Where Black Meets Camping: Urban Camp Weekend

By Rachel George


There’s a myth that Black people don’t enjoy camping outdoors. I know what you’re thinking, going camping means you’ll be subjected to snakes, enormously large insects, and sleeping in a tent, but that’s not all it is. Imagine you and your friends in an open space full of tents with games, food, an open bar, and outdoor karaoke. You’ve just envisioned the best camping experience ever with Urban Camp Weekend.

Looking to change your experience with outdoor camping, Urban Global Events hosts the largest camping experience in the world for Black campers. This October, thousands of black professionals will gather in the backwoods of New Braunfels, Texas to enjoy nature for a weekend of fun and relaxation. All hot girls and boys are welcomed.
