To create a conscious family friendly gathering kicking off the summer season in the Colorado high country while supporting local and international non-profits dedicated to environmental, EDUCATIONAL and humanitarian causes.

Campout For The Cause was created in 2009 by Scotty Stoughton to provide a platform for Colorado and touring musicians, yogis and artists to perform in a magical colorado setting while bringing awareness and support to our sponsored non-profits.  Diversity in the music and sustainability in the event are paramount to our philosophy as well as a community of responsible and respectful festival participants.

Following a trip to Haiti shortly after the devastating 2010 earthquake, Stoughton was inspired by the non political/bureaucratic work done by All Hands Volunteers.  In the years since, Campout for the Cause has supported All Hands Volunteers, The Realm of Caring, Educational Foundation of Eagle County, American Rivers, The Eagle Valley Land Trust, the Global Children's Alliance and The Eagle River Watershed Council Big Hands Big Heart.

Scotty, through WinterWonderGrass and Bonfire Entertainment, continues to support All Hands & Hearts - formally All Hands Volunteers.
