What Is the Spring Campout?

What Is the Spring Campout?

The Spring Campout is just three weeks away, so we wanted to take a look at some questions and answers that you might be wondering about. The Georgia Bushcraft Spring Campout has changed over the last couple of years, and it's truly become something unique among our other events. So, just in case you're still on the fence, here are some things you need to know about the Spring Campout. 

What makes the Spring Campout different from the Fall event?

The Spring Campout is meant to be a more community and demo-driven event. Specifically, this year, we are aiming to focus more on homesteading and offgrid living topics. We also offer a Bushcraft Fleamarket, where everyone has the opportunity to bring their gear and set up a trade blanket.

What is there to do? 

The Spring Campout is a bit of a choose-your-own-adventure. You can simply hang out in camp, visit with attendees, and take in the conversation. You can also attend classes, demos, and workshops throughout the week. Perusing the trade blanket is a sure way to score a deal, and we'll have plenty of vendors that will have a wide range of goods available. If you're looking for a bite to eat, check out the food trucks. They're always a big hit. And speaking of hits, we'll have live music for evening entertainment.  

Who will be there? 

It would probably be easier to list who won't be there, but we'll try our best. Currently, we have 50 plus vendors that are a variety of who's who in the bushcraft, self-reliance, and homesteading communities. Plus, we have over 40 classes, and we'll add even more before the weekend of the Camp Out.

We also have to include the great members of the Georgia Bushcraft community who support our events year after year. They're also a great source of knowledge and skills, and it's not uncommon for impromptu round tables and demos to break out around the property. 

What is the camping like? 

From bedrolls to 40' campers, everything goes during our events. Choose to camp in the open field or woodland area. Seriously, you can expect to see everything from campers, to large tents, to small backpacking tents, to hammocks and tarps. Speaking of hammocks, Warbonnet Outdoors will be in attendance so if you need to level up you hammock game, you're set. 

What else makes the Spring Campout a must-see event? 

This year, we will have new classes like Survival Gardening, Sawmilling, Basic Goat Care, Homesteading On A Budget, Keeping Backyard Chickens, and so many more. Some notable guests/instructors will be Jared Grochowski from Southern Homesteads, teaching Solar For Beginners and Off Grid Water; Theresa Kamper is returning to teach her excellent hide tanning workshop during the event; Caroline Ross is teaching 'Make Watercolor Paint From Earth', and author Suzanne Shires from Simple Homestead Living will be teaching several classes.

Simply put, the Spring Campout is a great place to learn and meet likeminded people from across the worlds of survival, bushcraft, self-reliance, preparedness, homesteading, and more. Don't miss out on this great chance to become a part of an amazing community.
