Hello, hello! Maly here from both the Art Department and also Dragon Heights, here to fill you in on some fun happenings we have going for you this year!
General Campfire Tails Events
Thursday, Dinner: Theme Camp Introductions - Running a theme camp or an interactive art project? Step up and tell everyone about it in this informal little presentation during/after Closing Ceremonies. You’ve put so much work into your idea, we want to make sure everyone knows about it so they can enjoy it over the course of camp!
Thursday, After Sunset: Temple Opening - Meet us at the Temple, located in Red Camp. It’s a wooden structure surrounded by colorful flags. We’ll explain what the Temple is, what you can do with it, and what is going to happen to it at the end of the event.
Sunday, Late Afternoon: Memorial Hour - HOST NEEDED - Join us around the Temple and talk about who and what we’ve lost over the last two very sad years. This is the time for group tears and contemplation. Commiserate with people who understand the very real grief we’re all going through. Since not everyone has the emotional bandwidth to deal with discussions like this at the actual Temple burn, we’re making a space for people to share their feelings somewhere safe and sacred beforehand.
Dragon Heights Events
All Weekend: Dragon Heights is a real Burning Man camp! We travel to several events over the course of the summer, culminating with a week out in the Black Rock Desert for actual Burning Man at the end of August. Enjoy our space and our hospitality - if the open sign is up, you’re welcome to come spend time in our Mongolian yurt! Fursuits welcome! Some of our amenities:
- Hookah (with personal mouthpiece tips, to keep it sanitary!)
- Weird Art Books (Dragonology, Codex Seraphinianus, HR Gieger, etc)
- Fidget Toys and Puzzles
- Games (Cindr, Havoc and Hijinks, 1000 Blank White Cards…)
- Marble Maze
- Comfy Lounges
- Flow Space (somewhere to practice poi or other flow arts - no fire please)
- Charging Station (first come first served for power outlets, please be respectful)
- Meet YOUR Dragon (don’t have a dragon OC yet? let us help!)
Thursday, Afternoon: Flat Friends - Maybe your friend wasn’t able to make it out to camp, that doesn’t mean you can’t have them here with you! We’ll have supplies available for you to make your own paper cutout of their character so you can tote them around for plenty of photo opportunities over the weekend. They’ll even be laminated - do you dare take them to the waterfall? Remember to grab reference sheets before you leave for camp!
Friday, Early Afternoon:Greedy Dragon Dice - Learn a fast-paced dice rolling game, and maybe even leave with a copy of your own! Dice required: 6x D6 (provided, or bring your own lucky ones)
Friday, Late Afternoon: - Cat Chat - Camping gets you out into a really neat wild place, but let’s all admit that we’re missing our stupid house gremlins. Cat Chat is a space for you to share pictures and stories about your precious kitties, both past and present. We will even be handing out a special piece of swag for you to bring home to your cat, because they always deserve worship and gifts.
Friday, Movie Time: Grey Skies Food Court - If you’ve been wanting to share a special treat with other folks from camp, we’re opening Grey Skies (the large structure next to our yurt) for you to set up and pass out goodies. Packaged food preferred, please follow safe food handling practices and have ingredient lists available for dietary concerns.
Saturday, Early Afternoon: Bead Animals - You remember them from the 90s, maybe you made them or maybe you want to learn how. Come pick out some brightly colored beads and create your own little bead pet souvenir to follow you back out to the default world once camp is over.
Saturday, Late Afternoon: POG Championship - It wouldn’t be a real 90s party without a game or two of POGs. Do you remember your house rules from forever ago? Should we make up new ones? Grab your slammers and your collection, let’s topple some stacks of milkcaps. Bring your old collection if you want to do some trading!
Midnight, Every Night: Cult of Dark Lunch - Some kind of grilled cheese food served by cultists in black robes. It wouldn’t be CFT without quesadillas for the Dark Lord! Donations accepted but not expected, money goes to Dragon Heights’ favorite charity paws.org! Eat cheese, help animals! Show up with a plate or something to receive a hot grilled food on - we won’t drop it straight onto your dirty paws!
1hr After Sunset - 2am: Movies Under the Stars - Dragon Heights has once again improved our giant movie screen, and it’s time to dip back in time to all our favorite 90s flicks. Check our sign board during the day to see what the nightly offerings are! We also have guest DJs who jump on the decks sometimes, and this will also be noted on the sign board as arrangements are made.
Covid Precautions: Masks encouraged inside the yurt, we will have high powered fans blowing in the yurt during the entire event to encourage fresh air flow. As we aren’t always 100% present in the yurt, we can’t commit to enforcing a 100% mask policy, nor do we honestly have the energy to fight with people over it after two years of belligerent bullshit.
