What is there to do during the Melanated Campout Event?

Like what the hell do we do on a camping trip?

I remember my first camping trip, I'd been forced to go with my grandmother. It seemed like a silly thing to do, especially when I'd just planned to stay home watching my favorite series.  I just couldn't understand the fun thing that we could do while camping. After that camping trip, I went on many other camping trips because I had so much fun I wondered why I hadn't considered going camping earlier.

And you're much more lucky than I am if you're going for the Melanated Campout event in June because there are so many fun things to do.

Here are some of the fun things you can get up to at Melanated Campout:

Meet new people

There is going to be a meet and greet on the first day that is the best time to meet fellow campers and find people with whom you would have fun for the rest of the big camping event. So go to the meet and greet, mingle with people, make friends and just have fun.

At the Icebreaker activity, you can also meet more people and familiarize yourself with people you met at the meet and greet while learning the camp rules.

Party! Party! Party!

For those that love partying, there are going to be lots of parties.

For the Hip Hop glow party, you get to wear neon and even glow in the dark face paint. This is a perfect opportunity to show off your dancing skills as well. The Soca Fete on Saturday is a great time to jump around to power soca tunes and shake your body to groovy soca.  There is also going to be an old school hip hop/ R&B outfit party that you can't afford to miss.

The Midnight Spades Tournament

There is nothing that can compare to a nice game of spades. At Melanated campout, you get to enjoy the pleasure of participating in a Midnight Spades Tournament or just watching. In this spades tournament, all you need is a little luck, a competitive adventurous spirit, the ability to read people and the desire to have fun.

Of course, at Melanated Campout, we are on a campground. So you will have access to both hot showers and clean restroom facilities.


Tubing is a great recreational activity where you get to ride an inner tube on water, snow or air. Since the big camping events will be in Helen, GA, you get to ride down the Chattahoochee or the 1000 feet river in Helen. Read our Tubing blog post.

The Comedy Show

One of my favorite things to do is laugh.  So you know we had to add in a comedian. Get ready to laugh or at least giggle.

There are many other things you can do while camping at Melanated Campout, you can decide to go hiking, go lake dipping, participate in the freaky feud and game shows and have as much fun as possible. This camping trip is sure to be an adventure you will never forget.
