Camping / Parking

Camping with the Love and Kindness community is a wonderful, freeing, expressive experience that can feel like an escape from the stressful reality of everyday life, but it’s important to be smart, safe, and respectful. Treat yourself and other attendees with love and kindness. Help us continue the Love and Kindness legacy of being a respectful, caring, kind and gentle community.

Camp near your friends, mark your property and your tent and take your valuables with you when leave. If you’re not camped near your friends, make friends with your neighbours!

Volunteers will patrol the campgrounds and are there to facilitate a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. It is not their mission to police your lifestyle or inhibit self-expression. Please assist them by following their instructions when asked to do so. In the event of an emergency, alert one of the organizers immediately.



We advise you to

  • Stay hydrated! By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. Water taps are marked on your map.
  • Eat well. Enjoy well-balanced meals throughout the day.
  • Stay on marked trails – there could be poison ivy or sharp objects off the path
  • Be mindful and respect the boundaries of other campers
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. It can be hot and sunny one moment and cold and rainy the next!

Minors/Children

Minors (17 years and younger) must be accompanied by an adult, with a limit of two children per adult. If you are a guardian of an underage camper, you need to be with them AT ALL TIMES, including at the gate in order for them to exchange their ticket for a wristband. And remember: You’re responsible for them for the duration of the festival. If your child is left unattended you may be asked to leave. We require a contact information sheet for all attendees 17 and under, as well as an alternate contact and secondary phone number for someone off site should a guardian be separated from or unable to care for their child. All attendees 17 and under require their guardians cellphone number written on it in case of emergencies. ALL MINORS MUST HAVE A WAIVER SIGNED BY THEIR PARENT/GUARDIAN

RV's

An RV parking pass reserves one parking space for a camping vehicle on the festival grounds in the designated area. You only need one parking pass per RV. Only registered camping vehicles are permitted: RVs, campers, trailers and camper vans. Tents designed specifically to attach to a truck/SUV to convert it into a living space are also permitted in the RV section. Along with your parked RV in your camp spot, you may set up one additional dining or camping tent in the spot as well. Sleeping in your car, an uncovered van or truck box is not allowed. Once inside, vehicles must not be moved except when vacating the campground. There are no in/out privileges. There will be no dumping of waste/water or garbage permitted on the Love and Kindness grounds. We reserve the right to ask you to move or reposition your vehicle in accordance of festival operations.


Vehicles pulling trailers must leave the camping area after parking the trailer.




We believe in the Leave No Trace policy

Leave the festival grounds even cleaner than when you arrived. We want to make sure the Planet is left in good condition for future generations to enjoy just like we have.



Pets

A festival is no place for pets. It’s hot during the day and you’re not going to be at your camp much. Leave your pet in the care of someone who loves them or make boarding arrangements. We won’t allow anyone with a pet (including dogs, cats, birds, rats, etc) into the festival or on the property. No exceptions. Legally recognized service animals are permitted, but must be pre-registered with us and must be approved by the landowners prior to arrival.
