The Great Horror Campout is a $231 camp that takes place here in Los Angeles, in which, from 8pm to 8am, participants are constantly harassed by fake monsters and killers that all "have the permission to touch/bag/kidnap/drag you." No word if you're allowed to fight back, but if camp organizes find a bunch of dead monsters in the morning I should at least be across state lines by then. Screw it, I'll live in Vegas.
Camping (and your tent) is included, with just-added, specially marked tents for two people, and for two zones: the fair-game "blue zone" pictured above, and a "yellow zone" that's for people who don't want any interaction with creatures at all...
Instead of a park Downtown, this year they're doing it in the abandoned zoo up at Griffith Park -- also the site of their yearly Haunted Hayride. The location includes abandoned monkey cages, now-still animal pens, and a never-before-explored-by-the-public, super-dark house that the organizers describe as a "house of wax"
If you get too scared you can get the monsters off you by yelling, "I want my mommy!" Of course, if you are caught doing so all your friends will forever judge you. And rightfully so. Haha -- remember that time at scare camp when you couldn't take the guy in the pig mask oinking at you and you had to quit? You are such a sissy. "He whispered 'bacon bits' in my ear and hit me with a sausage link!" Whoa, Jesus! "Yeah, then he--" *jamming fingers in ears* STOP STOP STOP STOP I WANNA SLEEP TONIGHT.
Keep going for several more shots of last year's festivities.
Thanks to PYY, who agrees the best camps are the ones with bonfires and s'mores.
