Some of our twists on traditional day camp activities:

  • Arts & Crafts – Get creative with our friends from Chikoko.
  • Human Hungry Hippos – Life-sized version of the beloved tabletop game.
  • Ropes course – It’s pretty high up, and pretty far out.
  • Archery tag – Unleash your inner Katniss in a battle against your friends.
  • Rock climbing wall – It’s massive, but you’re fearless, right?
  • Keg bowling – Eh, it’s more like “keg chucking,” but you’re still bowling over some pins.
  • Human foosball – Start recruiting your team, or draft free agents once you’re there.
  • Corn hole – Because this is one of our favorite sports.
  • Zorb racing – An outta-this-world human hamster wheel like you’ve never seen.
  • GellyBall – Capture the Flag meets paintball, but with soft, water-based beads instead!
  • Hammock lounge stations – Naptime is back and better than ever.


Crank the volume in the Little Things Lounge, featuring super talented entertainers providing all the festival vibes.

  • Silent Disco DJs: We're excited welcome Jolene, Spretch Magic, DJ Uyes and DJ Trazz back to the silent disco tent!
  • Live Karaoke: What summer camp talent shows should’ve been — live band, you behind the mic, and a crowd of fans singing along. Time to hit the stage!


We like tasty bites almost as much as cold craft beers, so expect some awesome culinary creations for purchase.

  • Camp Snacks: Check out the can stations inside camp to find on-the-go snacks. (Nobody likes it when you’re hangry.)
  • Food Trucks: Local favorites have delicious menus in the works.
  • More to come – check out the event website for updates,


Awesome events, done right — that’s the goal! Every year, we divert more than 90% of the Beer Camp waste away from landfill, and it’s a comprehensive effort:

  • Serving our beverages in recyclable vessels such as aluminum cans or reusable tasting glasses. Recycling stations are available throughout the event.
  • Partnering with Chico Velo to provide Bike Valet services for avid cyclists or those using alternative forms of transportation.
  • Highly encouraging attendees and staff to bring a reusable water bottle from home and providing access to water throughout the event space.
  • Requiring all food vendors to use compostable service materials.

This year, help us make Beer Camp a Zero-Waste Event!

  • Ride your bike (or scooter, or unicycle) to the festival. We’ll protect it overnight if you need to leave it.
  • Crush those cans! Once you’ve finished a beverage, drop it at one of our recycling stations.
  • Bring your reusable water bottle and refill it at one of our many “Water Monster” stations.
  • Stay tuned for more tips…

PLEASE DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE. Really, we can’t stress this enough: if you overindulge, leave your car or bike overnight and come back for it the next day. Take the free shuttle or a taxi; you’ll make some new friends and keep everyone safe. We also created these great options for you:

  • 1. FREE SHUTTLE from Downtown Chico – The shuttle will run on a continuous loop on Saturday from 10:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Pickup and drop-off are at the transit center across from Madison Bear Garden. This transportation option is ideal for those seeking post-camp fun.
  • 2. RIDE YOUR BIKE – Chico Velo is offering complimentary bike valet services and there is plentiful bike parking at the brewery. We don’t advocate drinking and riding your bike, though.
  • 3. PARKING AT SILVER DOLLAR FAIRGROUNDS – Complimentary parking is available at the fairgrounds, and we’ll run shuttles from 10:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. If you need to, leave your car overnight at the fairgrounds and pick it up the next day.
