3 nights of camping on private property in a private setting.  (We will not be providing food or camping gear but if you need camping gear we will try to accommodate)

Evening Activities to build connections and community

​The camping facilities can be rustic, with composting toilets or porta potties for bathrooms. Please come prepared to camp in this environment!

This year we have added an additional day and are trying a new approach to the structure of Climb OUT Campout with activity tracks geared towards interests and experience. Our hope is to make this event more accessible to a broader audience as well as cater to more specific interests. Regardless of the track you select, we’ll share climbing most of our days, our campsite, and downtime together.

Build Community is geared for first time and beginner outdoor climbers looking to build queer climbing community and the skills needed to climb outdoors safely.

Build Skills is geared towards more experienced, intermediate to advanced climbers looking to grow their technical skills and become stronger, more efficient and well rounded in a queer affinity setting
