Join us for a family reunion style Solstice celebration! This campout event will be filled with co-creative fun! There will be earth skills sharing, family meals made in the outdoor kitchen, fun children’s activities in Kid Village, bonfire jams at night, and community building projects. The workshop space and stage will be available to anyone wanting to play and share.
The event is entirely donation based with a suggested donation of $5-$55 to camp and use the event facilities. All proceeds will go directly back into Sage Valley 501(c)3 non-profit so that we may continue building connection and community.
The gate will officially open at 12 pm on Friday, June 21st, 2019 and close at noon June 23rd.
If you wish to volunteer for admission, there are plenty of opportunities to help in the kitchen, in Kid Village, at check-in, or for general lands management.
➸CAMPING, RVs & BUSES
This is a PRIMATIVE camping event with NO HOOKUPS or electric available. Sage Valley intends to remain off grid. There are several camping areas designed to meet everyone’s needs and to create an intimate environment. There is car camping available in pasture areas for people who need or prefer that. There is a family camping section next to the kid village and the main event space. There is also forest camping, but that requires gear to be hiked in. RVs and Buses are allowed in the car camping sections. Please be aware that this is farm pasture terrain.
Come one and come all vending! We encourage vending of your DIY and homemade crafts, art, services, foods, and more!
➸SECURITY & SAFETY
This is primarily a self-regulated event where attendees are expected to speak out and stand up for what is right. Don’t be a jerk, bring good vibes, and always remember that LOVE is the answer. However, appointed Peace Keepers will be available throughout the event to ensure everyone’s safety. We take care of each other and strive to create a SAFE SPACE for all! Please be sure to respect each other and listen.
We will do everything we can to make this event accessible. There will be parking within walking distance from the main event area. However, the grounds are not designed for handicap accessibility. If you have any special needs to be considered, please reach out to the event organizers so that we may try our best to accommodate you. NOTE: The event grounds are typical of Indiana farm terrain. Trails & foot paths are often curvy, rough, grassy & hard to maneuver for some. Therefore we do not consider this land to be accessible for all.
This is a LEAVE-NO-TRACE event! It’s simple: leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. Pack it in and pack it out. This property is an actual family farm where people live, treat it the way you would want others to treat your own home. If you see others not honoring the LEAVE-NO-TRACE motto take some time to explain to them why it’s important & nicely ask them to pick up after themselves. Recycle bins will be available, please be sure to use them! We ask that all trash brought onto the land is also carried off of the land. Trash removal costs us money, uses resources, energy, and time. Attendees found disrupting the natural beauty of the event farm will be removed from the grounds without refund, we are serious here folks! LOVE EARTH!
Only biodegradable and earth friendly soaps, cleaners, and chemicals should be used at Sage Valley. Let us all be kind to the delicate eco-systems around us. Harmful chemicals can leach into the water systems surrounding us and create a ripple effect with a big impact.
➸SMOKING and TOBACCO USE
Cigarette butts should be properly disposed of and never left on the ground. Smoking should be done away from others and outside of any sacred spaces or family spaces. Ceremonial tobacco use is respectfully permitted within sacred spaces.
The main sacred fire should be honored, cared for, and enjoyed with respect. Entry into this space should be mindful. Offerings to the fire are encouraged and permitted items include tobacco or other organic materials. Please do not cook at this fire or burn trash in it- there is a fire in the dining area that can accommodate these needs.
Sage Valley is not responsible for the care and well-being of pets. Pets will be allowed, but please be responsible. Take care of your pets, keep them safe, and don’t bring aggressive dogs. There are farm animals on the property, DO NOT allow pets to disturb the animals who call Sage Valley home. Pets must be up to date on veterinary care, leashed, and cared for at all times.
➸FAMILY AND KIDS
Sage Valley is a very family and kid friendly event. There is a family camping section and Kid Village will have many activities for children. Please be aware that we do encourage freedom of personal expression at Sage Valley.
