The Great American Camp-In

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - May 24 @ 6:00 pm

This Memorial Day weekend we invite you, wherever you are across the country, to join Tremont Institute for 2 days of family-friendly challenges that will bring the fun and excitement of exploring the great outdoors into your home during The Great American Camp-In!

We know that for most, travel, camping, and outdoor adventure are still not possible, so we’re bringing the adventure home to you and the people you’ve been staying safe with during this virtual event. Teams will earn points as they participate in our activity challenges designed to spark creativity and connectedness.

The experience begins Monday, May 18, when the first set of 30 mini-challenges are released to registered teams. These questions will take you to some interesting places on the internet to explore nature and our national parks. At 12:00pm on Friday, May 22, the Camp-In experience goes live with the release of a wide range of activity challenges. Your team will have 48 hours to complete the challenges. The experience culminates in the early evening of Sunday, May 24, with an interactive livestream campfire celebration featuring Tremont Institute staff and special guests performing songs, stories, skits, and revealing the top-performing Camp-In teams, as well as their prizes!

Registration is free with an optional suggested donation to support Tremont Institute. Registration is open through May 21 at 11:59pm. Teams can register online at gsmit.org/camp-in.
