Our next FTWNB (femme, transgender, women, nonbinary) campout is happening Saturday, May 11th. OCCP employee Kathryn will be leading riders, campers, and adventurers out to William B. Umstead for a sub-24-hour-overnight (s24o) campout. The site will be Umstead's Youth Camp.
This event is self-supported, meaning there is no support and gear vehicle, and all participants must pack and carry all their own gear and food. Come to the clinic to find out who might share their tent or camp stove with you! Youth Camp offers tent sites, plenty of hammock trees, a pit privy, fire ring, two picnic tables and running water.
The ride is approximately 15 miles to the campsite on paved greenway and crushed gravel. The ride will leave from the shop (212 E Franklin St. Raleigh, NC) at 5pm. Arrival to the campsite should be around 7-7:30pm. The ride back to the shop will be Sunday morning, between 9 and 10am. All participants in neighboring areas who are unable to meet at the shop are free to ride to the campsite and meet the group at Youth Camp.
If rain is in the forecast, the ride and campout will still occur unless severe storms are expected to happen or torrential downpours are expected to fall for the majority of the time while camping.
ALL PARK RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED. While dogs are allowed in the park, they are NOT permitted at campgrounds. Please dispose of food and trash in the proper receptacles.
If you have any questions regarding this event, e-mail us at
The event is FREE and open to ALL women, transgender, femme, and nonbinary folks.
