No Sleep: The Great Horror Campout, A $231 Overnight Camp Complete With Monsters And Killers

May 8, 2014


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.

    You guys should check out Gore Camp. ... July 11 on East Coast... actor Tony Moran will be there and it's limited to under 400 tickets And set up differently....

    man, this campout must really suck. The yelp reviews are hilarious, and rip it a new one.

  • Upstate Steve

    $231 to get groped and fondled by a pervert in a mask. It's free anywhere else.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    How many times will you overhear someone ask, "Is it just me or does this tent smell like pee?"

  • Stephen Al-Hakim

    The yelp reviews are pretty funny. Apparently its in a dirt parking lot and the food is all vegan and really gross.

  • Josh

    also you are grouped up with another 2000 people so it is pretty crowded and any chance at being scared goes out of the window lol

  • Bling Nye

    That is horrifying.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    What if a real murder happens during it and people think it is staged?

  • Seth

    Dammit! Now I have to find a new plan.

  • BlackMesaPhD

  • Richelle Howes

  • The Magnificent Newtboy
