Queer Campout is truly a labor of love…and sweat! This is an event for and by queer community, so participating in Queer Campout also means pitching in. Money donations help us pay for supplies and campground reservations, but we also need support in the form of labor to make this event a success—and to ensure that the folks who help organize it are also able to enjoy the campout’s activities without being in “work mode” all the time. We all make Queer Campout happen together!
The amount of time and effort that each role requires varies. Folks in the Organizing Team start planning and preparing months before the campout happens. Folks who are handling registrations will have a lot of work before the campout, but get to relax and enjoy the campout weekend. Other folks won’t have much to do before the campout, as the bulk of their work will be during the event (e.g. the camp greeters or the trash collectors).
