We're planning it again for the third year in a row!
Last year was amazing thanks to all of you who showed up to laugh, play and explore. But, it felt like something was missing to me. I thought about it and figured out that we were missing... an extra day!!!
So YES!!! This year is going to be an extra full day of play and adventure. We're going to open up Thursday night, play all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
This year is certainly going to be bigger and with your help even better than the last two years.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of my old friends from acro-past and making new ones with you.
Cost: Admissions: Three Day Tickets - Thursday night - Sunday $120 after June 15 $145 after July 15- Late Registration Two Day Tickets - Friday Night - Sunday $105 after June 15 $130 after July 15- Late Registration There is no one day option. This event is established to be as inexpensive for all participants as possible and that is reflected in the purchase price. If you are only want to participate for one day you will be required to purchase the two day option. NO EXCEPTIONS
Food: One meal evening of arrival, three meals on each full day and two meals on Sunday vegetarian fare $160 - Three Day Option $120 - Two Day Option
If you choose not to go to the extra expense of the meal option you are entirely responsible for your own food preparation. There are no stores or restaurants in the immediate vicinity to rely on. I suggest that you work in small groups to prepare meals and clean up together. Meals are a great place to chat and get to know people a little better.
Stone House Farms retreat center is located on a beautiful 34 acre partially wooded farm with a private pond, stream, bathhouse and showers as well as a stage and performance area.

Arrive the afternoon of Thursday the 31st or Friday the 1st; set up, jam and meet new people. Checkout time is 4PM on the 3rd. You must check in before 9PM on Thursday or Friday or you will not be admitted to the property until 8AM on following day.
You don’t need to be certified to teach at AcroCamp. What you do need is a passion for whatever it is that you want to share with the community. That said you do need to have something that you want to share with others and you do need to be prepared to offer it in a safe way to ensure that everyone’s safety will be the first priority.
If you’d like to teach please message me and I’ll put you on the roster. If there is enough interest in teaching we will be offering several workshops at various levels during the same time slots.
What do you do? Singing, dancing, spoken word, music, spinning fire… acro maybe?? Whatever it is that you do I’d love to put you on the schedule for Saturday evening and let you show it off. Let me know.
All activities will be held outside. We have very limited indoor spaces available. Please prepare accordingly. We are a rain or shine event.
Join Edible Alchemy's meal plan at Acro Camp!
While exploring and playing, you should be nourished! Be fed well from Edible Alchemy's vegetarian kitchen focusing on raw, vegan, and gluten-free options. There are no nearby restaurants or food options at Stonehouse Farm- other than what you bring and cook yourself over your campstove. While EA may have leftovers to sell a few plates here and there after we've fed those on the meal plan, there is no guarantee. So, for a nourished peace of mind, register yourself!
