The World’s Most Fun Conference

Learn the skills and make the connections you need to grow your location independent business and travel lifestyle (all while having a blast at summer camp!).

It’s not just a conference…it’s an experience.

We’re so sorry you missed Camp Indie 2021…

For Our Next Camp Indie

Sign Up and we’ll let you know as soon as we have all the details worked out!

Why Camp Indie is the Most Fun and Most Affordable Conference You’ll Attend:

Unparalleled setting

No drab, stale hotel conference rooms. You’ll be waking up and learning in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains with fresh air in your lungs and nature at your doorstep.

Experiential learning

You won’t be learning by sitting on your butt, taking notes. Instead, you’ll learn by doing – everything from podcasting to paddleboarding.

Organic connections

No speed dating or hokey networking. Instead, you’ll make real, deep connections with fellow campers while kayaking, around a campfire, or at small group workshops.

Small group

We’ve capped Camp Indie at under 200 people so you’ll be able to interact and meet everyone, including speakers, in an intimate and fun setting.

All-inclusive price

At Camp Indie, EVERYTHING – accommodations, food, alcohol, workshops, and activities – is included…and at a fraction of the cost of other conferences.

Everything is included.

Most conferences charge high ticket prices plus make you pay for your hotel, food and entertainment.

At Camp Indie your Accommodations, food, drinks, workshops, and entertainment are all included.

All you need to do is show up, relax, and have a blast enjoying an unforgettable weekend of growth, learning, and connection.

Warning: A weekend of learning coupled with boatloads of fun may lead to altered states of consciousness, personal breakthroughs and new life-long friends. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

Make Incredible Connections

(Because all great relationships start over s’mores…amiright?)

Meeting people at a traditional conference can be stressful and difficult. Say goodbye to drab, windowless conference rooms and awkward networking events.

Making new friends is effortless when you’re playing.

We create a fun, dynamic environment in an unparalleled setting so you can feel comfortable chatting with anybody.

At a special event like this, you never know who you’ll meet and how you might change each other’s lives for the better. Watch out for business partnerships and amazing friendships!

Learn a Bunch of Rad New Skillz

(From podcasting to paddle boarding.)

Our breakthrough workshops, experienced speakers, and actionable community knowledge shares are all designed to help you go to the next level in whatever you want to do: business AND fun stuff.

You’ll also be immersed in a community of out-of-the-box thinkers sure to deliver new insights, perspectives, and experiences.

Oh, and don’t forget our insane list of activities providing plenty of opportunities to try something new or challenge yourself.

Learning has never been this much fun. Speaking of fun…

Have Ridiculous Fun

(A whole summer’s worth…in one weekend.)

We’ve got activities out the wazoo sure to please everyone…

From thrill seekers and outdoor enthusiasts to layabout loungers—all taking place in a gorgeous setting accented by the Connecticut Berkshire Mountains and their surrounding lakes.

Let’s face it, most conference type events are a drag. Drab hotel meeting rooms, stale coffee and awkward social gatherings designed to help you “connect” usually make for a forgettable weekend.

Instead, it’s waaaaaay more fun to build an event packed with insightful speakers, breakthrough workshops and amazing people and move it to summer camp! After all, don’t slip and slides make everything better?

What do our previous attendees love about our in-person LI events?

- Jason Cane -

Being around my kind of people in my kind of place. Nothing strengthens those connections like meeting in real life, especially for someone who over-analyzes messages sent by text or email... Meeting face to face changes up the dynamics in a good way.

- Katelin Gassiott -

The many breakout sessions. Sharing struggles, successes, and goals with small groups/individuals was a great way to get feedback, encouragement, and resources.

- Mike Price -

Each day contained a variety of experiences between social, professional, culinary, and free time. It's a fine needle to thread in trying to hit each of those wickets and still meet expectations. I think the balance was great really and that variety is one special vibe that permeates the experience.

