APRIL 22-24, 2022
2022 will be Georgia Bushcraft’s 10th anniversary since its inception. Our small group started with less than a dozen members gathering for our first event back in spring 2012. We have since grown to well over 500+ attendees from all over the country.
Back in the early days we would host two main events a year, the Spring and Fall Campout. After much blood, sweat, and tears we decided two events a year was a bit too much and we wanted to focus more on one main event a year, the Fall Gathering.
Year after year, our community grew and grew and in 2021 we decided that we would bring back the Spring Campout the following year (2022) with a few stipulations. Since our Fall Gathering is known for an incredibly busy weekend schedule (some days with 6+ classes or workshops happening every hour) we wanted to focus more on community and fellowship and a little less structure. We wanted to also incorporate more gear trading, camping related activities and family time with a more relaxed atmosphere.
“You’ll have access to subject matter experts in their own respected fields all weekend.” -Bill McGee
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Spring Campout is all about fun, relaxation, and community in the outdoors. Come park and setup camp in either our large field or take a short walk through our trail to Basecamp and enjoy a more woodland camping experience. Bring the kids, the dog, or just come alone, there’s something for everyone.
ON THE SCHEDULE
Bushcraft Flea-market (Trade Blanket) Buy, Sell, or Trade your used outdoor gear PLUS a bunch of vendors from all over the country.
World-Famous Georgia Bushcraft Raffle – $1000’s worth of amazing outdoor related items like knives, axes, flashlights, and so on. And it’s all up for grabs. Each Adult and Youth admission includes 5x Raffle tickets. Additional tickets are available for purchase.
Local Food Vendors – We will have several delicious food vendors on-site throughout the weekend.
Workshops & Classes – Don’t worry, we will still have plenty of classes and instruction but it will be more laid back. If you haven’t been to a Georgia Bushcraft event before, imagine random fire starting demos, blacksmithing, campfire cooking, wild edible walks and so much more.
Challenges – We always find time to put our skills to the test! You may find a spontaneous fire starting challenge or a cast iron cooking competition.
