➸IS THE EVENT KID FRIENDLY?

We consider the event to be super kid and family friendly and lots of children attend, however not everyone has the same opinions. Participants are encouraged to express themselves in a number of ways through various art forms & projects.

Public nudity may occur, although not common and we try to discourage it and redirect this energy to the privacy of their campsite if it occurs. We do NOT encourage or condone disorderly conduct, open sexual acts, or illegal drug use. There is a fine line between what is & isn't offensive & what you might consider offensive for your children others may not. DO NOT bring your children if you are concerned about them being subjected to behaviors you may deem unfit for them. DO BRING your children if you are ok with this statement and understand that we do our best to keep things PG.
