Welcome to Camp It, a new gay men's camping event. Come relax, meet new friends and broaden your horizons.
4 Days / 3 Nights Camping - Fri 24th Oct - Mon 27th Oct 2014
We have a fantastic location locked in for the first Camp It event. The event location will be kept secret till closer to the date and you will be notified by email (who doesn’t love a bit of mystery?). We can tell you that it is located 1 hour west from Brisbane (2 hours from the Sunshine Coast and 1.5 hours from the Gold Coast).
This beautiful site with its spectacular views and easy access to the swimming area - will make for a fantastic weekend. There are a great number of absolute waterfront campsites for the ultimate relaxing weekend - 42 campsites plus 3 camper trailer and 2 caravan sites. Most sites have enough room for a few tents, so you can camp with your mates close by. Each site features a small fireplace - bring firewood or you can purchase it onsite.
When you arrive at Camp It you will be given a guidebook. Your “Essential guide to Camp It” will contain everything you can expect from your Camp It weekend with a where and when for all events and activities, including mealtimes, facilities supplied and of course the rules.
Fun and Entertainment
Martini Ice and Carmen Taykett will be our hosts for the weekend. Martini and Carmen are very excited to come along and host all the fun activities and of course a performance from the girls. We’ve got some silly and communal games planned to keep you entertained.
Our aim is to create a fun friendly environment where you can just be yourself. With a mixture of fun group activities and a get together wouldn’t be complete without some great tunes to listen to and Camp It is providing some of Brisbane’s best - DJ LES SMITH and DJ FRADGE. These legends of the Brisbane and Sydney scene will make our evenings super special. You can choose to enjoy the tunes in the DJ area or around the communal fire pit that is close to the music.
Having too much fun at Camp It ? Take some time out in our undercover chill out area. Our cute little “Island resort” area with astroturf, mini pool, blow up palm trees is a great escape.
Food and Cooking Facilities
We will be supplying your dinner meal daily as part of your ticket. Dinner will be held at the communal food area and times for dinner will be printed in your guide. Please bring a plate, knife fork and spoon for dinner.
For breakfast we will also have available for purchase bacon and egg wraps/rolls, as well as coffee, tea and juice.
We are all about making this a community event. We will be holding daily fundraising sausage sizzles hosted by community groups. Camp It will supply the food and all proceeds from the lunch to go to the hosting group for that day. We will have lunch coupons available for purchase at the event if you haven’t already purchased them with your ticket.
Every site has its own small fire BBQ (no hot plates) but a frypan or small hotplate will do the job. We will also have communal food and eating areas with communal barbecues available for use. Bring your own cooking utensils.
This site features hot water showers and normal flushing toilets. There are also plenty of fresh water taps located around the campsite with drinkable town water. Toilets and hot showers will be closed for cleaning daily 10-11am.
And So Much More
We have so much more planned to make your weekend at Camp it a fun and memorable weekend away that we hope you’re talking about till our next event. We want to keep some things a surprise and some we will release over the coming months as we get closer to the event. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for new information about the event, and competitions.
