Pacific Northwest Leathermen’s Campout

A Portland area annual weekend camping retreat

August 3rd-6th, 2023


thank you to all who attended the
PNWLC 2022 August Weekend event
(our first year producing it) and
helping to make it the success that it was.

Pacific Northwest Leathermen’s Campout (PNWLC) is a weekend camping retreat held each Fall in the Portland area. Located on a private, secluded 15-acre forested property east of Oregon City, OR, the site is roughly 25 minutes south of Portland International Airport, an hour north of Salem and 45 minutes Southeast of Hillsboro. We strive to promote education and community-building among all male-identifying persons in the Pacific Northwest area.

This is a clothing-optional event where male-identifying (regardless of gender assigned at birth) persons who are 21+ years old can explore and enjoy a range of leather, kink, fetish, BDSM activities and classes. Our aim is to build strong community bonds through learning, socializing and play between all ages and experience levels. We foster a welcoming, safe, sane, consensual, and sex-positive environment. Body diversity is welcome at this event as men come in all shapes and sizes. We believe in social cohesion, a civil society, personal responsibility and a culture of mutual respect.

As a way to help build the community, give a sense of involvement and contribution, every attendee (including all PNWLC Committee members) is being asked to participate in a minimum of one chore shift during the PNWLC event. All of the PNWLC Committee pays the full registration fee and we are all volunteers. In order to make the weekend work smoothly, everyone is required to help out for at least 2 hours during the event. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

PNWLC will provide Saturday and Sunday continental style breakfast with coffee option as well as weekend snacks during the event. Lunch, dinner and beverages are the responsibility of the attendees (bring your own beverage and food, however, there will be an optional pre-order/pre-pay $5/bag per meal/per day food menu courtesy of the volunteer Catering Committee, see FAQ for more information).

Our goal is to provide leather, kink, fetish, BDSM education and community in the Pacific Northwest area
