Celebrating 10-plus years of sample-obsessed production and relentless touring, Gregg Gillis returns with All Day, his fifth album as Girl Talk, and his most epic, densely layered, and meticulously composed musical statement to date. Continuing the saga from the previously acclaimed albums, Night Ripper and Feed The Animals, Gillis lays down a more diverse range of samples to unfold a larger dynamic between slower transitions and extreme cut-ups. With the grand intent of creating the most insane and complex "pop collage" album ever heard, large catalogs of both blatantly appropriated melodies and blasts of unrecognizable fragments were assembled for the ultimate Girl Talk record (clocking in at 71 minutes and 372 samples).
Michael franti & spearhead
Michael Franti & Spearhead have earned a reputation as one of the most electrically charged and ultimately unforgettable live acts in the business. Michael Franti has sold over 2.5million singles of his hit song “Say Hey (I Love You)” and has charted his albums in Billboard’s Top 40 along with frequent appearances on David Letterman, Leno, Conan, Oprah, Ellen and CNN. Franti & Spearhead released the acclaimed album All People last year and have been touring ever since. Franti is recognized as a pioneering force in music as a vehicle for social activism. Not only is he a singer-songwriter-guitarist and philanthropist, he has also diligently created and supported numerous environmental, humanitarian and social causes. It all explains the evolution of sound on All People - colossal dance beats and dizzying electronic effects taking the fore, as well as lyrical sincerity that has always had Franti singing about what moves him most.

WeWork is the community of creators. We transform buildings into beautiful, collaborative workspaces and provide infrastructure, services, events and technology so our members can focus on doing what they love. We currently have 19 locations in six cities with over 10,000 members.
We’re headed back to summer camp!
WeWork members and their guests will escape the city, and take over Raquette Lake Camps for a weekend full of education, inspiration and fun!
What does a typical day at camp look like? After walking to the dining hall for coffee and breakfast, the possibilities are endless. You could take a yoga class, attend a workshop, zipline through the trees and canoe all before lunch.
When you get on the bus, a schedule of events will be handed to you. At camp, you're free to attend or participate in anything you want! You create your day of activities based on your preferences!
What you need to know
Where will I be sleeping?
Campers will have the option to stay in a bunk or tent provided by WeWork, or go DIY style and bring their own tents.
How is the camp set up?
Raquette Lake Camp is split up into two sites: Girls Camp and Boys Camp. These sites are gender-neutral and we don’t separate the boys from the girls.
The camps are super close and we have designated ferries making non-stop trips back and forth between the two sites until 2am so you’ll never miss any of the action.
What’s the difference between Girls Camp and Boys Camp?
In terms of activities/amenities, both sides of the camp are the same. Breakfast and lunch are served on both sites, but dinner is served at Boys Camp only. We like to eat dinner as a group!
The main concert stage is located on the Boys Camp side, which means the concerts and late night fun will be happening on this side. Boys Camp tends to be livelier and louder, so if you’re looking for nights that are a bit earlier and quieter, we recommend choosing accommodations at the Girls Camp.
Healthy and delicious, we have options that will fit all dietary preferences.
Homemade roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips, salad bar, pasta salad, sandwich board with roast beef, oven roasted turkey, genoa salami, corned beef, falafel and tahini, provolone cheese, american cheese, assorted wraps and pita, rye, white and multi-grain breads, potato chips, pickles, condiments and fresh fruit.
Grilled Steak, bbq chicken, grilled salmon, grilled vegetables, farfalle and penne pasta with marinara, alfredo and garlic or olive oil and broccoli, cesear Salad, eggplant Salad, marinated mushroom salad, tomato and onion salad, mixed green salad, kosher grill station.

A single bunk in a male-only or female-only cabins.
The bunk accommodations range from 8 person cabins to 20 person cabins and have showers and bathrooms located inside the bunk house.
If shared cabins and bunk beds aren't your thing, we’ve got you covered! There are two tenting options: 4 person cot packages and Queen packages for couples. Prices are varied.
Queen packages include a 10' x 14' white safari tent, queen bed, linens, 2 pillows, blanket (we suggest still bringing a sleeping bag or another heavy blanket), bamboo table and chairs.
4 cot packages include a 10' x 14' white safari tent and 4 cots.
Please note that the tents on the boys camp are located on the main field with the stage. They are centrally located with plenty of security but this means that late a night, this area could be noisy. If you’re looking for a quieter tent experience girls camp might be your best option. That does mean that you’ll have to take the ferry at the end of the night.
Staffed, air conditioned bathroom and shower trailers will be located next to the tents.
We invite a small number of people to bring their own tents to set up on the Boys Camp. (You will be responsible for pitching and breaking down your own tents.)
Showers and bathrooms will be available in the shower house located adjacent to the site.
