In 2009, Laura Brunow Miner curated a group of artists to spend a weekend camping and collaborating at China Camp State Park just north of San Francisco.

Year three of Phoot Camp, 2011, lands us in Marfa, Texas for a hootenanny at the local church.

The Ashokan Retreat Center in Olivebridge, New York hosted one of the most successful Phoot Camps to date. Teaming up again with Lauren Randolph, we took inspiration from Wet Hot American Summer and again were blessed with the whole crew's enthusiasm for bringing their role to life. 

Assistant Director Chad Nicholson, seen taking one for the team off the tip of the canoe, also proved invaluable for making it all come together.
