Thank you for your interest in attending this year's Great Outdoor Beaver Meeting. Glad to hear from you. I love hearing from other A.A.'s desiring to make their first trek to Beaver as I did over 25 years ago, or Sober members of our Fellowship returning to this unique Campvention of Alcoholics Anonymous after a few years away.
Elsewhere on this site, please find the Registration Flyer (*) for our 2022 Event to be held Thursday, September 1 through Sunday, September 4 during the Labor Day Weekend in Beautiful Beaver, Utah. The Flyer contains phone numbers for Committee Members, and full contact info for the many Hotels, Motels and Campgrounds in and around Beaver, so you may plan ahead and make reservations for your stay. ((FLYER AVAILABLE APRIL 1))

The Great Outdoor Beaver Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous is held every Labor Day Weekend in the beautiful and friendly sub-alpine Community of Beaver, Utah. The entire Campvention is staged Outdoors a few miles up the canyon from the town at about 6,000 Feet Above Sea Level in a green valley surrounded on three sides by 11,000+ Foot high mountains. Beaver, Utah is located right on Interstate 15 about 500 miles from the Los Angeles area and about 3 hours north from Las Vegas, Nevada, or about 200 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah.
The area surrounding Beaver boasts National Forest land, lakes for fishing, hundreds of miles of hiking and ATV trails, State Park land, a National Monument at 10,000 feet above Sea Level (Cedar Breaks N.M.), TWO Spectacular National Parks (Bryce and Zion Canyon) and some of the most diverse and awe-inspiring countryside anywhere in The Great American West.
Festivities will begin this year on Thursday in the late afternoon with Registration and Meetings and continue through Sunday around noon and include Speaker Meetings, Marathon Meetings, a Nature Hike, Motorcycle Events and bottomless cups of Coffee. All of this and more for a modest registration fee of only $25.00 per Adult (Pre-Registration until early August is only $15). Also planned are a highly unique Golf Tournament, a Community B-B-Q Meal and a selection of Event T-Shirts and Sweatshirts at reasonable prices. Even the Motels and Campgrounds in town offer great rates and the entire Community seems to welcome us with open arms each and every Labor Day Weekend as if we were long-lost relatives coming back home for a Family Reunion.
If you are able to arrive in town early, you are welcome to be a part of the set-up crew on Thursday morning. We meet at the Beaver Canyon Campground (see flyer for address) a little after 9 am local time (MST) or at the Racetrack at about 11 am. If other areas of Service are more to your liking, we always need assistance with Registration, Commemorative Sales, and making and serving the FREE Coffee that we serve throughout the Campvention. You are welcome to Be Of Service in any manner that is good for you. We can offer you more info on that as we get closer to the Event.
We even have a California Planning Committee that meets once each month from February through August at various locations across Southern California to help plan the Event. There is also a Utah Planning Committee that meets in Beaver and Cedar City, and a Nevada Planning Committee that meets in Las Vegas and Henderson. As these Planning Meeting dates are calendared, we can forward the info to you. You are welcome to join the Committee if you like and help to plan our Event.
Again, please download and print our Registration Flyer. (*)
Please contact us if you have further questions regarding the Campvention itself or the surrounding area of Southern Utah. I travel there from Southern California about five times each year and can clue you in on some really great things to do on your vacation days before, during and after this awesome Sober Event.
Each year, about 600 of us descend upon the town of Beaver, Utah to share our Sobriety and our experience, strength and hope with each other. I certainly encourage you to consider the possibility of trudging the road this year and joining us over Labor Day Weekend. It will be an experience you will not soon forget.
Thank you for letting me Be Of Service.
