Camp Carpe Diem 2022

Seize the day and connect with fellow nomads this October in Brevard, NC.


Camp Carpe Diem is back! The event is scheduled for October 20 – 23, 2022 in the Asheville/Brevard, NC area (AKA “the land of waterfalls”), and we are excited!

We love the welcoming spirit of this event because it embraces how RV life is full of surprises – and encourages attendees to try new things while making friendships with fellow nomads who understand the lifestyle.

In a nutshell, CCD gets you out of the RV and into awesome things like mountain biking, brewery tours, fitness sessions and more. So, put down the laptop, and get ready for adventure!

Here’s what you need to know about CCD 2022:



Camp Carpe Diem 2022 is happening at Rutledge Lake RV Park Resort the weekend of Thursday, October 20 – Sunday, October 23. The area can only be described as an epic playground for biking, hiking, and photography. And if you love craft beer, then this is where you want to be!



Your guides for this exhilarating weekend are the owners of Living a Stout Life (LASL) and  The Virtual Campground (TVC). LASL is a craft beer travel and adventure lifestyle project guiding travelers to beer and adventures, founded by full-time RVers April and Ken Pishna. TVC is a place for like-minded spirits to explore and find joy in all things RVing, founded by full-time RVers Debra and Barry Benton.



The full agenda is still coming together and possible activities include, but are not limited to: local brewery tours and excursions, mountain biking, Jeep tours, photography workshops, hiking, cooking, rig tours, chats on local history, RVing and travel lessons, social happy hours, and community dinners complete with s’mores. There is something for everyone!



They had us at s’mores! Keep in mind that you should grab tickets asap. CCD is not a conference or rally where you’ll get lost in the crowd of hundreds of people. It’s a unique weekend with like-minded folks and limited spaces, so it will sell out! Experience adventure in North Carolina with good fun, good food and drink – and amazing people. What are you waiting for? Get your tickets and seize the day!
