Hi, I’m Steve, founder of Nerd Fitness and your head counselor for a weekend that will change your life forever.
If you’re like me, you still vividly remember summer camp as a kid. Every summer, I’d count down the days leading up to camp - marking them off one by one on a calendar that hung in our kitchen.
But you know what I remember most? The friends I made, the late night conversations, the uncontrollable laughs, and the “I got your back” mentality that comes from spending those summer days side-by-side.
I really only spent a few days a year with these people, but at camp, somehow just a few days felt like a few months of friendship. I’m still friends with many of my campmates, even decades later. It was such a powerful connection.
How Camp Nerd Fitness was born…
Last year, as I was reminiscing about my childhood adventures, I started dreaming up some sort of retreat that committed to the same principles of adventure, bonding, and learning that we all enjoyed as kids.
As an adult, I’ve gone to my share of conferences, retreats, and heck - even worked for the Rock The Boat floating music festivals before starting Nerd Fitness.
But none of these events captured quite the same magical feeling we all had as kids.
And though I still had fun at these events, none of these events involved playing video games, talking Game of Thrones, AND deadlifting.
Enough, I thought. Let's make this a reality!
So this September, we're gonna bring back summer camp - for adults! We’re combining our favorite nerdy passions and our commitment to fitness in one event.
It'll be the biggest event in Nerd Fitness history... our first EVER official "Camp Nerd Fitness."
We’re bringing together several hundred passionate, like-minded “Rebels” from around the world for 3 days of fun, friendship, and fitness in the woods of Georgia.
We’re flying in experts from a wide variety of disciplines: strength training, cooking, gymnastics, gaming, parkour, yoga, confidence, martials arts, and much more.
And we’re scheduling all the activities we’ve always dreamed of spending a weekend doing: rock climbing, gaming tournaments, swimming, karaoke, massive human vs. zombie tag game, themed races, and wilderness hikes, and more.
Every camper will have a different experience at Camp NF - you’ll get to “Choose Your Own Adventure” through the dozens of workshops, group sessions, talks, and fun events over the course of the weekend.
We’re asking everyone to come with an open mind and heart - and let us fill it up with new skills, life-long friends, and a spirit of fun and adventure.
This is gonna be a weekend to remember!
5 Reasons YOU Should Come to Camp
#1 -- We’ll cover all your food. That’s right, each of your meals and a wide variety of snacks are going to be handled by us. You’ll eat delicious (and, of course healthy) food from the moment you arrive. This is one weekend you can let someone else worry about food!
#2 -- You’ll get comfortable sleep - and plenty of it. We’re big fans of sleep (for mental AND physical health). Don’t worry - you won’t be sleeping on the ground at this retreat. All your linens, sheets, pillows, and towels will be provided so you can get a solid night’s rest. And we’ll make sure you’re exhausted (in that good way) each day. You’ll sleep like a baby!
#3 -- Receive hands on coaching. Each of our hands-on workshops will have time built in for you to get attention from the leaders of the workshop. Whether you are learning a brand new skill (like yoga, meditation, parkour, or powerlifting) or you’re looking for a few small changes to help you reach the next level, these experts will show you first-hand exactly what to do.
#4 -- Rebels of all ages, shapes, and sizes. We’ll have hundreds of our most passionate rebels from all over the globe coming to Atlanta. Some will be at the very start of their fitness journey - others will be several years into theirs. No matter where you are today, you’ll find others at the same point in your journey. Our activities are intentionally scalable to all ages (16+ for this camp), weights, flexibilities, and strengths. There is no excuse not to come have a blast with us.
#5 -- Friends who will have your back. The best thing about the Nerd Fitness community is the camaraderie of our ridiculous community. This camp is an intimate gathering of our most supportive members. We all need a group of people to support us, lift us up, and believe in our dreams. This isn’t a normal camp - you’ll be hard pressed to find a more uplifting and adventurous group of people in one place like this!
Remember, you just need to get to Atlanta and we’ll provide the rest. We’ll take care of your lodging, ALL your food, and providing a unique group of people you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
We’ll schedule the workshops, talks, and sessions that’ll push your fitness and health to the next level. And we’ll plan the most nerdy, fun combination of events, tournaments, and challenges you’ve ever seen in one weekend.
