Bacon Camp Is Just What You Need This Summer [VIDEO]
If you are a lover of bacon, (and who isn't?) then we have just the thing for you! Camp Bacon is a real live summer camp for pork lovers everywhere, and yes, you still have time to register for this #baconisbeautiful experience! Umm, sounds like heaven to me!
The camp will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan May 30 - June 3, and it's been a summertime tradition since 2010. The 5 day event was the idea of Ari Weinzweig, co founder of Zingerman's Community Businesses in Ann Arbor. He was originally inspired by a field trip to Louisville, Kentucky which was nicknamed 'Camp Bacon' because of the pork related activities. This camp is really more like a food fest, and we love that!
Some of the camp activities include:
- A Bacon film festival, with caramel bacon popcorn served
- A 'Baking with Bacon' class
- A 'Bacon Ball' with live music, and of course, a pig roast
- Speakers and food demonstrations throughout the week
The best part about Camp Bacon is that it serves as a fund raiser for several community organizations, including The Southern Foodways Alliance and the 4H Club of Washtenaw County.
