The Walking Dead family is a group of people brought together by a series that began 12 years ago. Made up of people worldwide, this group consists of many people who have never met in real life and only interact online or via text or chat. Those located near one another can often be found organizing meet-ups at conventions or other places to connect with this family, not one that is biological, but one they chose. The Camp is an event created by members of TWD Family as an event to connect with others, meet celebrities, and have a great time in a family-friendly atmosphere over Memorial Day weekend and other times throughout the year.

The Camp doesn’t only bring people together, but this event is an event that raises funds for charities. During the May 2021 event, The Camp and its attendees raised over $7,500 for Veterans K9 Solutions, a 501(c) (3) non-profit that trains shelter dogs to assist veterans with day-to-day needs. So, you not only get to have a fantastic weekend, you get to contribute to a very worthwhile cause.
