A pizza-themed sleepover camp for adults may sound like pure fantasy but it’s a cheesy reality for lucky campers this weekend in Maple Plain, Minnesota. Pizza Camp is an overnight stay in the wilderness featuring pizza-making classes, pizza-eating, beer-drinking, canoeing, and archery lessons.
The pizza camp is part of a week-long celebration called MPLS Pizza Week that featured pizza parties all over the Twin Cities this past week and culminates in the ultimate Pizza Camp sleepover.
This all-inclusive mini dream vacation, as sponsored by the Minneapolis Pizza Club, takes place Friday, Sept. 16. It only costs campers age 21 and over $125 to grab a slice of the pie.
No kids, plus unlimited pizza surrounded by lush wilderness, with only the small threat of bears being attracted to the deliciousness: Are you green with basil-dotted envy yet?
Last year’s Pizza Camp allowed campers to act as on-site pizza chefs, but this year the camp will create a trifecta of pizza-themed goodness: pizza delivery, pizza snacks, and a build-your-own pizza and toppings bar. The all-you-can-eat pizza dinner is followed by songs around the campfire as performed by the Time Life Pizza Collection (what, Macaulay Culkin and his band couldn’t make it?).
Campers leave Saturday morning after breakfast.
