Ready to Take a Digital Detox Vacation?

Ditch your devices, disconnect from it all and reconnect with each other … 

Yikes – a digital detox camp that allows no technology. None. Zilch. Zippo! Is it still possible to get off this connected bus we’re riding and experience some peace, relaxation and digital freedom? No text buzzes, no calls, no dings for email – no Facebook surfing, no Twitter glances? What an excellent idea!

Camp Unpluggd off the gridImagine a wellness retreat crossed with an off-the-grid rural weekend away from our devices? A retreat built on the disconnection from your devices that allows you the mind space to reconnect with yourself, your partner and your oh-so-connected global family – not simply by turning off electronics, but by re-engaging brains to life’s creative alternatives. 

Arizona’s Camp Unplugg’d is the latest to the digital detox vacation arena, aiming to deliver the opportunity to relax, reconnect, have fun and be a kid again!

Camp Unplugg’d – hot off the presses for GoGirlfriend readers!

Later this August (the 24th – 27th), Arizona celebrates its first Digital Detox Camp with the opening of Camp Unplugg’d – an adult summer camp that encourages the ditching of electronics for an entire weekend.

activities to replace your deviceCamp Unplugg’d’s Founder and CEO, Arian Shirakhoon, had the idea of bringing a “digital detox” camp to Arizona for years and has now propelled the camp into reality. Since creating the website and launching a Facebook Page, Camp Unplugg’d has received a lot of buzz from the business community and young professionals statewide.

“Adults spend over 8 hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices, compared to the average night’s sleep of 8 hours and 21 minutes. That’s more time online than sleeping!” says Arian. With that in mind, Arizona’s new Camp Unplugg’d hope to offer nourishment for your mind, body, and soul with healthy cuisine and fun activities such as: horseback riding, zip lining, archery, yoga and much more.

And what an amazing lineup of activities they offer to re-engage that brain energy:

  • simple activities to rechargeYoga relaxation
  • Art and creative writing
  • Archery, Ziplining, rock climbing, hiking
  • Face painting, tie dying, essential oils
  • Dance parties
  • And much more … just scroll thru the list!

escape off the grid at Camp UnpluggdCamp Unplugg’d is probably what our overstressed inner (tired) child craves – that primitive instinct to be real amongst the connected distractions of this modern world. Try it once and you’ll agree. We love jumping off the grid, escaping civilization for those rare places that have no connectivity signals. It forces us to enjoy the forest AND the trees. Camp Unplugg’d looks like a great oasis of dis-connectivity with a whole lot of great things to do.

Check out Camp Unplugg’d and their plugged-in channels, and if you’re free near Arizona about the last weekend in August, I know there’s a great place to relax and unwind.
