$5K camping package new to 2016 Symphony in the Flint Hills

KSAL StaffMarch 6, 2016

Well-heeled patrons can sign up for a luxury, weekend-long encampment when the Kansas City Symphony makes its annual journey to the Flint Hills to perform.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/21G6O4J) reports that the “Out of Africa” experience will run $5,000 per couple. Up to 20 15-foot, air-conditioned Belgian tents will be erected in a remote prairie a few miles from this year’s June 11 concert site near the Chase County town of Clements. The all-inclusive camping experience will begin the Friday before the Saturday concert and wrap up that Sunday.

The tents will offer 360-degree views of natural rock outcroppings and a small pond.

Lodging is an ongoing challenge for the event, which each year draws 7,000 people to remote areas where accommodation options are few.
