Camp Rahh in Port Orchard seeks to draw out your ‘inner child’

PORT ORCHARD — Daydreaming about those long ago days as a kid singing around the campfire at summer camp?

You don’t need to daydream or be a pre-teen to make the summer camp scene. If you’re an adult feeling a bit nostalgic, Camp Rahh is your dream come true. It is the first all-inclusive and “tech-free” summer camp for adults in the Seattle area, according to co-founder Brian Oh.

And if you live in South Kitsap, you won’t have to trek far to find it since it’s located in Port Orchard.

“Camp Rahh provides an opportunity to let your inner child out, to embrace the nature of play, and remember why it is important,” Oh said. “Camp Rahh is designed to take away your concerns for the weekend and share an opportunity with campers to reflect on how we can live a better life.”

The four-day adult adventure, set for Aug. 24-27, is being advertised by organizers as a “summer experience” that will center on activities, entertainment and cuisine. Programming will include gourmet meals, art and dance classes, yoga, horseback riding, meditation, paintball, water activities, rope courses, archery, rock climbing and even a rodeo.

While the activities harken back to your days and nights at summer camp, the cuisine eschews hot dogs and substitutes strictly uptown adult fare. Executive chef Brian O’Connor of the popular Korean restaurant Bok a Bok Chicken in White Center (also one of the founders of street food favorite Skillet) has devised a custom menu that emphasizes fresh, locally sourced meals that include summertime dishes such as grilled watermelon, baked zita, paella and even a whole roasted pig.

Other noted creative types will teach and entertain campers. Artist Ten Hundred will teach art classes. Kelly Kube of CorePower on Capitol Hill will lead yoga courses. And a lineup of five musicians from the Pacific Northwest will headline the camp’s live performances.

This adult camping experience is priced accordingly: $550, which includes four days of gourmet meals and snacks, cabin lodging, concerts, camp activities, a t-shirt and, as organizers promise, “amazing memories.”

Information is available at or on Camp Rahh’s Facebook page.
