Healer & Wellness Experts
Connection Camp is a summer camp-style experience for grown-ups, with a focus on fostering connection in all its forms – connection with self, connection with other, connection with nature, connection through play, connection through collaboration.
June 8-11, 2017 Sussex, NJ
Through a variety of conscientiously-curated participatory workshops, individually-focused guided practices, playful camp activities, evening dance parties and campfire gatherings, and on-site health and wellness providers, Connection Camp offers more than a weekend getaway, a rustic retreat, or a chance to meet new people. It’s a radical opportunity for participants to get curious, get playful, get real, and get plugged into a vibrant sense of community.
How many campers will attend Connection Camp?
At our first Connection Camp (2016) we had 72 campers. This year, we can accommodate up to 125 campers. Based on the feedback we’ve received, the success of past events and retreats hosted by The Connection Movement, and past events hosted by our collaborative marketing and promoting partners we are targeting attendance of more than 75.
Who attends Connection Camp?
Our camp community is comprised of high-performing professionals living in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington, DC (and the surrounding areas) who are experiencing high demands professionally and personally. They are predominantly in their late 20’s to 50’s – with the majority falling in the 30’s to 40’s range. They work nine-to-five jobs or are motivated entrepreneurs.
Our community members are already initiated into the self-development arena and are curious to uplevel the experience of adventure, play and recreation in their lives, as well as their overall well-being, by spending more time, energy and money in these areas. Based on last year’s turnout, we expect that demographically, attendees will be about 60% women, 40% men.
We value collaboration.
As a Connection Camp partner or sponsor, you will meet new people, gain exposure, build new relationships, make new connections for future collaborations, and generate revenue selling your service or product.
Connection Camp helps you gain brand recognition with a specific target audience. This focused group consists of innovative thinkers, conscious business entrepreneurs, health & wellness instructors, and community leaders brought together by one underlying common mission: to do good for the greater whole of the planet.
The mission of Connection Camp is to create space to allow people to feel supported and connected with the aim of creating a rippling effect of positive social change. The overall experience of camp will be a sum of all its parts, which includes campers, teachers, volunteers and businesses involved.
By participating as a sponsor, your support will carry on with each member’s experience, empowering each individual with the ability to make a difference by spreading the message of your brand and contributing to one another’s success.
Open to massage therapists, personal trainers, somatic practitioners, energy healers, card readers, nutritionists, coaches, acupuncturists, chiropractors, etc.
The Healing Pavilion will be set up on the camp grounds and will be open during designated hours each day (approximately three-five hours daily) for Healers and Experts to offer complimentary consultations and mini-experiences.
Your sessions will last approximately fifteen to twenty minutes and are an opportunity for attendees to receive gratis one-on-one exposure to various professionals, therapies, healing modalities and wellness practices, as well as sign up for longer (paid) sessions, to take place either at Connection Camp or at your office in the future.
We want you to book paid sessions and grow your client base. We want you to share your gifts and leave people feeling connected to your work. We encourage you to collect email addresses and book follow-up appointments with Campers.
Participating partners in this category have the option to schedule as few or as many paid services on-site as fits their needs, beyond the designated complimentary service hours.
The designated Healing Pavilion hours will be scheduled primarily during unscheduled time and meals will not conflict with workshop programming, so as to direct maximum participant traffic to providers. See a Connection Camp representative for scheduling.
Healers and Experts will be featured in our camp guide so that campers know where and when to find you both at camp and after camp is over.
