How To Host a Public Campout

Grizzly Family: Don Johnston

Are you interested in taking your Campout to the next level? Consider hosting a public Campout in your neighborhood or community!

An event is categorized as public if you or the host of the event are extending an open invitation for anyone in the local area to join, either by pre-registering or walk-in. The information you provide in our survey will be listed publicly to allow visitors of to find and join your Campout. Should you choose not to designate your Campout as public, your previous pledge to camp will not be impacted.
