Join us at Camp Austin360

CampAustin360logoCamp Austin360 is not a place, but a call to action for seeking new adventures all summer long. Our inspiration came from the various camps for adults that have popped up in recent years, and our own desire to fill up our fun buckets.

The Austin360 staff put together 50 suggestions for adults to start a quest to reclaim the spirit of summer and exploration. We’ll have more ideas throughout the summer, and we’ll share your stories and photos. We want to know if you discovered a new passion for art, finally went to the swimming hole you’ve always wondered about, or reconnected with old friends over good drinks on a long, lazy afternoon.

Use #CampAustin360 on social media to share what you do, and we’ll do the same.

We’re taking back the summer: Let’s get started!
