No "Party", no Spiritual--Where?

Postby theCryptofishist » Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:09 pm

It just looks like there are a lot of party camps, and then there's the yoga and meditation camps. I don't want to be very altered, that's just asking for trouble one way or another, and I really don't like the meditation scene, and then there's chill which might be the offspring.
So, camps that are about something else...
Suggestions?

We plan to release some chinese lanterns inside our cosco shade shelter over at Camp Threat. Bring some marshmallows and beers.
Can pretty much assure you of a complete lack of spirituality, and that this will be no party.

Lonesomebri, I don't know whether it's you or Snowball, but I'm crushing on one of you. Probably whoever is the more evil of the two.

playa scrabble was fun in the 4:30 J neighborhood. Giant scrabble.

um, I'm camping at "Have a seat in the shade and I'll get you a cold soda" camp. We are a pretty low key group. Like to sit and talk and laugh. oh Fuck, I'm so dull. Looking forward to that so much!!!!

I'm just amazed that for over an hour I've gotten away with no one bringing up that I used to be in a bar camp.

Hey Roberto, bro-ham, we really need to party sometime, like, I feel we share some sort of deep spiritual connection.

You know, I've looked and looked by the trash fence and never found it. I found Perimeter, which is almost as good.

Get a haircut! Barber Ella camp had a block-long line last year, this year they're doubling in size and increasing their numbers, with plans to serve up awesome hairstyles starting Tuesday. Then there's HeeBeeGeeBee Healers and other camps offering massage therapy. I've seen posts from folks looking to stage Rocky Horror Show, and understand there are a few different movie theater camps (plus the black rock bijou way the fuck out in deep playa). The folks at Undercity (gamer and rpg themed camp) will be doling out quests.

You could also go on a Black Rock Bar crawl without necessarily feeling the need to get blackout drunk. Either ask for a smaller serving, something non-alcoholic, or just take a pass. Aside from the alcohol there's a ton of great atmosphere and inspiring themes.

My gf and a campmate also had a lot of fun last year doing what they called a 'G stroll' - they started at one end of the dial and worked their way all the way around on the G street. They had a blast and saw awesome stuff, I imagine the same would be true on any given street in the city.

If you're out at night, even if you aren't into the music they're playing, I highly recommend taking a stroll up and down the 2:00 and 10:00 spikes. There's both a people-watching aspect and a technology geek aspect that really is not to be missed. Even if you can't stand the music, it's fascinating to see the effort put forth, the level of detail (or lack thereof), and the spaces that these camps put together. They often get dismissed as clubs or slagged on as 'just being a sound camp' but some of these camps really elevate the concept.

You can also find a few interesting carnival and circus themed efforts out there as well. I want to say Dark Carnival Community Cafe, but I'm not sure if they're doing any performance-type stuff at their camp, and I know there are a lot more camps of that ilk out there.

Hope that helps, and re-reading I apologize not a whole lot of it is camp address-specific.

That's okay, Trilo. I wasn't completely serious, you know. (Or do you just take that for granted about me by now?)

Sure, you say, but come Thursday and you're sitting in a paperless portapotty, a fuzzy friend is gonna be looking pretty good.
The earth guardians desk it is! Right after my lamplighter shift, and before evening Mass.

When you arrive to BRC they give you a small book of who, when, and where. There's tons of cool stuff in there that's non-party/spiritual.

It is my understanding that Simon is leading some awesome yoga/meditation/chanting sessions at Center Camp every afternoon this year...not to be missed. Also rumored to be a nekkid-only event....

Gee, Fishy, if you don't like the news, go out and make some of your own.
But I think you're asking about where the cool original stuff is this year?

Dougly,
Look at my post 4 above you.

I guess I just got sick of people telling us how their camp was going to "party". So, being Fishy, I started one of my sideway glance threads at the practice...
