BRANA 39 Postponed to 2021

Due to the inherent problems with holding a large event during the Covid-19 pandemic and after consultation with Augusta County Parks and Recreation, the BRANA Campout Planning Committee has made the responsible decision to postpone BRANA 39 to July 2021. We are in agreement with the County that with all the issues with social distancing, sanitation and the real danger of exposure to the virus in large groups, the best and safest decision is to postpone the event until next year. This is a disappointing development and we have had to practice some acceptance and acknowledge our powerlessness in this situation.

Refunds: We are working with our event management company (Cvent) to get full refunds to all of those who have registered. Registrants do not need to do anything at this time. We will handle the refund process.

We are looking forward to next summer! BRANA 39 will be held on July 16 thru 18, 2021 at Natural Chimneys Campground, Mt. Solon VA

Online Registration Activated- 39th Annual Campout

Online registration for the 39th Annual BRANA Campout – The Promise of Freedom – has been activated.

The 39th Annual BRANA Campout will be held on July 17 –19, 2020 at Natural Chimneys Campground in Mount Solon, VA (map).

Online registration is $60 per person (children are free).

We regret that the fee has increased by $10 for the weekend from last year. We have faced increasing lease fees (we lease the entire campground and stage) over the last 3 years and need to make this change to cover our costs and ensure that the event goes forward in the future.
