WHERE / WHEN / WHO / HOW

Where?
A gorgeous mixed-use site in Maryland, USA. The exact address will be given as we approach the event.

How much does it cost?

Your entry pass will allow you to camp in your tent on the grounds, sleep in your car, pass out on the grass, or try and find a cuddle buddy to keep you warm at night.

A cabin ticket is $590. This tier grants you access to everything listed above, AND guarantees you a bed on a tempurpedic mattress in one of the many cabins. Bring your own bedding/sleeping bag/pillow!

Kids 8 and under

I want to come but I can't afford a ticket!
We are providing a limited number of reduced price tickets. Fill out this application form to apply for a reduced price ticket.

Can I bring friends?
Yes! Ideally we would like your friends to create their own account on my.vibe.camp but you also have the option to purchase multiple tickets under your own my.vibe.camp account.

How long do I have to purchase tickets?
The deadline for purchasing tickets is June 6th 11:59:59 PM EST.

Refunds?
You may request a 90% refund prior to May 31st at 11:59:59 PM EST.

Who is going to vibecamp?
Capacity is limited to 1000 people for vibecamp 3. At our previous events, attendees came mostly from a loose connection of networks on twitter. This included rats, postrats, EAs, burners, tech bros of various stripes, lurkers and people who had never heard of any of those things. The attendees at the first vibecamp were overwhelmingly open, kind, and just downright pleasant to be around. We anticipate that many of those who joined us for our previous events will be returning for vibecamp 3 -- and look forward to the opportunity to make so many more new friends!

What will happen at vibecamp?
Content and events hosted by both the organizers and attendees like you. You can see the current list of events on my.vibe.camp.

We may add a few people to your group if you didn't manage to fill a cabin on your own.

OTHER

Are pets allowed?
Only licensed service dogs.

Can I play music all night long?
There is a decibel restriction of 55 at the border of the venue that will be enforced after 11pm. If it’s getting late and you’re bothering other vibers, we will ask you to quiet down. Some dance parties may go all night, but we'll turn the volume down even more after 2am and chill things out until mid-morning.

Who do I look to for help during vibecamp?
We will have volunteers on site that will be the point of contact for questions about events or the site, or if you need to contact an organizer  about something more serious. PLEASE report harmful behavior  directly to one of the organizers IMMEDIATELY. We  will have plans in place to respond to issues, but cannot do so if we do not know they are happening.  There will be a single point of contact for interpersonal/community issues and we will  make sure everyone knows how to contact them  to share anonymous complaints as we draw closer to the event.

How do I contribute to vibecamp?
Do a project or bring content! At the first vibecamp attendees organized art sessions, board games, circling, workshops, dancing, and more. Additionally, you can be a volunteer.

How do I host an event at Vibecamp?
Go to my.vibe.camp! Once you have purchased a ticket you will be able to create an event during vibecamp 3. This event will show up on our public schedule. Please note that anyone who has a MVC account will be able to see the events you have created!

Is there a map of Vibecamp?
Yes!

Can I volunteer at vibecamp?
Yes! If you are interested in volunteer at vibecamp 3 you should DM colby on Twitter (@zerothaxiom). Volunteers will receive a free ticket and likely be bunking with the org team at 'The White House'.

COMMUNITY VALUES


We don’t like rules governing behavior, but we’re aware that it’s up to the organizing team to set the tone for vibecamp.

Beyond ‘just vibe, bro’, here are a few things we wanted to tell y’all:

Largely, identifying misconduct will be at the discretion of the org team. We will have people marked as ‘fae’ onsite in shifts that will escalate issues to the org team if necessary. We, the vibecamp org team, reserve the right to ask anyone to leave vibecamp without a refund if we feel it is an appropriate step to take.

Things that we will have zero tolerance for include:

  • acts of physical or sexual assault (the safety of attendees is VERY important to us)
  • publicly doxxing the names of psuedonymous attendees (don’t be a dick)
  • posting photographs/videos/speech that contain people who have not consented to such (again-don’t be a dick, people)

By default, don’t post pics/videos/transcipts and don’t name/imply names unless everyone involved is on board with you doing so. The Chatham House Rule is a great one for this community – you can talk about what was said or what happened, but can’t name names or make it easy to tell who said/did what unless you have explicit consent. Please take a look at our ToS for explicit rules we’re putting in place moving forward.

Vibecamp is our baby. We’ve collectively spent thousands of hours working to bring this vision to life. We want to be able to hang out with friends old and new, and have a great time together! If any attendees are acting in a way that makes you uncomfortable, please don’t hesitate to bring it to our attention directly, or to a fae volunteer who can contact us. We won’t be able to be everywhere at once and we will do what we can to make this a space where we can all be comfortable in our unique selves.

So what is it that we do want to see there?

YOU, in all of your glorious weirdness. Wear costumes (or don’t)! Make art! Play, talk, dance, meet new people! Touch grass! Curiosity and kindness are values we stan. We will have a crazy range of viewpoints and political leanings represented among attendees. This is a perfect opportunity to let go of what artificially divides us and meet one another as humans.

It’s hard to put a finger on our values as a community, because we are so diverse, but here’s our short list:

  • participation rather than spectatorship
  • fulfilling conversations
  • illegibility and the ability to go meta
  • gentle, friendly pranksterishness
  • building an IRL home for ingroup
  • using social media to connect people who wouldn’t have met otherwise
  • personal and collective growth
  • deep, meaningful connection

vibecamp is far more than just a bunch of internet strangers getting together at scale – it is the fulfillment of a dream, a crucial next step along the path towards a better future. We have such incredible people in this community, so much creativity, passion, and talent. Fostering connections between all of us means creating the conditions necessary for amazing people to get together to share thoughts and ideas and begin planning even greater endeavors together.

In the fullness of time we envision vibecamp moving around the world, spawning regional weekend get-togethers that happen more than once a year, and perhaps eventually culminating in purchasing land for a central event location year round. Stay tuned! Give us feedback! Offer your skills and passion! Create what you want to see! We can’t do it without you.
