Year 5 of Collective Campout will be August 23-25, 2019.


Early Bird Registration closes May 31, 2019. General Registration opens June 1, 2019.


We work with many agencies that are interested in sending multiple employees to camp and would like to cover some or all of the costs. Please contact us to discuss your options.


The Collective Campout provides you the opportunity to meet your peers from around the Pacific Northwest. You’ll have the chance to learn, create and grow together. It’ll be a blast from beginning to end and you will forge friendships that will last long after the smell of campfire fades from your clothes.


Call it networking. Call it a retreat with friends. Call it community involvement. It doesn’t matter. Just be there to experience it and step outside…yourselves. Make sure to hashtag your Instagram photos #aafcollectivecampout and #collectivecampout to see all things Collective Campout.
