Campout for Public Lands

Celebrate National Public Lands Day in style! Campout For Public Lands is a celebration of the land that we love, the winding down of camping season, and a chance to give back and have fun in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.

Campout for Public Lands

September 17-18, 2023

Newberry Group Camp

Located on the south shore of Paulina Lake, Newberry Group Camp is an ideal location to host our 21+ glamping experience. Whether you’re new to camping or have been pitching your tent for decades, we would love for you to join our annual celebration and fundraiser. This year, we have held tickets aside for need-based scholarships. Head to the FAQ page for information on scholarships and offerings.

On Saturday September 17th, we will kick off a packed weekend in the caldera. Attendees will enjoy catered meals by Port of Subs and Willie Burger Bend, watercraft demos brought by Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, entertainment from the finest Drag Queens in all of Bend, guided yoga sessions from R’oming Yoga, adult beverages provided by 10 Barrel Brewing, a dance party and a damn good time. The next morning we will provide breakfast, a coffee and hot drinks bar from Pacific Perks, and a Cleansing Yoga class before wrapping up the event.

All of the funds generated from the event go to support Discover Your Forest and our mission of bolstering outdoor volunteerism and creating the next generation of environmental stewards.



Proceeds from the event help us fund our programs, expand our reach to under-served communities, and offer free field trips to thousands of Central Oregon’s youth annually!
