Tarot readings and making bead bracelets for the young and old alike. Our Airstream trailer offers a quite space if one needs to escape the melee and air conditioning for cooling off.

Your Soul is My SoulWe are bringing musical equipment and will construct a small dry stage area for musicians from within the camp and from the nether regions of the world to have a spot to jam whenever they like. We will have an electric guitar, an electric piano, and a small sound system, and will be providing power to run. If the burn gods are appeased, a set of drums may materialize from within our friend group. Feel free to bring your own instruments and jam out at our music style oriented Jam Sessions each day. Jam sessions start at Sundown. Thursday is blues night, come and get bluesy as fuck. Friday is Fire and Metal Friday, bring your meanest face and your greatest riffs, and come have a free for all metal jam with our metal master Scrum. Fire spinning will be heaviest at this time. After the Fire and Metal at Sundown, we will have a DJ set after for our later hangouts. Saturday is Hot Diggits Dog its Burn Day late lunch at 2pm. We will be handing out hot dogs with chili sauce, nacho cheese, onions, ketchup mustard to whoever comes to the camp from 2-4pm. Fuel up for burn night. We dont believe in much at our camp, but we believe our chili sauce can save the world. Sunday is acoustic day, come at Sundown and jam away with whatever acoustic instrument on hand. We have a geodome which will be covered as a dry area as well, for people to hang out under and grab a drink from our bar stocked with the lowest shelf offerings possible. Bring a hammock and hang around for a bit. We will also have a fuel dump, and a safely constructed fire spinning area. Much of our camp loves to spin or dance with fire, and we would love to see everyone elses talents as well.Cackalacky

Camp BeemoreCamp Beemore is a Baltimore-based Burner menagerie of visionary mischief-makers, uninhibited booty-shakers, virtuoso world-creators, avant-garde awe-curators, fathomless dream-dreamers, unrelenting plan-schemers, earth-shattering music magicians, extraordinary experience technicians, rowdy blissful chaos agents, and trickster status quo reagents. Home is wherever we build our Hive, and we give our all to keep our vision alive. Our hands may be dirty but our spirits are free and we’re shaping the kind of world where we want to bee. A Bee is industrious, but never a martyr; we work feckin’ hard but throw down even harder. We keep it buzzing non-stop (a Bee’s work’s never done) but the sweetness we all share is damn worth it, hon.Eastern Seaboard

LovelabLovelab Sound Camp is a collection of various individuals and groups which have a common history from the beginnings of the rave scene. We started doing full moon gatherings back in 1995 in this area of West Virginia. Every full moon we would take our sound system and rock out under the full moon. Invitations were by word of mouth. It was a beautiful vibe. We continued and did larger events from 1995-2001. Our last event was Sept 8, 2001 which was held at this very spot (called Marvin's Mountain Top Race Track at the time). So, this event is truly a Homecoming for us. Many folks in our camp have been doing burns with other camps, and on their own since 2003. We are now reuniting to rock out once again together, bringing together all new and old friends and family to share in the one thing that we all love about this stuff.... : The VibeMorgantown, WV

Squirrel CitySquirrel City is a new theme camp from Raleigh, NC! We love to play, frolic about, wear furry things, and eat nuts. The squirrel is our spirit animal!

Caution: May contain nuts!Cackalacky
Catastrophe!Catstrophe! returns to Mysteria for a third time with its world-famous Octonest, the 8-sided cuddle puddle. Everyone is welcome to rest in the nest, but no shoes, no sleeping, and no sex.

Come on by and check us out, you never know what the hell you might find. We might be hanging out chilling by a fire, there might be a breast milk bukakke party going on, or maybe theres a bunch of friends and close strangers coming together and bonding over the shared experience of farting in cakes. Also, there was that one time with the pickled egg... well actually two times. Cackalacky
