Camp Christmas Returns with a Virtual Winter Wonderland
This year’s Camp Christmas offers access to an immersive online experience sprung from the imagination of creator Lonnie Hanzon, along with packages filled with festive crafts and activities to complete at home.

Last year’s Camp Christmas exhibition brought out more than 70,000 visitors, as families showed up in droves to experience creator Lonnie Hanzon’s winter wonderland at the Hangar at Stanley Marketplace. This year, Hanzon has dreamed up a way for families and friends to be together among similar wintry festivities—even if they’re not physically in the same room.

Hanzon’s solution is a 2020 Camp Christmas event that takes place partially in a virtual, interactive fictional “camp” through a web-based app, and partially with users at home, who will receive deliverables for festive activities like garland-making, paper snowflake folding, and crafting DIY Christmas tree ornaments. Created in collaboration with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Off-Center and Hanzon Studios, the experience goes live on November 20 and runs through January 5.

Participants can also expect a local touch coming through in this fantasy land, as Hanzon drew inspiration from his childhood growing up in the mountains near Pine, Colorado, where he dreamed of one day owning a Christmas-themed cabin of his own. This year, he’ll see part of that dream realized, as he broadcasts a countdown to Christmas from his own cabin within the Camp Christmas virtual world.
