The only thing that elicits more nostalgia than pizza has got to be summer camp. That’s why Encyclopizzeria was ecstatic to discover that, thanks to the Minneapolis Pizza Club, a pizza camp for adults now exists!
the Minneapolis Pizza Club: is an all things pizza community. If you eat pizza, you’re already a member. Pizza club happens every time any of us eat pizza or think about pizza or talk about pizza.
Just like Pizza for Life, the Minneapolis Pizza Club is community orientated and inclusive. The massive pizza community has 446 likes on Facebook and over 200 followers on Twitter. While the Minneapolis Pizza Club doesn’t appear to meet monthly, they do organize pizza related outings like their November 2013 trip to a pizza farm in Stockholm, Wisconsin. The group also connects, reviews pizza, and shares pizza related web-content throughout Twitter and Tumblr using the #mplspizzaclub hashtag.
Vita.mn, “the Twin-Cities going-out guide,” recently interviewed Minneapolis Pizza Club members and Pizza Camp founders, Paige Guggemos and Chris Cloud, about the first ever Pizza Camp, which takes place from September 6th, 2014 to September 7th, 2014.
Now, calm down Chicagoans. Don’t get too excited to make the eight-hour drive up to Minneapolis just yet. Unfortunately, Pizza Camp is sold out.
Which, considering its $49 price tag, is understandable. The overnight retreat takes place just outside of Minneapolis at the Baker Near-Wilderness Settlement. Pizza Camp’s extremely reasonable price-tag includes lodging, a special guest speaker who’ll talk about the art of pizza, a Pizza Camp 2014 T-Shirt(!!!!), and, of course, pizza. This weekend, 50 pizza enthusiasts are set to attend, what we here at Encyclopizzeria hope will be the first of many, Pizza Camp.
