Celebrate Nature, and Support the City Kids Wilderness Project, at Snow Peak's At Home Campout

Snow Peak is pleased to present its second annual At Home Campout, uniting backyard and destination campers alike for a weekend dedicated to the simple pleasures found in nearby nature and the joys of life offline. Taking place Memorial Day weekend, May 28th-31st, Snow Peak will offer three weeks of exclusive activities leading up to the campout, as well as an At Home Campout Kit and a capsule collection of merchandise.

Join the Global Camping Community

The Snow Peak At Home Campout was conceptualized last year amid the global pandemic and lockdown as a way to connect friends and outdoor enthusiasts over Memorial Day weekend, the traditional kick-off to the camping season. The inaugural event saw more than 3,000 registered campouts from 57 countries and six continents.

“In 2020, the Snow Peak At Home Campout brought us together to safely enjoy the outdoors during a time of crisis and isolation,” says Matt Liddle, chief operating officer at Snow Peak USA. “This year, we’re leaning into Snow Peak’s mission of restoring humanity through time outside, with a focus on creating an inclusive event that appeals to all. There’s no wrong way to camp at home. The Snow Peak At Home Campout is for anyone, anywhere. It’s simply a time to unplug and reconnect to nature and your loved ones, whatever that looks like for you.”

Registration for the 2021 At Home Campout opens on Monday, May 3, and participation is FREE. While supplies last, domestic (US) registrants will receive a complimentary At Home Campout Kit, which includes an activity book with recipes, games and puzzles, and paper airplane materials, as well as fire starters, and event-branded matches and stickers.

Join a global community of At Home Campers! After you register, search your postal code to find your campout on the map and see how many fellow campers are joining in the fun.

Snow Peak Supports City Kids Wilderness Project

This year, Snow Peak is offering a customized line of merchandise, with all the proceeds supporting the City Kids Wilderness Project. The organization provides enriching experiences in nature for Washington D.C. children, enhancing their lives, the lives of their families, and the greater community. The nonprofit supports program participants from sixth grade through high school graduation and as alumni, building resiliency and life skills through outdoor excursions.

“At City Kids, we come to the campfire to reflect and to form connections,” says Sarah Cryder, executive director of City Kids. “After a year of separation, we are excited for a summer of in-person campfires with our youth, and see Snow Peak’s At Home Campout as an intentional way to celebrate our return to the outdoors.”

City Kids Wilderness Project is a nonprofit organization founded on the belief that providing enriching life experiences for DC youth can enhance their lives, the lives of their families, and the greater community.
