John Waters has directed movies including “Female Trouble,” “Cry Baby,” “Cecil B. Demented” and has built a loyal fanbase during his time in the industry. This will be his 4th time returning to Club Getaway, an adult-summer camp nestled in beautiful Kent, CT, for his Annual Camp John Waters.

The 300-acre adult summer camp in the Berkshire Mountains will be transformed into a cinephile’s dreamland for this exclusive weekend and promises to be crazier, funnier and even more star studded than ever before. Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst and Mink Stole will take center stage for the weekend inviting guests to participate alongside other “trashy” campers in fun activities like a John Waters Costume Contest judged by John Waters, dance parties, fireside storytelling, a John Waters Movie Marathon, Hairspray Karaoke, Bloody Mary Bingo, Campfire & S’mores, Scotch & Cigars & more.
