Welcome to

Hey Y’all – Let us tell you about The GatherThing, an exciting event in the heart of West Virginia that celebrates survival, bushcraft, and self-reliance. This unique gathering brings together outdoor enthusiasts, expert instructors, and like-minded individuals for a weekend of immersive learning and adventure. Whether you’re a seasoned outdoorsman or a curious beginner, you’ll find a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you thrive in the wilderness. Join us for an unforgettable weekend of skill-building, community-building, and outdoor fun!

Come to learn the latest outdoor skills and the skills of our forefathers. See everything our outstanding vendors have to offer; leather, canvas, nylon, tools, and on and on. Go hands-on in a workshop, at our axe-throwing range, or participate in a prize challenge. Get face-to-face with living history, cottage vendors, local survival schools, and instructors.

We’ll also teach you about self-reliance—how to preserve your own food and create tools that can get you through even the toughest of situations. We’ll cover all that plus more!

The Gatherthing will take place on Sept 5-8th at Bluestone State Park West Virginia. We hope to see you there!
