The Mint is your go-to location for classic Vegas vibes, fire and flame effects, music, drinks, dancing, and general Merri-Mint!
Cenosillicaphobia is a burner camp dedicated to the fine art of the home brew – be it beer, cider, or mead – and finding the best company to share it with. So do you, too, suffer from Cenosilicaphobia—the fear of an empty glass? Bring your lonely mug by, and we’ll put your fears to rest. We’re serving up beers, ciders and meads – all homebrewed by on-site camp members. Plus, our brewers love to talk shop, whether you’re a long time brewer or hoping to get started!
This is our 11th year at Wickerman! We are a geeky camp who loves to meet people! This year we’ll be doing spray paint art demonstrations and our annual BBQ where we feed the masses! Come by our camp and say hi!
LOUD ERUDITE GOBLINS ON FIRE-
Goblins are a mischievous, loud, and intelligent bunch. While goblins can be vengeful, greedy creatures whose primary purpose is to cause trouble to humankind, there is a smaller population of Goblins that possess a kinder, or more neutral temperament. Regardless of the type, though, all Goblins are rumored to hold various kinds of special abilities, often magical in nature. Goblin markets are famous for exquisite crafts, rare potions, and the finest magical items. Trust goblins not, for the cost of these items far exceeds the worth! Goblin: From Old Northern French gobelin (compare Normand goubelin, Walloon gobelin), possibly a blend of Old Dutch *kobeholdo (“goblin”) and Late Latin cobalus (“mountain sprite”), from Ancient Greek κόβαλος (kóbalos, “rogue, knave; goblin”).
Camp Teapee is an interactive endurance performance art installation. Herbal ginger tea is brewed over a campfire and served throughout the event. Shadow puppet crankies will be also performed from a converted 1978 VW bus!
We will be making Bacon Pancakes
Camp Balance, living life as balanced creatures.
LIBRARIANS AGAINST HUMANITY-
Studies show that although the majority of the population approves of and values libraries, a portion of THAT population does not regularly visit their local library. Are you one of these folks? WELL NOW IS YOUR FUCKING CHANCE! Do your civic duty and stop by our library – the best damn library at WickerMan! Take as many of our books as you wish to keep forever cause we don’t have overdue fines! Book limit? WHAT LIMIT? JUST TAKE THE DAGGONE BOOKS ALREADY, PEOPLE. We also have coloring books – cursey and not – and coloring supplies for you to settle in with under the tall trees of Big Bottom! We also give away custom-made bookmarks and MOOP tins! Warning: Exposure to Librarians might result in heckling, snarkasm, puns, laughgasms, and other forms of wit, warmth, and whimsy!
Synthetic Wookie is bringing several analog synthesizers for hands-on demonstration and workshops. Do you want to learn how analog synthesis works? Do you want to make sounds and twiddle our knobs? PLEASE TWIDDLE OUR KNOBS! Synthetic Wookie will play space- and synth-themed music (as a DJ) with laser light shows from time to time, perform live electronic music throughout the week, play space-related music videos and at least one cheesy space-related movie, projected on a white screen through our sound system. Got instrument? Let’s set up a jam!
TRIBUTE 2 THE AWESOME-
FUIAW (F-U I’M A WIZARD)-
F.U.I.A.W. (Fuck You I’m A Wizard) is an eclectic mix of artists who strive to bring magic in their own way to every encounter. In past years our magic included music, fire, drinks, conversations, and other frivolous fun. As every year brings on new experiences in life so too are the Wizards bringing new experiences to camp. Many of our ideas are still brewing so please stop by and check out our daily schedule board for specifics and times. Perhaps you’ll even be brave enough to stay for a spell and receive some “Free Unprofessional Advice” from Rilix and Lavender. For those over 21, we still have our bar and we will be open in the evenings and would love for you to stop by and enjoy an enchanted special potion in one of our commemorative cups. We welcome all positive energies into our space and wish to create lovely and lasting memories with you.
Eight years!! Holy wax coated cardboard Batman, Camp Firestarter is back in its’ usual spot in the High Meadow close by the Coffee Dragon (Wickergods willing). Once again Ranger Bob and the minions from the Ultra Super Secret Lab in the extremely backwoods, banjo playing, pig squealing lands of Pennsylvania are going to provide the ignition-inept Burners of Wickerman with glorious bundles of goof proof FIRESTARTERS!!!! The caches will be set up at the shower houses once again since that worked pretty well last year. All we ask is that you take only what you need so our small but mighty packages can be thoroughly shared among the pyro-challenged masses. As usual, the minions only want to fulfill the principles of Unconditional Gifting, Radical Self-Reliance, and Decommodification along with getting slightly burned, tied up in twine and coated in wax. Take a few back to your camp and watch how much less cussing in needed to start that fire. Less time time spent burning off your eyebrows means more time partying! Who wants to play with puny matches anyway? Might you be overcome with the spirit of gifting yourself, Camp Firestarter will gladly accept those old broken and ugly candles you have in the closet (you know you have them). Just drop them off at the campsite. Last year we got almost 14 pounds of the stuff which helps us make more firestarters!
THE BEST CAMP-

In the lounge, participants are able to enjoy the fragrant and exotic flavorful tobacco-filled hookahs while sipping steaming hot cardamom-scented Turkish coffee or a cup of tea, and sharing their experiences with another.

At Xanadu for wickerman
Was a pleasure-tent decreed:
Where Sideling, sacred river, ran
Past sound-camps measureless to man
Through woods of leafy green.
Unburden here your Earthly stones
With mead, and touch and human tone;
Arise with ardor newborn for the effigy grand,
Who, in the meadow, his fiery fate awaits;
And where the revelers in expectation stand,
Discarding mundane pasts for magic fates.
SOUND–>LIGHT–>NOISE–>RAINBOWS! No matter what wavelength you’re on, it’s gonna be constructive. Stop by for experimental sounds and a kaleidoscope crystal light show.

Bourbon Brigade got off to a little bit of a rocky start with a joke that lasted just a little bit too long. Like, twelve hours of drunken shenanigans too long. It was a special nigh (for us, anyway) that we wanted to immortalize so we decided to make a theme camp! After a successful first year at Wickerman 2016 we’re back for round three! So come down to our intergalactic speakeasy, indulge in a cup of bourbon at our new bar during Happy Hour, and get down to some rad tunes. Bowie and chill?

EULOGY FOR THE LIVING-
Why wait until people are gone to sing their praises? Why not do it while they’re still around to hear it? Eulogize your cat. Eulogize your car. Eulogize your fellow burners.

This is fine. Say happy things… happy happy things.
