Welcome campers, players, and newbie’s alike! We are so excited for the first-ever Dirtybird Campout East! To ensure you have the best time possible, take a look at our camping tips and cover your bases. We understand camping can be hard work and a bit confusing at a new venue, so don’t be afraid to reach out online or on-site if you need any help.
The flock is growing every day, so get excited to embrace all of your bird homies old and new! The most important packing tip is to bring your good vibes, unique style and serious moves and get ready to unleash them all on the dance floor at Campout. Get ready to fly with the flock and boogie till you drop!
Here are some packing tips so you can successfully eat, sleep, boogie, repeat…
Keeping Yourself In Check
• ID and printed ticket
• Clothes for all weather occasions – Florida gets wet! Some prepared with rain gear, and layers for for warm days & cold nights.
• SOS (Save Our Skin): sunscreen, sunscreen and more sunscreen. Plus, bring a hat!
• Insect repellent & topical itch cream – the bugs are real out here!
• Bandana, scarf and sunglasses to protect yourself against any dust
• Comfortable shoes (you’ll thank yourself later): boots, sneakers and other closed toed shoes are ideal. Pro-tip: extra socks for nighttime!
• Toiletries + shower shoes: for the not-so-dirty campers.
• Your own unique style!
Resting at Campout is Crucial to Rallying
• Tent + hammer or mallet and heavy duty stakes!

Camper Home & Kitchen Essentials