- Isaac Medrano -

All the conversations that were inspired after each workshop, meeting, event, etc. The beauty is in all the extended connection or relating towards each other that bringing us all together creates the space for. Above and beyond expectations were exceeded. Thank you for maximizing the time!

Sept. 17-19, 2021 – Kent, CT

Seriously, you’re still thinking about this?
Here are some FAQ’s that will help:

What does my ticket include?

Your ticket includes everything other than your transportation to and from camp. Once you hit the campground, it’s all inclusive, baby. You won’t have to reach for that wallet, the swipe that card, or bitcoin that bitcoin.

Your ticket includes 2 nights accommodations in rustic-chic cabins, 6 meals (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast/lunch/dinner, and Sunday breakfast/lunch), a snazzy swag bag, all activities—yep, even the crazy ones like wake boarding, ropes course, and water skiing–all workshops/breakout sessions, speakers, and alcohol. We worked hard to eliminate any hidden costs.

So…bring yourself and be ready for a good time.

What are the accommodations like?

The rustic chic cabins are air-conditioned, feature snuggly 10-inch memory foam mattresses, have private bathrooms, and daily housekeeping! All rooms have a view so you can enjoy the gorgeous lakeside vistas and verdant mountains. We have 2-person cabins available. 

What if I want a private cabin with my honey or best buddy?

You can submit your roommate request at checkout, or contact us any time with your request! Otherwise, we will pair you with another camper at check-in.

What food options are available?

We’ve got all your dietary needs covered! When you register, you can select from various dietary options including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. If you have any other food allergies or requirements, please indicate them on your registration form. See the camp’s food allergy statement here.

How do I get to Camp Indie?

Camp Indie is located in Kent, CT, about a 90-minute drive from New York City, 90 minutes from Hartford, CT, or about 3 hours from Boston.

We’ll provide GPS directions for driving via email after you sign up. We encourage carpooling whenever possible!

What if I don’t want to attend workshops/wake board/meditate?

Every single activity on the schedule is optional so you can create the camp experience that you want. Want to spend some time reading or journaling alone? Totally fine. While we highly recommend some activities (like keynote speakers, meals, and the 80s dance party), nothing is mandatory.

But…we’re willing to bet the hardest thing about camp will be trying to fit in everything you want to do.

Who is behind this amazingly awesome, super stupendous, freaking fantastic idea of Camp Indie?

That’d be this gang of troublemakers. You can also learn more about us through our various projects: Location Indie Community, Zero to Travel (Jason) and Extra Pack of Peanuts (Trav).

Are the tickets refundable? What happens if I buy a ticket and can’t go?

Tickets are fully refundable until July 1, 2021.  If you need to bail after that date, you may transfer your ticket to another person who wants to attend, no later than September 10, 2021.  

Will it really be as fun as it sounds?

It’ll be even funner. More fun.

When is this happening?

Camp Indie will begin the evening of September 17 and continue until after lunch on September 19, 2021. Plan to arrive at 5:30 p.m. or later on Friday and depart by 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Can my kid come?

We love our kids…but we also love to get a little break from them. This camp is only for people 21 and up so everyone can relax, decompress, connect, and enjoy the company of other adults….and a beer, if you wish.

Plus, we don’t want them eating all the s’mores!

What should I pack?

Here’s our Camp Indie Packing List:

  • Toiletries (shampoo/conditioner, soaps, toothbrush/paste)
  • Beach towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Mosquito repellent
  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Bathing suit
  • A few changes of clothes
  • Jacket
  • Any medications you might need

We’ll also email you a more detailed list before your arrival.

Do I need to bring my own sheets and towel?

Nope, all linens and towels are provided.

Can I bring my dog/cat/guinea pig?

We love furry friends, but like kids, they aren’t allowed at summer camp (even if they are old enough in dog years).

Is there wifi?


I am an introvert. Will this be tough for me?

You won’t be alone in wanting to be alone sometimes! There is plenty of space to wander off. Camp Indie brings a diverse range of personalities and everyone is welcome. Don’t worry, you’ll love the vibe and fit right in!

