Glamp Out

Our Open Invitation

You’re invited! Glamp Out is our annual, signature fundraising event. It’s also your open invitation to support all that we’ve accomplished and aspire to achieve for our community in the outdoors everywhere. Because of your enduring contributions, we have been able to grow our organization to meet the needs of U.S. neighborhoods. Themed “Elevation,” Glamp Out 2023 took place Oct. 20 at Bloc15 in Oakland, California. The evening built on the  momentum of a brand-new HQ team – and both new and veteran volunteer leadership. Each is continuing to help elevate our community and nature work nationwide in this “Year of Elevation.” Because of your support, Outdoor Afro can meet the renewed demand for nature engagement, and new discoveries of joy and healing through collective connections to our land, waterways, and wildlife.
