Guests will also be invited to participate in Club Getaway's wide range of experiences like their trapeze, zip line, rock climbing, archery, kayaking, mountain biking, kickball, volleyball plus many other traditional campy options like Bloody Mary Bingo and a Baltimore themed pub hike.

A limited number of cabin and tenting options are still available. The weekend includes all activities and meals (alcohol is available for an additional fee). Each camper will also receive an autographed copy of John's latest book "Make Trouble."

The cult classic, Baltimore-born filmmaker began his Hollywood success with now Broadway classic, Hairspray in 1988. Claiming his playful nicknames "Pope of Trash" and "Prince of Puke," he maintains his image through his filmmaking and his personal presentation. Regarded as a shocking entertainer, John Waters carefully chooses his material and exploits it through a dirty lens.

Club Getaway, located in picturesque Kent, CT serves as a children's camp during the week and a camp for adults on the weekends. It has been the premier destination for sports, fun and entertainment in the Northeast for men and women of all ages for the last 40 years. The 320-acre camp offers activities ranging from ziplining and trapeze, to stand up paddleboarding. Club Getaway's season begins in May and caps off with a fall finale in October.
