Solstice Gathering 2018
Hello friends old and new :)
Spring has blossomed, the days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter!
The summer Solstice is finally on it's way and we are SO excited to share it with you!
Solstice is a membership based gathering. Memberships must be purchased in advance of attending. Memberships are now onsale via Brown Paper Tickets, what you purchase is considered your membership. We encourage you to contribute your dreams, skills and wisdom to help build the magic that is Solstice ...
A Solstice membership explained:::
Along with the financial investment of membership, every member is required to bring a food donation, complete a membershift and follow our simple 5 gathering guidelines:
1. Respect yourself
2. Respect others
3. Respect the land
4. Respect local laws and customs
5. Leave no trace
A membershift is something that makes our gathering special. You can count on the fact that everyone on the land has contributed hours of their time to the operation of the event. This could be lending a hand in the Kitchen, joining a Logistics maintenance team or stepping into one of the many other Places and Spaces that have shifts to be filled. Your participation in this aspect of the gathering is not only an excellent way to meet new friends and learn new skills, but its an opportunity to help our coordinating teams. You will feel empowered knowing that your contribution kept the good vibes flowin and all the wheels rollin. Membershift responsibilities and hours vary, depending on the area - visit our website to get acquainted with expectations. Scheduling and orientation takes place upon your arrival at Centre Camp, so don't worry if you're not sure which to pick yet!
What to expect from the Solstice gathering?
ORP hosts a family-friendly week-long celebration of the summer solstice in a beautiful Ontario forest. Along with wooded camping and fresh spring drinking water, our site features a swimming pond with a sunbathing island. The land becomes filled with laughter, art and themed camping as our members arrive on Monday. Throughout the week, the community grows as our extended family arrives. Journey into dance with 3 dynamic stages of sound running through the weekend. Count on several additional performances, alongside member-run workshops and circle-talks. Dive deep into your imagination, meditate and paint your dreams into this reality at the Art Tent. Our nut-free, vegan Kitchen serves wholesome filling meals and snacks, while our Tea Tent and Coffee Domes offer delicious home brews and java boosts. Swimming, relaxing, yoga, drumming, connection, conversations and time well spent in hammocks awaits you and your friends!
Get involved! JOIN ONE OF OUR CREWS:
We are actively building our various Crews for Solstice 2018, and are seeking helping hands, minds and hearts. A lot of passion goes into every aspect of creating our beautiful gathering, and we wouldnt be able to keep it running without your support. A commitment to a Solstice Crew means dedicating extra time above the standard 6hr-Membershift, working on a deeper level to ensure the smooth running of the event in exchange for a reduced membership. We assign Crew based on area needs, previous experience and available commitment. Our crew application can be found on our website.
If you have received confirmation from us regarding this years Crew, please wait to purchase your membership, as our webteam will email all crew members when their info has been finalized. If you are unsure of your Crew status, or if you have any other questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
