Campout

Sept 29- Oct 1, 2023

OUr Mission

Outdoors are for everyone
We believe the outdoors are for everyone and our mission is to encourage more people of color to fall in love with camping. To help with that mission, we offer a weekend filled with both fun and relaxing activities that allow people to enjoy the outdoors, grow via empowerment sessions and connect with one another.  We have a very positive community feeling environment and we welcome everyone who supports  our mission to attend.

We are serious about our mission of promoting the outdoors as an inclusive place and in the three years since inception we have hosted over 850 campers.


About

Connect with nature and each other
Melanated Campout was created by 3 friends who wanted to challenge their friends to do something different, relaxing, and exciting.

Are you living your best life filled with relaxation and adventure? Do you like the idea of an adult camping weekend campout but cannot see yourself “roughing it”? Are you open to having a weekend where you can connect with nature, camp in style, partake in adventuresome games and activities, as well as party under the stars? Our campers enjoy tent and RV camping, fishing, yoga, empowerment classes, line dancing, field day activities, themed parties, and much more!

We have the perfect solution: Melanated Campout!

FAQ

As luck would have it, in addition to being amazing at event planning and camping, we are also amazing at reading minds. You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Are there showers and toilets?

Yes, nice restrooms are plentiful and on-site.  And we will have a cleaning service to keep them nice and clean.

I'm new to camping, can I still come if it's my first time?

Yes, Campout is for All campers, both old and new. This will be a great time to make new camp cousins and visit with the ones you already know.

What is the difference between a premium tent site and dry tent?

Dry tent means that you bring your own water and electricity (power bank, no generators). No worries, it's easy and the great news is that if you are tent camping, you probably already have all the items you need around your house.

Are there refunds? How do transfers work?

All deposits and payments are non-refundable. Please consider adding the purchase protection option to your ticket for that added assurance. In addition, you can transfer your package to another person. Transfers and name changes are $35 per transfer.

Log-in to your registrant account to make all transfers. Any changes made to the reservation through email/phone will incur a $45 fee.

Campground Address

For security reasons, we only disclose the address to paid registrants. That said it's located in Central GA, less than 2.5 hours from Atlanta.

What airport should I fly into to get to the campground?

The nearest major airport is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL / KATL), which has international and domestic flights from Atlanta, Georgia and is 2.25 hours from Cordele, GA.

Can I arrive early?

Yes, you can arrive early on Thursday.  There are no official Melanated Campout activities planned for Thursday, but feel free to come early to pre-game/tailgate with the Melanated Campout staff, volunteers and your camp cousins.

Is there a payment plan available?

Yes,  we offer 2 installments.  You can put down a deposit to secure your spot.  The date for the remaining balance payment will be provided at the time the deposit is made.  All deposits are non-refundable.  All payments are non-refundable.

How old do I have to be attend?
