Join us for the 9th Annual Great American Campout. Come out and enjoy food, fun, fellowship, and a night of family camping under the stars. This event is especially geared for first time campers. You will learn how to set up tents, roast marshmallows, make s’mores, take a night hike and nocturnal insect experience, and witness top-notch entertainment including African storytelling and a vibrant drum circle. We have many activities planned. Campers will enjoy fun and educational hikes, and many other activities! This event is appropriate for new and inexperienced campers. Check-in starts at 3pm and will close at 6pm. Unfortunately, we can not accommodate late arrivals.

After 8 successful years, we are extremely excited to return to the Outdoor Activity Center (OAC), a part of the Atlanta Children's Forest Network, for another campout. The OAC is a 26-acre urban nature preserve located just a few miles from downtown in the Richland Hills community of Southwest Atlanta.

All adults must be accompanied by at least 1 child. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please list the ages of children participating on the form.

Note: Meal tickets are included in the cost (dinner and a continetal breakfast).

Tents

We have a limited number of loaner tents avaliable for families. Be sure to indicate this on the form. If you have your own tent, please bring it so that those who do not have a tent can participate.

Forms: Please print and bring the Liability/Photo Release form with you to the campout to help speed up check in!

Additional Notes: Please bring a refillable water bottle. No open fires, alcohol, fireworks, smoking or pets

Your contributions allow us to continue to provide free and low cost programs to children in the Atlanta area from under-served communities. We truly value your contributions.

If you have any questions please contact West Atlanta Watershed Alliance at info@wawa-online.org or 404-752-5385.
