Time & Location
About The Event
Join The Camaraderie at Camp Kaufman, NY (Staten Island!) for a weekend of nature-driven bliss, with Outdoor Fest!
"We know that as city dwellers it's often hard to feel connected to an outdoor community in our 'hometown'. OutdoorFest provides a place for outdoor enthusiasts to unite and build community by reshaping the way we view our lives in cities and advocating for the accessibility of the outdoors.
We know that you can live in the city and still love the outdoors."
Get Ready for 24 Hours of...
Expect everything from hiking to trail running to yoga to slacklining to camping! Throughout your 24 hours at camp you'll find active adventures going on every hour throughout our 75-acre green paradise.
Whether you're cheering on the crazy ultra runners, dancing to this year's band, looking at the night sky through a telescope or just hanging out in a hammock with a cool Sierra Nevada, the camp-out will help you get away from it all.
Do you want to learn how to start a fire? Cast a fly fishing line? Pack for a multi-day trip? Tell a wicked story around the campfire? Our workshops are led by the best guides in NYC and are no pressure ways to learn skills before heading into the back-country.
The line-up for this year's campout hasn't been released yet but rest assured, we'll be dancing our pants off.
