Are you ready for some Kampout? Well, it’s just a couple of weeks away. Time to start putting your gear in order and making your final plans to head up the hill. Get out of the heat and relax in the cool nights and comfortable days.
Just to remind you, this year’s theme is Kampout goes on Safari. Lions and tigers and...yes…those bears. This is the theme we planned for last year’s event which had to be cancelled due to fires, so if you had already started planning decorations, you're ahead of the game. As always, we will have a contest for decorating your kampsite, and you could win fabulous prizes...and have a lot of fun.
Kampout is, as always, the weekend after Labor Day. This year it will be September 7-9. It will be held on the private property across the road from Texas Flat Campground, on the left side, so directions to the event are the same. There will be signs to guide you to the kamp.
The cost for the weekend is just $30 per kamper. This includes your kampsite, 2 beer busts, the Progressive Kocktail Party, Saturday dinner, 2 breakfasts, and much, much more. You can relax, or join in the fun and games we have scheduled during the weekend and compete for prizes. There's the Yacht Regatta, the Needle in the Haystack, and the always popular and hilarious Kamptown Races. Don't forget the wonderful Kampstravaganza Show on Saturday night, where you can compete for the titles of Kamp King and Kamp Kween. We encourage everyone to participate in this fun show.
Camping in the Sierras can cost over $20 a night just for a campsite. At $30 for the whole weekend, Kampout is definitely the best bargain for your entertainment buck.
We want to advise everyone that, because we are on private property, there is no garbage service. Be prepared to "pack it in, pack it out". Private campfires will be allowed only if you bring an above ground, backyard type, pit. You must also have a fire extinguisher, water bucket and shovel. All dogs must be on a leash at all times. This is for everyone’s safety.
So mark your calendars. We hope to see you all there.
