Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga is hosting its seventh annual “Camp Out” on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 5 p.m. through Sunday, Nov. 8 at 7 a.m. on UTC’s campus at the Lupton Library Parking Garage!

This year’s Camp Out features our traditional entertainment including our namesake Box City Challenge in which teams envision and create their own Box City living spaces.  Of course there will be a scavenger hunt, games, music and crafts, and volunteers will be on hand to serve up sandwiches, coffee, hot chocolate, sodas, popcorn, and fruit all through the evening and into the night. In the morning campers will eat a light breakfast. Police security will be present during the entire event.

Youth groups, families, volunteers and other campers will learn what it’s like to be homeless by building their own cardboard box living space in Box City (or just by bringing their own camping equipment), spending the night outdoors in an “urban campground” setting and eating food similar to what is provided to the homeless in our community at a soup kitchen.

Prizes will be awarded for the best box cities built by a group or individual and for the most pledges raised by a group.

Ticket costs:
• Youth, Church, Scout, or other groups – $10 per person
• Individual campers – $25 per camper
• Families or groups of up to four people – $50
• Each additional camper with a family or group of four- $10
• No pets, please
