About the Event
Natural Environment - Great Chatham County Camp Out
Sponsored by Central Electric
The Chatham County community was invited to spend the night camping at a designated campsite, in your own backyard, a homemade fort, and for one night only, at the B. Everett Jordan Dam!
Chatham 250 offered Camp Out Kits and FREE In-Person Camping at B. Everett Jordan Dam.
Camp Out Kits
Chatham 250 offered Camp Out Kits for our distance and at-home campers. These kits included smores supplies, a bandana, and a few surprises for our event sponsors. The kit also included a login information for livestream programming during the camp out.
In-Person Camping at B. Everett Jordan Dam
