East Bay Hills Benefit Campout

Join us for the 19th annual East Bay Hills Benefit Campout. After a tough year with the pandemic we have simplified the event by focusing on bringing the community together in the beautiful Bort Meadow. This is a casual event for up to 4 nights of camping, mingling, and experiencing the trails on your own schedule. We provide the campsite, community, and resources to help you explore the trails. All user groups are welcome: Equestrians, Hikers, and Bicyclists join us!
