Welcome Campers! While the global pinball community works to adapt to the many difficulties that the Covid era has presented the world and our hobby – join your pals in Seattle to celebrate the friendships, talent, and the playful spirit that makes our scene great!
As we stay home together this year, let’s not lose sight of the incredible bonds that have formed over this wonderful game with a two day series of spirit lifting online content including:
Photo contest! Dress up for camp, or trick out your living room/bedroom/yard like a campsite. OR BOTH. Prizes for best costume and best site!
Pinyasa – Beginner friendly and pinball player focused yoga and meditation events from Namaslay with Alyson Rae and Pinyasa. On Zoom
Crafternoon on Zoom – craft, paint, doodle, color, build, cook, knit, sew, garden, assemble your IKEA furniture – whatever’s clever! Show and Tell your quarantine creative superpowers while catching up with pinball friends old and new!

All campers will have a public Facebook group to check in for updates, links, announcements, fun discussions, an ongoing Truth Or Dare game, opportunities to reminisce about NWPAS past, and drop in and out of a Facebook ‘Room’ to have casual chats and revelry. https://www.facebook.com/groups/nwpinballsummercamp//
While nothing can replace the experience of the conventions that bring the world’s pinball communities together this season, we here at NW Pinball Summer Camp are proud of the tenacity, whimsy, and ceaseless spirit of collaboration within the Seattle pin-fam, and hope it brings laughs and love across our region and beyond on an otherwise sad weekend. PINBALL FOREVER!!!
