Location

the plunge will take place at our facility in ahwahnee, california. the camp is nestled at the base of the sierra foothills, just a half hour from the south gate to yosemite. we have a private, 1300 acre valley, located just 3 hours east of san francisco and 4 hours north of los angeles.

this is a beautiful area with 8 ponds, 3 creeks, and a swimming pool right next to a 10-person hot tub! there is a huge clubhouse with commercial kitchen, full bar, bathrooms/showers, and an enormous ballroom. we also have an rv park with about 40 spots plus a total of 10 cabins of varying sizes. there are acres and acres of great campsites all over the former golf course. tennis courts, hiking trails, archery, horseshoes, the list goes on and on.

please check out the FAQ for answers to most of your questions.

Sounds

this year’s lineup coming soon!

Amenities

food

fully catered food is included in your ticket price! meals will be served twice a day: brunch at 10am and dinner at 6pm.

there will be options for both vegetarians and vegans. meals will be served buffet-style giving you lots of options for making your own meal.

 

lodging

we have a few different lodging options to pick from. here’s how the pricing works:

everyone buys an entry ticket – this gets you into the event and includes 2 catered meals each day. if you plan to camp in a tent, you’re all set!

in addition to your entry ticket, you have the option of purchasing a cabin, a bed/room in a cabin, or an rv pass (our rv park has full hookups at each spot).

we are hoping to have other lodging options available by the event (additional cabins) but they are not for sale right now because they don’t actually exist yet and we don’t want to over promise on what we can deliver.. when we know more we will offer those lodging options on a first come, first served basis based on when you bought your ticket. so buy early!
