Never change, John Waters. The singular writer/director — whose 71st birthday it happens to be today — has announced the weekend-long Camp John Waters, an “adult summer camp” being held in Kent, Connecticut from September 22-24. Tickets aren’t cheap (they range from $499-$599), but they do prove a unique opportunity to spend three days with the man responsible for “Pink Flamingos” and other divine oddities.

In addition to traditional summer-camp activities, the one-of-a-kind event will also entail watching not only Waters’ movies but also his one-man show, performing karaoke to “Hairspray,” playing Bloody Mary Bingo and enjoying scotch and cigars — which is to say, exactly the kind of wholesome pastimes you’d expect of the “Cry-Baby” and “Multiple Maniacs” director.

Waters, who’s currently on a book tour with his memoir “Make Trouble,” will be in attendance throughout the weekend. If you’d like to praise his recent work in “Feud” or politely ask him whether he’ll ever get the chance to follow up 2004’s “A Dirty Shame,” this could be your best shot. More details here.
