The weekend before Summer Solstice is a community and work weekend. You’re welcome to arrive as early as Friday; you can either help out around the campground and camp for free, or pay the daily camping rate ($15/day adult, $8/day kids 3-12).

We offer two preregistration prices, for the full week (June 17-23, $150 for adults, $75 for kids 3-12), and or the weekend (June 21-23, $70 for adults, $35 for kids). You can also show up at the gate and pay for the days you attend (gate prices are always slightly higher than preregistration prices).

If you have ideas for a workshop or programming that you would like to share, or for more information on offering a workshop, Please fill out a Workshop Application form. The deadline for Workshop applications is May 15th.

We offer a limited number of work barter slots, subject to approval.
