Thousands of Amazonians are expected to descend on CenturyLink Field in Seattle this weekend for the tech giant’s annual employee picnic. Billed as “Camp Amazon,” the two-day affair will include a wide range of family friendly activities.

The football/soccer stadium and the events center next door will be divided into smaller camps including:

Art Camp, for arts and crafts, face painting and a performance stage. Sports Camp, for kicking field goals, hula hoop instruction, soccer drills and traditional picnic games. Adventure & Science Camp, featuring an AWS maker space, fireside story time, laser tag and science demos. Summer Camp & Beach Boardwalk, with balloon art, climbing walls, toddler play area and video games. The Great Outdoors, with camp tattoos, a petting zoo, fishing challenge, and more.

The entertainment schedule will also feature a number of musical acts and other types of performers, including:

Recess Monkey, Grammy-nominated elementary school teachers who are Amazon Original Music artists. Reptile Man, an interactive live reptile show. Day Juan, an Amazon rock band formerly known as Juan Direction. Vikki Green, a ventriloquist. Pig Snout, a Tacoma, Wash.-based family rock band. The Not Its, Seattle “kindie rock” quartet.

There will also be a giant LEGO build.

Oh, and a drum circle. Because an event that can accommodate 40,000 Amazonians/Amazonian family members demands synchronized thumping.
