Theme Camps

themecampsA theme camp is a group of participants that use their camp-site to enhance the landscape and experience of Lakes of Fire for the entire event community. Playful and participatory, a good theme camp will create an ambience, a visual presence, and provide a communal space or activity.

Criteria for registration:

  1. Camps must be interactive. They should include activities, events or services within their camps and they must be available to the entire Lakes of Fire community.
  2. Camps should be visually stimulating and have an inviting design, while maintaining safety and MOOP regulation.
  3. Camps must be neighborly. This includes keeping sound within set limits, controlling where camp generators vent exhaust, and being receptive to solving any disputes that arise.

Theme Camps must register to have reserved placement. Camps that plan to have amplified sound must register their camp AND their sound system. Before registering, please visit our Sound Policy page. Please visit the Key Dates and Registration Form page to register your theme camps and amplified sound systems. Unregistered theme camps with sound systems are not allowed at the event. A sound system must either be part of an art car, theme camp, or registered art piece.


To get the word out about your workshop or theme camp can be listed in the What Where When. Please list your workshops in time for the WWW deadline. The WWW deadline and form is available on the Key Dates and Registration Form page.
