Big Camp Out

Big Camp Out – all Dads & kids come camping

IBigCampOutt is exciting that in 2017 we have a number of events happening with our partners in WA.

The Big Camp Out in partnership with the Fathering Project last year was a roaring success, with 300 dads and kids camped out at Domain Stadium, and so we are doing it all again.

See all the photos of the action on the Outdoors October facebook page 

The Big Camp Out offers fathers the chance to spend quality one-on-one time with their child in a unique camping experience.

Camp under the stars at Domain Stadium, home of the West Coast Eagles & Fremantle Dockers, and make memories to last a lifetime. The Big Camp Out is a community partnership event between The Fathering Project and Outdoors WA.

GACO160sqrGo On, Get Camping

The Great Aussie Camp Out (GACO), brings together thousands of Australians for one big night under the stars. Whilst the national camp out is taking a rest – here in WA we still have plenty of camping opportunities during Outdoors October.


Camping and schools

Camping out on the school oval is a great way to build community and introduce camping to students. Why not talk to your P&C about having a school camp out in October. Download the GACO school flyer.


If you can’t camp out on the 14th that’s ok because you have the whole of Outdoors October to Go on and Get Outside.
