Adult Swim: Camp Camp

June 16, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 9:00 pm

Pack your bug spray & your feather boa for the most sensational Adult Swim mashup ever!

Adult Swim at Madison Children’s Museum honors the public pool tradition of kicking the kids out so adults can have the space to themselves (without the water or need for a swimsuit). This 21-and-up event series offers adults the opportunity to play like a grown-up for the evening—crawling, sliding, crafting, and dancing their way through the museum.

Camp Camp channels the DIY, try-new-things spirit of classic summer camp along with the outrageous and joyful expression of campy style. It’s an evening loaded with crafts, performances, and plenty of chances for everyone (ages 21+) to shine. 

This Adult Swim is presented in partnership with OutReach LGBTQ+ Community Center.
