2013 Camp Out Info:
FIFTH ANNUAL BOX CITY CAMP OUT PITCHES ITS TENT ON NOVEMBER 16 AT THE 1ST TN PAVILION
Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga is hosting its fifth annual Box City Camp Out to Stamp Out Family Homelessness on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 5 p.m. through Sunday, Nov. 17 at 7 a.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
In addition to registering on the website, attendees can also show their support and start a Camp Out team through Crowdrise ™ a fund raising site. It only takes seconds to start and is a fun way to ask family, friends and co-workers to support your efforts for Family Promise. You can join the Family Promise Camp Out team here (or create your own team to benefit Family Promise of Greater Chattanooga): http://www.crowdrise.com/CampOut2013
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 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.
The Camp Out also features entertainment like a scavenger hunt, games, music and crafts. Volunteers will be on hand to serve up sandwiches, coffee, hot chocolate, sodas, popcorn and fruit during the Camp Out. In the morning campers will eat a light breakfast. Police security will be present during the entire event.
