Get your camping gear ready—we have news! Last week, the beloved Canadian festival Shambhala announced that their campgrounds will be opening up this spring for some long-awaited farm time.
2020 pushed the Shambhala crew to think outside the box.
In his announcement, festival founder, Jimmy Bundschuh, explained that the team wanted to give the farmily (Shambhala attendees), a way to return home. They worked all summer to rebuild a new campground! This campground may potentially be their best camping area yet, Jimmy says. “There is plenty of riverfront access, old-growth forest, and lots of shade. We are building some showers and washrooms and will have some services for RVs. The campground is over 30 acres so there is lots of room.” This all seems SO ideal. Who wouldn’t want to safely camp at the Shambhala farm near the beautiful Salmo River?
Your help is needed to make the Shambhala campgrounds feel like home!
Along with tours of the campground, farm, and offseason festival site, the crew wants your help in creating safe activities for the new addition. They even want to accommodate workshops, retreats, weddings, and family reunions once social distancing mandates lift. This could be a great way for farmily members to bring their loved ones to see what Shambhala is all about, minus the festival. Above all, they need help picking a name for the campgrounds. You can comment suggestions on their post, here!
In addition, they are looking for individuals to join the campgrounds team. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to become a host or help operate further building.
The Shambhala campgrounds will ensure that the festival can come back stronger than ever.
