Founded on a Vision, Rooted in Passion:

Our Journey as a Thriving Business

Once upon a time, nestled amidst the vibrant landscape of the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia), there existed a place unlike any other – Camp Pineapples. Like the tropical fruit it was named after, Camp Pineapples began as a seed of an idea, patiently nurtured and cultivated over time.

Legend has it that they say it takes two years to grow a pineapple, and for the past two years, Camp Pineapples has been quietly sprouting, blossoming, and offering its warm hospitality to the festival community of the DMV. From its humble beginnings, Camp Pineapples emerged as a beacon of camaraderie, fun, and inclusivity, drawing festival-goers from far and wide to its welcoming embrace.

As the camp continued to flourish, so did its vision. Recognizing the importance of promoting harm reduction education and mental health awareness in festival settings, the founders of Camp Pineapples embarked on a new journey. They knew that to make a lasting impact, they needed to sow the seeds of change on a broader scale.

And so, with a sense of purpose and determination, Camp Pineapples embarked on its next chapter. Armed with the wisdom gained from its two-year journey, the camp took a bold step forward and established itself as an LLC. This strategic move enabled Camp Pineapples to harness the necessary resources to expand its reach and fulfill its mission of providing harm reduction education and mental health awareness to festivals and events far and wide.

As the sun sets on each day at Camp Pineapples, casting a golden glow over its vibrant community, one thing remains certain – the spirit of hospitality, growth, and transformation continues to thrive within its hallowed grounds. And with each passing year, Camp Pineapples stands as a testament to the power of patience, perseverance, and the unwavering commitment to making the world a better, safer place for all.

Camp Pineapples boasts a team of passionate volunteers, each with over a decade of collective experience in organizing and managing events and festivals. With a diverse range of backgrounds and expertise, our team is committed to ensuring that every aspect of Camp Pineapples’ operation runs smoothly and efficiently.

One of the cornerstones of our operation is our dedicated harm reduction certified individuals. Equipped with specialized training and knowledge, they play a crucial role in promoting a safe and supportive environment for all festival attendees. From providing essential resources and support to implementing harm reduction strategies, our team works tirelessly to prioritize the well-being of our community.

In addition to our core team, Camp Pineapples is proud to collaborate with a roster of experts in various fields. From mental health professionals to substance use educators, we regularly host seminars and workshops led by these specialists. By offering valuable insights and practical guidance, these sessions contribute to our mission of fostering a culture of safety, awareness, and education within the festival community.
