Camp BKB: An Earth Day Festival

"Presenting sponsors Clif Bar and High Brew will present their green and environmental philosophies and practices through our Climb for Sustainability (Clif) and For Those Who Do Good Clean Up Park Activation (High Brew). The Clif Bar Climb for Sustainability initiative will plant trees to American Forests for each climber that gets to the top of their routes. The "For Those Who Do Good" campaign spotlights the do-gooders, creators, and innovators of the High Brew community. High Brew is expanding that concept and getting our attendees out in the field cleaning up the following local parks: Thomas Greene Park (Gowanus location), Mary Bartleme Park, and Hunters Point Park...."

A festival to save the world...
Brooklyn Boulders, an indoor rock-climbing and mixed-use lifestyle facility is hosting a 3-day festival at facilities in Chicago, NYC, and Boston in celebration of Earth Day, from Friday April 21 through Sunday April 23.  Clif Bar & Company and High Brew Coffee will be our national presenting sponsors presenting their green philosophies and sustainable practices at all four BKB locations.
Camp BKB will be an interactive, experiential and educational event and will feature live performances by Small Black, Tanlines (DJ Set), Santah, and Bearstronaut; green workshops and demos focusing on sustainability, eco-fashion, and zero-waste from partners Clif Bar, High Brew, Boxed Water, and Lush Cosmetics, vegetarian dinners and happy hour sponsored by Sierra Nevada, family and youth workshops in activism and more.
VIP ticket-holders will experience an overnight sleepover with campfire stories, s'mores from Whole Foods, a quiet meditative climb in the morning, and a Bluegrass Brunch the next morning.  Other activities include presentations by March for Science, sign-making events for the march, and sign re-purposing workshops post-march. 10% of all ticket sales are going directly to The National Parks Foundation.

National Events Manager Tim Ryan has stated that: "Camp BKB was conceived to connect our community through an indoor camping experience, story-sharing, and sleepover.  As the political climate has been changing, we were compelled to tie the event with a greater cause: to promote the outdoor industry and improve our community's lives outside our walls. At the end of the day - we hope our engaging activities and this experience will be a first step towards saving the world and making it a better place."
