Queer Outdoors Group Camping 101

Join Amy and Will for this fun chance to dip your toes into camping at Glimmerglass State Park.

If you don’t feel up to spending the night, come for dinner on Friday night and hang out around the campfire. OCCA will have gear to borrow so don’t let that stop you from spending a night under the stars! Let us know on the registration form what you need so we can be sure to have enough on hand.

Will and Amy will go over the basics of how to set up a tent before starting the group campfire for dinner. OCCA will provide the protein, veggie option, condiments and smores for the group but we ask that participants bring a snack or side to share.

In the morning participants are welcome to join in on a morning walk around the park before departing.
