29th Annual IMEN Gathering
Darlington, Maryland, United States of America
(in 7 months)
**The IMEN Gathering will include two additional days (July 12 & 13) which will include all camp amenities and meals for both days at the reduced rate of $100.00 per day.
If you register to attend the pre-gathering days, these will be “bare bones" relaxing, non-event, no activities, lay around the pool days. We plan to have a modified “Happy Hour” with limited snacks as opposed to the full two-table buffet we normally have. We plan to have the Open Bar available and music provided by our DJ. We also hope to possibly have Shenanigans open no later than Saturday evening. The Disco Barn function has yet to be determined.
Those who have already registered and would like to also attend either or both of the additional days, contact us via: [email protected] to receive a special link on our website to pay online, or, you may mail payment to our PO Box address: IMEN, P.O. Box 578, Rising Sun, Maryland 21911.**
You may attend our regular IMEN Gathering (July 14th - 16th) for any number of days (one to seven) at the rate of $120.00 per day. Just consider what the daily rate covers:
Lodging, 3 great meals per day, all you wish to drink….be it water, sodas, beer, liquor (at specified times/events)….daily themed "Happy Hour" parties with an enormous buffet of fruit platters, veggie platters, cheese platters, nuts, chips, crackers, cookies, more….an Open Bar, along with a Margarita/Smoothie Machine AND a $50.00 daily cash prize awarded for the most appropriate / original costume related to the day's theme. There are few, if any, better complete vacation accommodation packages available. That’s a GOOD DEAL!!
Our annual gatherings are held at campgrounds located in northeastern Harford County, Darlington, Maryland. Enjoy days of relaxation sitting in the tree shaded areas and chatting with new and old friends or lying in the sun in a lounge chair by the pool or dive into the pool for a cool, refreshing swim or take a walk along the nature trails. There are so many choices, but you are in charge of your vacation…….do as much or as little as you choose. In other words, total carefree, liberated relaxation.
Fun interactive group activities and games occur throughout each day. Volleyball is very popular. Some of us, who may still enjoy tapping into the "kid" that still lurks within us, have lots of fun by playing on the Water Slide, participating in the Pudding Battle, and..... there will be a new surprise event this year. Also…..a Foam Party will happen at least twice during the week. Numerous workshops are scheduled relating to lots of varied/interesting subjects such as Massages, Yoga, Gay Travel, "Gone with the Wind" lecture, Line Dancing, 2-Step Dancing, Men's Health Workshops, etc., etc. Leather Werks will again be presenting classes. There are just too many to mention here.
For those who bring items to sell or want to purchase items at our Craft Fair, this will be a daily event in the Pool / Breezeway Area.
In the evening hours, there is always the choice of a movie, Bingo, Ice Cream Social and, of course, Shenanigans (the nightly IMEN Hangout) for socializing, snacking on Pop Corn, Hot Dogs, other varied snacks while enjoying the nightly drink of the evening. Then, step into the Dance Barn to enjoy the laser light and video show while dancing those sandals off to the mixes of our DJ guy. You can also wander down to the lake for our nightly Camp Fire!
We plan throughout the entire year to provide you with the most fun-filled "bang for your buck" vacation that we can possibly imagine. So, as we always say, REGISTER SOON, then pack-up your bare necessities and join us for a fun-filled experience.