Is Camp Indie right for me?

Do you value freedom? Travel? Living your life based on your soul’s desires rather than what society thinks you should do? Then you’re in the right place! At Camp Indie you’ll be surrounded by other creative, positive and inspiring individuals who are bucking the status quo and choosing to embrace an unconventional life. This includes anyone from people currently living, or pursuing, the location independent lifestyle, artists, online creators, 9-5ers looking to escape the cubicle, digital nomads, travelers, or anyone else who is seeking to live life to the fullest, make new friends and go to the next level in whatever it is you want to do next.

How much does it cost?

Tickets are only $849! This includes everything: ALL camp activities and workshops, meals, and drinks (yes, alcohol too) plus 2 nights lodging. It’s a no-brainer! 

We also have a limited-time payment plan option if that works better for you, so don’t delay!  Get your ticket now!

What is NOT included?

Flights and ground transportation to the camp, any personal purchases (souvenirs, etc). COVID test (required if you do not have proof of vaccination).

I STILL have questions. Where can I get answers? We’re here for you.

What happens in the event of a medical emergency?

Should it be deemed necessary for the attendee’s health, Club Getaway/Lifestyle Launch will make every effort to reach out to reach the attendee’s emergency contact. Club Getaway/Lifestyle Launch reserves the right to have attendees hospitalized or to use outside medical, surgical, or dental aid. Expenses will be the responsibility of attendee(s).

What are you doing to reduce risk of COVID infections?

Club Getaway, the venue we will use for Camp Indie, has careful measures in place to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 during your camp experience. In 2020, 10,000 campers went through camp with zero COVID infections traced back to them. Click here to see our COVID Policy. Note that this is an ever-changing landscape, so the plan is subject to change based on the latest recommendations from health authorities!

What happens after I sign up?

You’ll be placed on a mailing list where you’ll receive more important details about Camp Indie. We’ll send important information as it develops, so be sure to stay subscribed to emails from Location Indie so you don’t miss anything important!

Here’s What’s Included:

  • Rustic chic cabin accommodations, with all linens and daily housekeeping
  • All meals, including wine with dinner
  • All drinks at happy hours and parties
  • All on-site activities
  • All entertainment and parties

We’re so glad you found your way to our funky little corner of the internet, welcome!

You might be wondering “Who is behind all this, and how did it start?”


We met at a conference back in 2013, both travel podcasters from Philadelphia working hard to build a sustainable lifestyle that would allow us to do meaningful work, travel more, and own our time.

Failure may have not been an option in our hearts, but the reality was that that figuring out how to actually build a life around the things you love wasn’t (and isn’t) easy.

In fact, we realized that it was damn near impossible to do on your own.

We needed the support we got from each other and our other like-minded, status quo-bucking friends, in order to live our best lives.

Real support, mentorship, and friendship won’t fall out of the sky and into your lap.

It has to come through community and time spent with others who are also open and willing to connect.

So in 2015, we holed up in Ocean City, NJ for 3 days during the dead of winter with one mission: to create a thriving community of like-minded souls who value freedom, exploration, and unconventional living.

That’s when our community Location Indie was born!

Being surrounded by others who understand the challenges that can come with pursuing an unconventional path has changed not only our lives, but the lives of many of our community members.

By far, the most fun part of it all has been meeting incredible people from all over the world in person.

After bearing witness to countless magical moments at meetups around the world, we decided to create Camp Indie!

After all, it’s easy to meet kindred spirits when you are naturally bonding through fun camp activities, life-changing workshops and, of course, hot s’mores fresh outta the campfire!

This event is open to anyone who is ready to have a blast, grow in unexpected ways, learn from others and make real, authentic connections.

Our theme is Lifestyle Freedom: How To Achieve Time, Location and Financial Freedom In A New World. 

So come one, come all and get ready to feel the supportive vibes of your new tribe!

We can’t wait to meet YOU, and for you to meet each other, and hope you’ll join us for an action-packed weekend of pure FUN at Camp Indie 2021!
