Big Canopy Campout 2020 will take place on 17th and 18th October
Welcome to the worlds largest coordinated canopy camping event, where participants share their stories and experiences whilst raising funds to protect forests around the world.
Trained and experienced climbers will be sleeping high in the trees, but you don’t need to be a climber to get involved. Many participants will simply be setting up hammocks near the forest floor for a night of forest camping.
We want everyone who cares about forests to get involved and join our passionate global community of tree climbers, scientists, adventurers and forest enthusiasts in showing appreciation for these incredible environments.
The 2020 Event
Despite restrictions easing in some parts of the world, local natural spaces have been vital during the lockdown. This year’s Big Canopy Campout will focus on the local and native trees and forests that have become so integral to our everyday lives.
Our chosen charity for 2020 is the incredible Bob Brown Foundation. They have played a fundamental role in building the Big Canopy Campout community from the beginning, with their inspiring and unrelenting work protecting the native forests of Tasmania. We are excited to be joining forces to campaign and protect native forests and ecosystems around the world.
Following the success of the 2018 Big Canopy Campout custom DMM carabiners, we’re kick starting our fundraising with two very special DMM Professional products in the limited-edition Big Canopy Campout colours.
In response to the ongoing Covid situation worldwide the Big Canopy Campout is following government guidance and recommendations as circumstances proceed. We would like to encourage everyone to do the same and use the Big Canopy Campout as a platform to share information about responsibly spending time in local natural spaces.
We may not be travelling very far for our campouts this year but let’s celebrate the places near and dear in a global tour of people, trees and the outdoors.
