Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) May 05, 2013

On May 5, one of the nation’s leading Internet marketing companies, fishbat, applauds a new summer camp from The Digital Detox, which bans technology use for a few days.

According to an article published by Mashable, no technology is allowed at Camp Grounded, a summer camp for adults, which aims to limit electronics use. The article says this 1970s-style summer camp, organized by The Digital Detox, is a four-day experience comprised of about 232 campers. There are three important rules in this camp:

  •     No cell phones allowed
  •     No talking about work
  •     No technology use

Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, says society has assimilated to a highly digital lifestyle.

“People who work in Internet marketing companies, like fishbat, spend most of their time online, as you could assume,” he says. “We are continuously using computers, cell phones and social media outlets to do business. Now that businesses and people rely on digital outlets to communicate, it could be hard to step away from it. It’s a habit and it’s what employees in this industry have grown accustomed to. However, there has to be some way for us to take a break from technology and get back to doing things outside.”

Maas says the camp is a great idea for people who are constantly using electronics and work too much to spend time away from their digital counterparts. “Camp Grounded is great in theory,” he says. “There, campers get to play capture the flag, learn archery, and get in touch with their artistic side. It takes you back to being a little kid and sometimes people really need a break from the pressures and attachments of work. Something like this could be a great way for employees and employers to bond. It could be a really nice company retreat.”
