With the success the Queer Fam Fund (QFF) over the past two years, we are excited to continue the QFF for Honcho Campout 2020. For those unfamiliar with QFF, it was established to share a weekend with those who are underrepresented or may not have the means to attend without financial assistance. Each year our goal is to assist more recipients than the year prior while also growing the program to include more people from the queer community. Thanks to your contributions in 2018 we were able to sponsor 15 members of our Queer Fam, and in 2019 we took 30! We hope to up that number to 40, at minimum, this year.
Taking into consideration our intention to shape the queer landscape of this Campout, it is done with genuine consideration for inclusivity. We are at our best when we are intentional and inclusive— meaningfully serving our community by lifting each other up.
The QFF will help cover an individual’s travel to camp and provide food and shelter for the duration of their stay. The package is valued at over $500 per recipient and includes:
Ticket to Campout for all chosen recipients (this is Honcho's contribution to the fund).
Travel Stipend (varies): This will be used to help cover travel costs (bus ticket, portion of an airline ticket, gas money, etc.). We understand that everyone has different circumstances, we will try to accommodate everyone as best as possible. A shuttling service from Pittsburgh and DC is also in the works.
Meal Plan: We are excited to partner with Kate Romane of Black Radish Catering for the third year. The Meal Plan is a healthy and delicious. It includes brunch and dinner, Thursday thru Sunday. Both meat and veggie options will be available; special diets are taken into consideration.
Camping Gear: Basic Camping Package from Outdoors Geek is provided which includes a two-person tent, 2 sleeping bags, and 2 sleeping pads. All tents and equipment are set up upon your arrival. Please note that camping gear is optional, you are more than welcome to use your own
Camping Fee: This fee, which all campers pay as part of their General Admission Ticket, is covered.
$10 from every General Admission Ticket is directly given to the QFF!
