Included with our music and yoga content, Campout has developed an itinerary of truly authentic workshops for attendees to enjoy, all included in the ticket price. From sustainability to belly dancing and hula hooping to river surfing, Campout has a little bit of something for everyone.
Check out the 2018 workshops below!
River surfing is the sport of surfing a wave in a river. With the combination of moving water, constriction of water flow, and gradient in the riverbed, standing waves are formed and create a smooth face of water on which to surf on. The water continually moves downstream, and the surfer moves neither upstream or downstream, leaving them free to surf and carve in a stationary position on the standing wave. With the correct equipment and guidance, one can enjoy an “endless wave” with a similar feeling to ocean surfing. Buena Vista offers multiple river surfing waves on the Arkansas River, right in town. Participate in a river surfing workshop and you will be shredding in no time!
AcroYoga can seem exciting and a little intimidating, but meet its softer side with restorative flying and Thai massage. In ‘lunar’ or restorative flying, the lifted partner is passive, while the base is strong, stacked and (fairly) still. This allows for the flying partner to receive maximum traction and release with gravity. The base learns smart body mechanics that translate to your yoga practice and movement patterns. After fun and relaxing lunar flight, we wind our way to the ground for Thai massage, ‘the lazy man’s yoga’. No partner or experience necessary; come learn to base, fly, spot and relax in community.
Exploring the Long Trails of America
In this workshop we will explore the many long trails that run through North America, connecting National Parks and wild places and focus on the formidable task of livin on trail for 4-6 months. We will cover the logistical and psychological aspects to be expected. Topics will include the differences between thru-hiking and section hiking, “Hike your own hike”, common trail ailments, finding the perfect gear for you and how to resupply effectively. I will also recount personal experiences interacting with nature, epic adventures, and the many characters who I have met along the way.
