THANKS TO ALL WHO JOINED!

If you've been to the OutdoorFest NYC Campout you know what our Saturday's night are about - great live music by local band The Mead Mountain Resonators, dancing in the woods, refreshing brews by Sierra Nevada and bonfires for hours.
Put those skills to work with a full campout adventure race. We'll help you find your teams of 8 and you'll have two hours to complete the adventure course (canoe, bushcraft, fly casting and more!) as fast as you can.
After the race, cool down with some refreshments and lunch and join the award ceremony where we'll be presenting the winning teams with lots of swag from our sponsors!
General Camping (Tentsite) - BYO Tent
You bring your own tent. There are two options for General Camping, you can choose "frontcountry" or "sidecountry".
Front country: Similar set-up to our OutdoorFest NYC campout, you will be able to set-up near the main activities on a large field.
Sidecountry: Bring your backpack because we have a 500-acre campground at our disposal - you can pick any spot you'd like. (Note: be prepared to hike around for at least a 1/2 mile).
Tent Cabins - BYO Sleeping Bag
These are the tent cabins that the scouts use over the summer. They sit on wooden tent platforms and include a military cot inside. You should bring your own sleeping bag.
Cabin - BYO Sleeping Bag
Wooden cabins with bunk beds inside - nothing fancy but you will have a literal roof over your head.
Backcountry Lean-tos - BYO Sleeping Bag & Pad
The quietest spot in camp, these backcountry lean-to's are about a 20 minute hike from the parking area. Each lean-to has 4 bunks and there is a compostable toilet and water nearby.
What do you have to eat & drink?
There are water fountains throughout the camp so please bring a water bottle. We'll also have beer from Sierra Nevada Saturday night and coffee Saturday and Sunday morning.
We'll have simple vegetarian and carnivorous options for each meal. Your ticket includes 6 meals: Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch & dinner, Sunday breakfast & lunch.
Should I bring my own food?
There are grills on-site which you're welcome to use. Snacks are never a bad idea!
Can I bring kids?
The full campout is only open to those 21 years of age and older.
Do I need to bring fire starter, fishing gear, water purification methods?
Nope. The water tap is potable, we'll start the fires and Freestone will bring the fishing gear.
Is there cell service and wifi?
There is no wifi. There is cell service at the main camp area though we recommend turning on airplane mode to really enjoy the weekend.
I have more questions...
Tent (if you chose "TENT" as your accomodation)
Sleeping Pad (if you chose "TENT" or "LEAN TO")
Sleeping bag (everyone)
Headlamp or flashlight
Sturdy shoes / hiking boots - the paths are rocky - we highly recommend good shoes.
Yoga mat (or extra towel)
Bathing suit, sunscreen, towel
Playing cards, musical instrument
Drive Yourself / Carpool
We'll be at Camp Tri-Mount in East Jewett New York. You can follow the Google Directions and there is parking on-site.
Add your car (or find a car) via our GroupCarpool Page.
We recommend arriving at the campground by 6:00PM so you have time to set-up camp before sunset.
Take the Shuttle with Skedaddle
Our shuttle will leave NYC at 2:30PM on Friday September 14th and return on Sunday evening around 7PM.
You can "add on" the shuttle during check-out for $60.
The Friday afternoon shuttle will depart from 430 Dyer Avenue New York, NY

Our friends at Skedaddle have just added a new route to their site for everyone who can't get out of work early enough for the Friday bus. It leaves at 7:30AM on Saturday morning and costs $75 roundtrip. Book here.
Join the dream team and become a vendor.
