Beer Camp

THE FUN STUFF: Some of our twists on traditional day camp activities.

  • Ropes course - It’s pretty high up, and pretty far out.
  • Rock climbing wall - It’s massive, but you’re fearless, right?
  • Keg bowling - Eh, it’s more like “keg chucking,” but you’re still bowling over some pins.
  • Human foosball - Start recruiting your team, or draft free agents once you’re there.
  • Corn hole - Because this is one of our favorite sports.
  • Arts & crafts - Tap into your creative side.
  • Hammock lounge stations - Naptime is back and better than ever!
  • Silent disco - Grab some headphones and dance to the beats.

ATTIRE: Should you wear a costume? Uuuuh…yeah!

  • Group Costume Contest - Do you and your crew want free tickets to Beer Camp 2020 and a super sweet trophy to show off? Well, come up with a rad costume theme! Post your group photo at the festival to Instagram with #beercamp and tag @sierranevada to enter. Let’s keep it clean, people, but have fun and show your Beer Camp spirit!
  • Awards will be handed out during the festival.
