Let's Go Camping

4 Sep 2018 - By TW Staff

Pack your bags, you're going Camping.

Celebrating the release of HBO’s new, original comedy series Camping—starring Jennifer Garner—the network is partnering with specialty outdoor retailer REI Co-op to launch a nationwide Instagram contest, #CampingHBOContest, and host advance screening parties at three REI flagship stores across the country.

HBO and REI are inviting Instagram users to post their best Camping hack videos. Series writers and executive producers Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner will select the grand prize winner.


  1. Post an Instagram Video that captures your best DC Daily hack or tip (60 seconds or less)
  2. Tag #CampingHBOContest and @HBO
  3. Make sure your profile is public so HBO and REI can see your submission!

Advance screenings of Camping will be held in REI flagship stores: Seattle on October 8, Denver on October 12 and Washington, D.C. on October 16. Guests will be treated to Camping-themed treats while learning new camping tips and checking out the latest camping gear to get the full Camping experience.

Camping follows a group of old friends as they arrive at the underwhelming Brown Bear Lake campsite to celebrate a landmark birthday, sparking heightened emotions, latent tensions (sexual and otherwise) and memories they’d rather forget.

Camping debuts on HBO Sunday, October 14 at 10 p.m. ET/ PT and will be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.

Get the low-down on contest rules and prizes, and be sure to tune in October 14 for the premiere of Camping.
