Event is a blending of 3 events into one great day: Get Outdoors Day, NW National Park Family Day, and the Fort Vancouver Brigade Encampment, an 1840’s fur trade encampment re-enactment. There will be 50-60 booths with hands-on recreation activities such as climbing, fishing, dutch oven cooking, camping, hiking, orienteering, Frisbee golf, and archery. This year's event also coincides with Flag Day, and the Freedom 5K put on by EnergyEvents! Since Get Outdoors Day is a nationwide fee-free day, the Fort will be open and free to the public all day.
