March 18-20, 2022 // Weekend Festivities for AutoCamp Guests

Hello, Spring. As the ice begins to crack and the birds awaken, we’re celebrating the beauty of longer, brighter days. Join us at AutoCamp Cape Cod for a weekend of rejuvenation as Winter winds down and we embrace the new season. We’re bringing back some of our most popular hosts and workshops, as well as some cozy, local entertainment. This weekend’s lineup is sure to be engaging and restorative for all. In addition to the exciting programming onsite, AutoCamp Cape Cod offers easy access to the stunning Shining Sea Bikeway and Wood Necks Beach (just to name a few local attractions). There’s endless opportunities to explore, plus the quiet comfort of relaxing by your Suite’s private firepit and roasting s’mores is always there when you need a respite. All programs are complimentary to AutoCamp guests, except for the Fermentation Workshop.

We are thrilled to welcome back Briget Bride, a local fermentation aficionado, as a part of our Spring celebration. Her workshops will overview the gut microbiome, offering tips and tricks on how to eat and feel well. Joining her is our amazing AutoCamp super host Nicole Cormier, who will share the practice of local foraging and leading a healthy, sustainable life. Other wellness opportunities include yoga and movement offerings from our friends at innerglow yoga – classes are designed for all levels, ages, and abilities! This weekend invites you to tune inward and outward, getting grounded as we enter into these warmer, longer Spring days.
