From the man who brought you Divine eating human flesh and scratch-and-sniff Odorama (complete with scents of model airplane glue and “flatulence”) comes...summer camp. Yes, cult favorite filmmaker John Waters of Hairspray, Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble fame is putting the camp in summer camp—and, like his movies, this wilderness weekend is for adults only.
This September 22-24, Camp John Waters will descend upon Kent, Connecticut. Scheduled activities include screenings of many of his films, Bloody Mary Bingo, Hairspray karaoke, burlesque lessons and “Scotch & Cigars.” Of course, there are also more traditional camp activities such as sailing, canoeing, arts and crafts, and waterskiing. The mustachioed legend himself will be on hand to perform a one-man show, judge a costume contest and make his die-hard fans’ dreams come true. And alcohol will be available for purchase.
Sadly, the 300 spots have already sold out. We can only hope this initial weekend is just the start of Waters’ new outdoorsy obsession, and we plan on being first in line to score a cabin next year. That gives us just enough time to perfect our Divine-style wig and brush up on our best rendition of “Good Morning Baltimore.”
