Olympus Campground and Resort will be a private, alternative, adults-only membership-based campground and resort in Central / Eastern Virginia.
The campground will operate similar to a number of existing LGBTQ campgrounds that cater primarily to gay and bi men. However, the primary audiences and event themes of the Olympus campground will be expanded to include Pagan men, as well as those involved in the mythopoetic men’s movement. Secondary markets will include gay and bi college students and military, men’s groups of all kinds, bears, leather folks, male nudists, and men’s fetish groups. While the campground resort will mainly be marketed to men, no one will be turned away because of gender or gender identity. Coed gatherings and events might also be hosted depending on interest and available resources.
Events will include themed weekends and conferences coordinated by the resort itself, as well as conferences and gatherings hosted by outside groups. Events will mainly cater to our primary and secondary audiences. Live concerts and other special events will also take place.
The campground resort will feature tent campsites, cabins, RV sites, and a few bunk houses. A main lodge will include a registration desk, leisure space, and a restaurant. The restaurant will be run by an outside food vendor and may double as a bar on evenings and weekends. The restaurant or another food vendor will offer meal plans to campers and conferences. A recreation center with indoor and outdoor recreation options including a pool and hot tub(s) will also be featured. Stages and fire circles will be set throughout the campground for special events.
Overall, the resort will have a Greco-Roman theme. A separate, but interdependent, Hellenic Temple open to Hellenists and Pagans will likely be built on an adjacent property. If so, this temple may offer community events such as solar and lunar observances, workshops, and classes.
A comprehensive business plan is available upon request to potential investors.
