Saint Louis, MO (September 6, 2012) – Joel Clark, “Spirits Guide” at Sanctuaria, recently named the BEST PLACE FOR COCKTAILS by the Riverfront Times and winner of the 2012 OPEN TABLE DINERS CHOICE AWARD, is heading to Camp Runamok in Bardstown, Kentucky on Monday. Out of 80 bartenders selected to attend, he will be the only St. Louisan and will represent the city with pride.  The daily camp itinerary will include learning about the art of distillation, visiting distilleries, participating in community activities, as well as other traditional camp activities.

Camp Runamok is the first summer camp designed for bartenders.  With a focus on education, charity and community building, Camp Runamok is dedicated to bettering the craft-bartending world in an engaging and approachable environment.  “Lion’s Club Camp Crescendo” is the home of Camp Runamok.  As a working camp for underprivileged children, Camp Crescendo offers an authentic summer camp experience and an opportunity for our campers to do some thing positive for the community.  Each attendee will be required to donate four (4) hours to help clean up the camp, as well as become a dime-a-day sponsor.  For additional information about Camp Runamok, contact
