Due to the overwhelming amount of love towards our favorite local cancer organization, Cancer Connection, and due to the overwhelming feedback from previous campers, we are camping out again. And we are camping out again...in the cold. And this time, for more dramatic effect, we are camping out in even more coldness.
Starting 6AM Wednesday February 27th (Yes. FEBRUARY!) until at least 10AM the following morning, we will be back out on the old courthouse lawn in Northampton.
Information about the Campout, including the entertainment schedule, will be posted at WRSI.
Monte started the event 13 years ago as a publicity stunt and raised $5,000 camping out by himself. Over the years, together with the fundraising our amazing campers have done, he has helped Cancer Connection raise $523,000 and a priceless amount of awareness.
How can you help?
Donate! Give through a camper and help them meet their goal of raising $1000 per tent. Search through the "donate to a participant or team" section.
Stop by in person and enjoy the spectacle and the entertainment! Writing a check? Bringing your piggybank? Make your gift at the Campout!
The Campout is happening at the foot of the Old Courthouse downtown at the corner of Main and Gothic streets.
Together, we can support Monte as he works tirelessly to make it fun for people to give. It's the biggest fundraiser of the year for Cancer Connection. Every dollar raised helps a person facing cancer. Please make a donation to support this critical resource.
