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!

36th Annual BRANA Campout Wrap-up

We have wrapped up yet another BRANA Campout event. In spite of some thunderstorms and showers at inopportune times, we feel that with the contributions from our speakers and all who attended, we were successful in helping to carry a message of recovery.  We had 362 registered campers in attendance, representing 2957 years of clean time. Campers came from 11 states including: Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Clean-time Countdown at BRANA 36

We will begin the planning for the 37th Annual BRANA Campout in the upcoming months. We are looking forward to the challenge and hope to see you all on the third weekend of July 2018.

36th Campout-Speaker MP3 Recordings

Beginning in 2014, at the 33rd Annual Campout we recorded our four Main Speakers. We have continued this tradition going forward and are happy to post our speakers from the 36th Campout here on our site. As a free service to the NA Community we are providing MP3 recordings for playback on this site along with the ability to download a copy of each recording. Just right click (long press for mobile) on the speaker name to download and save. You can play them directly from the site by selecting the speaker and clicking on the the play button. We would like to extend our appreciation to all of the speakers for sharing their experience, strength and hope.

We look forward to seeing you all next year,
