Despite devastating the fashion world by chopping off his glorious ombré locks back in March, actor/musician Jared Leto is still relevant and still hot in his own eclectic way, which is why devotees will be really into his latest project.
This August, Leto and his band (oh yeah, that thing) Thirty Seconds to Mars will debut Camp Mars, a three-day, two-night camping adventure that will feature yoga, meditation, karaoke, tug of war, "spiritual teachings" (à la fellow thespian Andrew Keegan?), and a performance by the band under the pseudo name Church of Mars. Although packages (which range from $399 for a day visit to $1,999 for a sleepover in a semi-private cabin) include "coffee time" with Jared's brother and bandmate Shannon, the experiences sadly do not mention any one-on-one time with Jared, so don't get your hopes up.
Event availability is first come, first serve and there are only 550 overnight packages available. And per the camp's all-caps disclaimer, don't expect much privacy: "THIS IS A RUSTIC NATURE EXPERIENCE EXPECT TO SHARE YOUR LIVING SPACE AND LIVE IN A WONDERFULLY COMMUNAL WAY. THE FACILITIES ARE CLEAN AND SAFE BUT THEY NOT FOUR STAR HOTEL SUITES WITH DINNER MINTS ON YOUR PILLOWS MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE GETTING."
