A Partner in Camping

“Columbia Sportswear is proud to support the Forest Preserves’ dynamic new urban camping program,” said Scott Welch, Global Corporate Relations Manager at Columbia.  “These incredible facilities allow groups, families and individuals to experience the wonder of the outdoors while serving as a model for other communities across the country.”
