for us to not be able to use the space again.
If I can smoke cigarettes off the premises, can I smoke recreational cannabis?
Please note that though recreational cannabis is legal, it's use (both on the campgrounds and off) is not permitted at all during Camp Rahh Weekend. While we have no judgement of cannabis use, it has effects that can distract people from the experience.
I don't know anyone going and I'm new to the city...is that going to be a problem?
Not at all - we want everyone to meet and get to know one another, you will be surprised how many people will be doing the exact same thing. Camp Rahh is a great way for you to make friends!
What are the sleeping arrangements?
Campers sleep on bunk beds and the cabins are split by gender.
What activities are available?
Yoga, meditation, kayaking, rock climbing, art classes, dance classes, trail running, boxing, cooking classes, swimming, horseback riding, paintball, rope courses, capture the flag, the list goes on and on!
What if you don't want to participate in activities?
That's totally fine! If you want to nap all day, great! If you want to do every activity and not sleep for more than hour each night, that's fine too!
What's the food like?
In a word? BOMB. This is not your normal "camp food”. Our chef is Brian O'Connor has been with us for the past two years and is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. He's the former Head Chef at Skillet Diner in Seattle and current owner of Bok A Bok Chicken, one the hottest new spots in Seattle. We also have several sponsors that will provide snacks and beverages to keep you full and energized all day long. You never have to worry about being hungry.
I have a specific diet (vegan, allergies, etc) Will I be able to eat the food?
Absolutely - whatever your dietary restriction(s), Chef Brian will prepare something for you. You just need to let us know in advance so we can prepare.
What if I have an emergency and my family or friends need to contact me?
You will have a phone number that you can give to them in case of emergency that will be on a staff member at all times. If anything happens, we can be reached and will be able to let you know immediately.
What if there's a medical problem?
We have a nurse that is at Camp that can help with minor health issues. If something progresses or you need more extensive care or emergency care, we will help arrange that.
