Making Serif S’mores and Singing Kerning Songs Around the Campfire

The pristine wilderness, the cool blue waters, the sweet smell of pine, and a few dozen people talking about Akzidenz Grotesk. Sound like paradise to you? Then you need to enroll in TypeCamp, taking place August 12 to August 17 on Galiano Island, British Columbia. Only 15 campers will be admitted and your counselors will be none other than Marian Bantjes, Shelley Gruendler and Ross Mills. The activities sound plenty intriguing–actually using scissors and something called “Randicentiarianism”–but no mention of time-honored camp traditions like panty raids or skinny dipping. Guess those little improvisations are up to you.
