World Wild Fur Camp is a furry camp in Ohio, USA led by Chairmen Al CaBone and Vice Chairman Hund The Hound. Its inaugural weekend was October 5-7, 2018, at the YMCA Camp Campbell Gard in Hamilton, with around 50 attendees.[1]

The fourth iteration of the camp took place over November 10-12, 2023, with a medieval and high fantasy theme dubbed "Quest for Camp Campbell-Lot." World Wild Fur Camp has been confirmed to return for the 2024 season with an 80s Slasher Film theme dubbed "Furries of the Corn," dates TBD.

Features[edit]

Potential events mentioned - some staffed by the YMCA - include "fishing, archery, nightly raves, access to the guild market, the camp store, zip lining, shows, open mic, campfires, night raves, trick-or treat walk [and] petting zoo".[2] The "guild market" acts as a rough equivalent of an Artists' Alley and Dealer's Den, with paid one-day spots.[2]

The event has a system of guilds to organize attendees for games,[3] although in the first instance this led lead to imbalances due to variable counts and age ranges.[1]

Registration[edit]

Weekend tickets for World Wild Fur Camp are inclusive for a camper's stay, including cabin space with bathrooms and showers, three meals provided daily by YMCA camp staff, and access to a host of YMCA sponsored events throughout the campgrounds. All campers are welcome to stay shortly after Closing Ceremonies for an ice cream social before leaving camp.

VIP tickets are available for an upgraded experience that includes a special VIP badge, access to a dinner with the Guest of Honor and WWFC Staff, and a photo shoot provided by Hund the Hound.

Camp Mascot[edit]

Slender Fox

Slender Fox, in a similar vein to Slenderman, is rumored to lurk in the woods surrounding the campgrounds. He is the epitome of the worst representation of the furry fandom. Legends state that if he catches you in the woods he will steal your fursuit. If you don't have a fursuit, he will instead beg you for free art. If you are not an artist, then he drags you deep into the forest, never to be seen again.
