The 7th Annual Skoolie Swarm will be held once again in Melrose, Florida. This is not a festival, it’s a chance to come and relax with the skoolie community. One attendee recently said, “It’s like a family reunion with only the good cousins!” Just like at previous Swarms we will have epic potluck dinners, community breakfasts, kickball games, costume party, informative talks, movie nights and more!

In February 2023 we had over 240 homes in attendance. You do not have to have a bus to join us at the Skoolie Swarm, you just have to have the skoolie spirit! There were skoolies, vans, box trucks, tent campers, vintage RVs, campers and more.

There are full bathrooms, a commercial kitchen we can use if we keep it clean, porta potties in the area where we all park, a pool, zipline for kids, lake for use with kayaks or paddle boards and ultimate frisbee course. The location is located right beside a nice rails to trails bike path.

The exact location in Melrose, Florida will be sent to you after you register. Please do not share the location with anyone else. Anyone who arrives without being registered will be turned away. We will once again be allowing daytrippers to come and meet the community.

Practice your offgrid skills. There are no electric hookups. Generators are allowed. Loud generators will be asked to park in their own area. Firewood will be available for purchase on site.
