Wasn’t camp the highlight of the summer as a kid? There’s something to be said about getting away from your daily surroundings and being among nature. Camp Rahh brings the summer camp experience to adults for four days in Port Orchard with all the kindling of a typical camp getaway, but with grown-up flair.
Leave your laptop and your cell phone at home and partake in art and dance classes, yoga, horseback riding, meditation, paintball, water activities, rope courses, archery, field games, rock climbing, campfires, a petting zoo, and a rodeo.
Chefs — including Brian O’Connor of Bok a Bok Chicken, who’s returning for his third year — prepare gourmet meals. O’Connor’s menu highlights fresh, locally-sourced meals, including grilled watermelon, baked ziti, paella, and a whole roasted pig.
Ten Hundred, a world-renowned artist, will teach art classes; multiple yoga classes will be led by Seattle yoga teacher Kelly Kube of Corepower Capitol Hill; and hip hop dance will be instructed by Tenoa Spencer. Northwest musicians, including headliner Shy Girls, will play live performances and culminates with three DJ’s mixing live by moonlight.
“Camp Rahh provides an opportunity to let your inner child out, to embrace the nature of play, and remember why it is important,” said co-founder Brian Oh. “Camp Rahh is designed to take away your concerns for the weekend and share an opportunity with campers to reflect on how we can live a better life.”
Camp Rahh is in its third year and runs Aug. 24-27. Tickets are an all-inclusive $550 per person, including round-trip travel from Seattle. Registration is available online.
