Effective 5/2014 Meeting Tonight

We are meeting tonight to fill in some gaps. Connect through the Facebook page or the admin here for answers.

 

MEMBERSHIP /  CAMPER APPROVAL – UPDATED

It is vital to be engaged and acculturated (knowledgeable of the 10 principles and know how they apply) with the camp and the culture. Joining us means you are agreeing to abide by the rules we setup with a focus on community and contentedness the camp represents. You also have to engage with us at meetings so we know who you are and visa versa.

Note: we have started meetings already and do not expect to have a full compliment of campers until mid to late July. Right now the max is set for 20 people. Benefits include:

Nightly Dinner | 24/7 Pantry Access | Shower | Super Amazing Community Members!

CAMP RULES

This camp is community driven and only happens when everyone is invested in the safety and well being of the camp itself.

– Drama Free Zone: Issues? any decision by Toaster or Knot-O are final: we will make every effort to keep everyone satisfied. **NOTE** There were no problems in 2013 and we hope to keep it the same.

– 1 Dinner Meal per Camper: Sunday to Sunday: first come first serve (see more below)

– Fees are relative: see below (updated 5/2014)

– Peace and Quiet: this is a safe and sane camp so if you want to have an orgy this is not the space to have it

– Trash Management: everyone one is responsible (see below)

– Camp Party: Wednesday evening a party will be hosted by the camp

This is a spiritual camp by Theme, not a requirement by those who plan on camping with us. In fact, you do not have to participate in anything except the well-being and safety of the camp  –  AND – the camp party.

WHITE BOARD: A white board will be in the pantry with assignments /  volunteer roles. It will also be a place for messages and announcements to camp members internally and externally. (Toaster has this and pens)

  • Scott aka Toaster: Lead producer and manager
  • Scott aka Knot-O: 2nd in command and LNT manager
  • Kitchen Manager: TBD

EARLY ENTRY

If you are given an early entry pass you are expected to be present for build. You may also be asked to help our neighbors. We requested 8 passes and are still pending approval: July.

CAMP FEE

This camp is community driven and will happen as each participant brings elements of the camp contained in the wish list; a living document under the tab at the Facebook page. What you bring to the table reduces any camp fee; negotiate that with your leads.

No $ Fee: If you can bring infrastructure for the camp as see on the wish list.
https://www.facebook.com/notes/sun-guardians/2014-wish-list/618256801529730

Fee $: Will get you a space to camp, water, access to the food pantry, and shower access (bring your own self cleaning supplies; earth friendly). Send $ to scotters1964@hotmail.com via paypal.

– $100.00 / adult in an RV (must follow all RV guidelines AND participate in camp scenario)

or

– $120.00 / adult in a tent even if sharing the tent

or

– $250.00 / adult if you need someone to bring in your food and water for you and you may be assigned a meal night with something easy to cook

or

– PREMIUM DEAL: we will set you up with everything you need for a price depending on what all that is and how many people in your party. Negotiate with Toaster on that deal if it is a fit for you.

– plus –

– $20.00 into Ice Jar / person for the week

– 2 Liters of Vodka (If you are sober then not to worry, bring something else)

Ice Management: a rotating person will be required for a daily trip to Artica for ice needs of the camp. This will be posted on the white board; it may be in 2’s; volunteers welcome. Each camper must add to the ice jar. (see fees)

Water Management (5/2014): You bring enough water for you + 1/2

Why the stress over the water? Everyone need to hydrate and the best ting to do is get a 5 gallon container and fill it up on Gerlach or fill it up somewhere along the way. Have enough for you, your showers, and plan a portion for the community. Everyone will be thirsty and there will be gatorade (or similar) to keep you alive.

Vodka Management (5/2014): Vodka + Gatoraide allows your body to stay hydrated and be ready for the day all at the same time.

After breakfast 2 people will make a trip to Artica with money from the fund and bring ice for everyone’s cooler.

MEAL SYSTEM**

Each camper must select a day to make dinner for the camp; a meal that consists of a protein, grain/starch/ and veg. Something like tacos/fajitas is a great way of making all those things happen in one shot, but let’s not have 8 nights of tacos. If you need suggestions see below, but in the meanwhile we also have dietary needs: If you have a dietary need please COMMENT on the document below and add your allergy or need to the bottom of this document.

Choose a night to make dinner approximately 6pm (Edit this document)
– Sunday – (your name) – Menu

Campers are NOT REQUIRED to be present unless you are scheduled to be in that night to make dinner. You can trade and make notes on the whiteboard that will be in the kitchen. You will have access to leftovers!

Schedule Full??? make a lunch instead…

Dinner Circle: Each night before dinner we will gather in a circle, holding hands and have a mini camp meeting. This so when announcements are given, plans shared if desired, and the menu for dinner is announced. It is a tremendous community building tool.

PANTRY**
What will you bring to share? All campers are asked to bring extras to share. here are some suggestions:
– nuts
– dried fruit
– gatorade powder or gallons
– water (big jugs – no individual bottles please)
– last year extra avacado was a big win

TRASH MANAGEMENT
Scott Knot-O is our LNT manager
Official Trash Manager: this person is required to manage the 3 R’s for the camp BUT! It is everyone’s responsibility to make sure recyclables, burn barrel and landfill garbage is safely managed. EVERYONE must be a part of this and listen to the Trash Manager and LNT manager when asked.

**LNT / 3 R’s
LNT = LEAVE NO TRACE – keep it clean. Then make sure it stays clean.
3 R’s = Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

CLUE: If you go shopping on the way in remove and leave behind as much pf the packaging as you can. If you pick up pop-tarts. then get rid of the boxes. Bring the absolutely minimum in.
