Again this year, Gold Arrow Camp will be participating in the National Day of Unplugging. This day is a movement to encourage people to get a “24-hour respite from technology.”
The National Day of Unplugging encourages people to use 24 hours free from technology to connect with “ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities.” Wow. That sounds an awful lot like camp. We love the idea of unplugging (just for a little bit) at home so that we can reforge the kind of connections there that we forge at camp, where we’re totally free from the burden of technology.
You can join us in celebrating by pledging to #unplug on social media, sharing this news story, or even hosting an unplugged event! You could host an old-fashioned dinner party, spend Saturday the 7th working on puzzles or playing board games. You can even have a sleepover without phones!
If you have plans to unplug, please tag us in those on your social media. We’d love to share your plans (and what you did, after the fact, of course) on our social media!
