The Vanlife App Launch Party Gathering


Our first weekend-long gathering was also the surprise launch of The Vanlife App, and we’re so thankful we could celebrate this moment together!

Between the campfires, live music with @moxiandloon, the workshops on minimalism, community and Leave No Trace principles, the amazing raffle, free reiki and massage sessions, and a gluten-free pancake breakfast, we are still feeling the good vibrations!

This event was a smashing success because of those who attended, our outstanding volunteers, core team and the companies who generously donated items for this 100% non-profit event.

Thank you to the companies who helped us raise $1,500 for @leavenotracecenter and the Santa Barbara @surfrider foundation by donating to the event: @banditwines and @sufferfestbeer provided delicious adult beverages; and we raffled off some incredible vanlife-friendly items from: @islesurfandsup, @moohahcreatives, @pamelasproducts, @blenderseyewear, @sdcampervans, @bestowedessentials @manateebags, @khalacloths, @highcampflasks, @omniasweden, and @carteohandmade.
