+ What is "A Weekend Beyond The Ordinary"?
Think of A Weekend Beyond The Ordinary as an extended weekend of camping meets curated music festival meets Pride meets modern hippie gathering with the added bonus of also raising funds for homeless LGBTQ youth.
+ Who is welcome?
Everyone 21+ is welcome! Gay, straight, bi, pan, trans, genderqueer, men, women, etc. Let's just enjoy a fun, colorful weekend of joy together!
+ Who is organizing the event?
The event is organized and hosted by a group of close friends and is held at The River's Edge campground in Dewy Rose, Georgia - about 40 minutes east of Athens, Georgia.
+ Is AWBTO a fundraising event?
Yes, we are raising funds for Lost-n-Found Youth. When we began this event several years ago, it was all about getting together with friends and having a good time. It’s a natural progression to build on the experience by making it a good time for a good cause—to provide crisis support, street outreach, transitional housing, and life skills training.
+ What organization is the charity for AWBTO 2017?
We are proud to announce Lost-N-Found Youth as our charity for A Weekend Beyond The Ordinary 2018! We have an aggressive, but attainable, fundraising goal of $10,000 for Lost-N-Found Youth.
+ Are there event fees for AWBTO?
We do not charge event fees for AWBTO. Attendees do need to pay the campground for membership and site/cabin/pass. We do, of course, welcome donations to help stand up AWBTO and help us give back to Lost-n-Found. You can donate here.
