Camping with Asterix is neat because...

We pretty much offer you zip, nada, fuck all. Maybe a monkey hut? MAYBE.

Seriously. And you know what? It's kind of awesome. In return, we expect the same (sans hut). Our camp has grown family style by consolidating our neighbours year to year into our camp. It grew up to an actual theme camp the last few years but this year many of our members won't make it due to not getting tickets, weddings, other bullshit.

We are offering a pad to pop your tent and some experienced folks to help you out if it happens to be your virgin year. To be clear, this is all we are offering along with all the good times that come naturally. This means no kitchen, no showers, no duties. It's pockets of people being self reliant but coming together as a camp. So to all the folks wondering if they should do a theme camp or camp solo? We're basically a hybrid and I wouldn't do it any other way.

PM me or post a reply if this interests you. yada yada radical inclusion... there is still a selection process to weed out problem people such as potential argumentative/violent types. However, we are open to folks of all stripes as long as you're chill.

Some other neat facts about us:

We are a placed camp this year (hoorah)
We run a bar
The bar occasionally is lit on fire
We are several monkey huts joined together to form an asterisk
Age range for the camp is currently 28-60 something

Get back to me, or you know, not. :coffee:

I'd like to just throw on a bit of a disclaimer here to save me the time. Thank you to everyone that has reached out to us. I'm actually quite surprised this is actually drawing interest.

We are party people. We run a bar. We are loud. We drink. We party. We do weird things at all hours of the day. We make fun of each other ruthlessly. However, we are just a bunch of gentle fuckos having a good time and are still respectful and mindful as we do it.

Again, we are just a camping collective but our atmosphere is a bit fast paced. Please keep the inquiries coming!

This is pretty enticing. Do you offer meals, RVs, water, per-decorated bikes, costumes, laundry service, maid service, bed turn-down (with mints on pillow), butler and/or concierge service? I also really enjoy mid afternoon snacks.
Please have your people contact my people.
Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we currently offer none of those services. However, if you would like, we would be amenable to placing an unwrapped junior mint on your pillow during the day. As for laundry or maid service, we have occasionally caught people at our camp licking bicycle seats clean. Please PM me if you are still interested.

Best,
Spag

... and if any of you come up with a good name for this kind of camping setup, please share. I'm curious. A lot of people messaging saying "this is exactly what they are looking for". So why is this not more common?

Too many words. Looking for a single word (it can be made up too).
