That was awesome.

A big thanks to all involved!

Collective Campout 2016 was made great through a collaboration of wonderful sponsors, community partners, facilitators, counselors and campers. Thank you all for being a part of it. Keep an ear to the ground for rumblings of the next Collective Campout. Coming Summer 2017.


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.
