June 16-20, 2021     |     Register early before we sell out.


Camp Bear at Timberfell Lodge Men’s Resort & Campground has always been dedicated to bringing our community together for fellowship, but our highest priority remains to be the safety and health of our collective community. In the best interest of attendees, Camp Bear will NOT be held in September and be postponed to June 16-20, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 situation, we do not feel we can provide the full bear-run experience to attendees.  

 However, the campground will be hosting Timberfell Bear Takeover Sept 17-20, 2021 in its place, so there will be a bear-themed weekend during this time that follows State of Tennessee health guidelines. Timberfell Bear Takeover will have an amended schedule of outdoor-held activities where social distancing can be practiced. Additionally, t-shirt and leather vendors, and DJ Rexxstep will be performing poolside. There will be no run fee so we encourage you to attend Timberfell Bear Takeover instead by keeping your room reservations or pitching a tent.

 Below is the schedule for Timberfell Bear Takeover:

Thursday, Sept 17
Noon-6pm, Kickoff Pool Party with DJ Rexxstep
9:30pm – 12:30am, Welcome Mixer poolside with DJ Rexxstep
12:30am, Midnight Swim

 Friday, Sept 18
Noon-6pm, Pool Party with DJ Rexxstep
Noon-6pm, Vendor Booths
9-10pm, SHOTS PARTY (hosted by RV Park resident)
10pm – 1am, “Bearly There” Underwear Dance Party poolside with DJ Rexxstep

 Unfortunately, we are unable to host group meals, as well as activities in the Tavern which is temporality closed during the pandemic. The steam room will also remain closed but the dry sauna will be open. If you have a lodging room booked with Timberfell Lodge, they will still be providing food service in The Lodge for breakfast and supper.

 So, what does this mean for those registered for Camp Bear 2020? There are two options we are offering:

 (1) We will roll your Camp Bear registration over to June 2021 so you will be ready for next summer’s event! For those that choose this option, a special VIP event will be held during next year’s Camp Bear for those transferring their 2020 run pass to 2021.

 (2) If you plan on attending the Timberfell Bear Takeover this September, you will still have your room reservations. If you need to cancel, please contact the office at 800-437-0118. If this new date does not work for you, please email info@campbear.net for a refund by Sept. 15, 2020.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support of Camp Bear. We hope to see you for Timberfell Bear Takeover this September as well as the full bear-run event Camp Bear in June 2021!
