Ready to get digitally detoxed in the redwoods, Al Jazeerah is highlighting detoxing at Camp Navarro and the excellent work of Camp Navarro and Digital Detox accomplished this year allowing individuals to reconnect with nature, themselves and each other.
This is a 45 minute special showing the opportunities we offer at camp. Jump forward to the 24:08 to see the magic.
At Camp Grounded, participants shed both their professional identities and their digital devices to re-explore play, make networking-free connections and step back from their technology and career-driven lives.
But the beauty at camp was that the focus wasn't on Silicon Valley successes or Hollywood stardom, but on serendipitous conversations and getting to know each other's personalities — not job titles.
Color wars. Village communities demarked by wildlife flags. A reveille bugle to wake us every morning. The 325 of us, ranging in ages from 19 to 67, were warned. We were prepped. But it was only when we stepped deep into the cover of 80 acres of cool redwoods in Anderson Valley (three hours north of San Francisco), into a 1970's boy scout camp straight out of Wes Anderson's wildest dream that we realized, finally, where we were.
Camp Navarro is excited to have been featured in the NewYorker this week by author Chris Conlin who attended Camp Grounded. He gave the camp programmers and Camp Navarro rave reviews describing the experience as a celebration of “what it means to be alive.”
