Planning Committee Meeting Scheduled

The BRANA Campout Planning Committee will meet at 11 am on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 at 3513 Lairds Knob Drive, Keezletown, VA to continue the planning for the 37th Annual BRANA Campout.

We continue to seek support from strong local NA members who want to get involved with the Campout. Please refer to our Bylaws to learn about qualifications and nomination procedures.

BRANA 37 – Speakers Needed

We are looking for speakers who carry a strong NA message and can share their experience, strength and hope on the 12 Steps, sponsorship, service work, their relationship with a Higher Power and the miracle of one addict helping another.

BRANA Campout does not pay travel expenses, lodging or in any way compensate any individual that speaks at our events. We feel that the message of recovery should be one that is given freely. We are consistent in that policy as it also pertains to speaker recordings, offering them as a free download on our site.

The 37th annual BRANA Campout will be held July 20 – 22, 2018 at Natural Chimneys Campground, Mount Solon, Virginia

Campout Journal

This year, as we have done in past years, we handed out a Journal to be passed among campers for them to record their experiences during the weekend and the Journal would be returned to a Campout Planning Committee member at the end of the event. This year’s Journal was not returned and we are wondering where it might be. If anyone out there has it or knows where it is, please reply to this post or contact us here.

Thanks!
