2019 Florida Skoolie Swarm Feb 14th-18th

Second annual Florida Skoolie Swarm. February 14th - 18th.

Join together for a long weekend of skoolie socializing. This year we'll make camp at Sertoma Youth Ranch at 85 Myers Road, Brooksville FL.

This is a gathering for skoolie owners. This is not an event open to the public. It is not a show. There is no plan other than making new friends. Last year we had a potluck dinner Saturday night and service Sunday morning. It was nice, we'll do that again.

Contact skoolieswarm@gmail.com or message us here with questions and to let us know if you will be attending. Will you need water and electric?

We are in contact with the campground and they prefer that you contact us with questions and # of people attending.

$15 for primitive camping per night.
$25 for water and electric per night
You don't pay us, you will be paying at the campground after your stay. We are just campers who happened to be camping in a group.

There are bath houses with showers.

There are no reservations for this gathering.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but will need to be on a leash at all times. As always please clean up after your pet.

Please be respectful of the other patrons to the park. Please respect the patrons who are using the small pavillion. We will not have access to the pavillion.

Feel free to share the event. About 25 Vehicles were there last year and here was probably space for double that.sketch-1538423619779.jpeg0218181300b.jpeg

Wait, you're going to CAMP? WHO ARE YOU?

We're planning to attend. Hopefully in the Wanderlounge. There won't be much left of the Sport Bus by then!
