Next Indiana Campfires: White River Virtual Trek
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us on Sunday, June 28 for our Next Indiana Campfires experience. Through 360-degree videos and Zoom, we’ll “trek” along the White River and its tributaries. Along the way, we’ll read short texts and have conversation.
The Upper White River is Central Indiana’s most important waterway; its entire watershed spreads across 16 counties and is home to more than 1.6 million Hoosiers. Each and every person who lives in the watershed shapes the health of the White River—and in turn, it shapes our lives in subtle and significant ways.

To participate, you’ll need an internet connection and a willingness to follow directions! We’ll send you the Zoom link, the 360-degree videos and the readings ahead of time; when it’s time to start, you just open the Zoom link and we’ll guide you from there. (You do have to bring your own Upland beer, though!)
Spots are limited and pre-registration is required. Recommended for ages 12 and up. For optimal experience, we recommend attending via laptop or desktop computer. We recommend no more than two participants per Zoom connection.
This program is made possible in part by the generosity of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
This June, we’re reinventing our favorite outdoor program for the age of social distancing and you can join us (virtually). We’ve designed three ways to find renewal, refuge, relaxation or reflection in the weeks ahead: attending a virtual trek, watching or making a slow moment film, or using our Campfires anthology to plan a hike. Be sure to follow along on our social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and blog, too; we’ll be sharing short essays by Indiana writers, discussion prompts, literary quotes and more to help you think, read and talk until we can see you on the trail again.
