Water at the Camp

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

As usual, the Chaos Communication Camp takes places in the middle of Nowhere. That means, quite all infrastructure for the needs of thousands of participants has to be carried out to the location.

The Ziegeleipark Mildenberg is connected to the local fresh water and waste water system. But it is not designed for that many people. So we have to store water for showers and taps. And even the waste water needs to be collected, so that it can be dumped in the night, when there is less usage from the villages around. Speaking of toilets: other than during past Camps, there will be no chemical portable toilets with a waste tank. This time we will provide water toilets and urinals! No stinky porta-potties beside your tent, what an advantage! The portable toilets are storage rooms for data communication equipment only, the good old fashioned “Datkenklo”.

We learned from the past years and install more showers than before. There will be shower containers like we had during the last Camp in 2011. Separated shower cabins with heated and enough water for a good shower. But keep in mind, other attendees want to shower as well, so keep your shower time short. We will help you with a button, which will activate the water for a short time only. You can push it endless times, but don’t expect a long, uninterrupted rain on your head.

Furthermore there are three large basins for cleaning your dishes and tools. Please use these locations, as the waste water will be collected for proper removal. You should not empty any waste water on the ground.

Like at the first two Camps in 1999 and 2003 there will be a lake next to the campsite, where you can take a refreshing dip. Please don’t use soap in there – the nature and animals won’t like it.

Sparkled and drinking water will be provided by many food and beverage booths at the central market place. There is even an option for buying crates full of water, Mate or beer. If you or your village is interested in buying more than 10 crates, please contact boc@lists.ccc.de for the large order. The pricing will be announced soon.

Camp 2015 Ticket Shop is open now!

We all are very much looking forward to Camp 2015 – many things, like the new location makes things very exciting but such a new location also makes it very costly: We’ll need to get at least 950.000 EUR from ticket sales, which brings us down to an average ticket price of ~212 EUR.

We moved the Congress to the new venue in 2012 we have been facing the same issue ever since, remember?
There we didn’t want to raise the price above 100 EUR and here we don’t want to go above 200 EUR: We leave this, again, up to everyone of you to contribute as much as you can afford to – to make the Camp affordable for everyone in sum.

You can get:

  • Standard tickets for 220 EUR
  • Supporter tickets for 240, 260, 280 and 300 EUR
  • Business tickets for 450, 600 and 750 EUR
  • Up-and-coming tickets for 50 EUR
  • If you are on a low budget, there is the option to buy a ticket for 200 or even 180
  • As usual there is also the friends request available, so that everybody is able to attend.

We provide you in the ticket system a graph that shows the average ticket price and how far away we are from the 950.000 EUR. Please help us to create a nice graph! :)

Please be aware that there will be no ticket sale on site! So go ahead and get your ticket right now: https://tickets.events.ccc.de/ – if you have further questions please refer to our wikipage.

Update:
Shame on us, we forgot the Up-and-coming tickets for our young generation! This is fixed now.

If you are under 12 you get in for free! Between the age of 12 and 18 you are eligible for an Up-and-coming ticket for 50 EUR. That means, you must convince us, to be born before August 13th 1997. Please bring a (sufficiently convincing fake of a) document / photo ID stating your age.

Plan Your Travel for Camp 2015

Friday, June 26th, 2015

The Chaos Communication Camp 2015 approaches with giant steps! Whelp, it’s high time for a round of basic information, so you can plan your journey accordingly.

The dates

  • If you’re part of a Village or as an individual, the earliest reasonable date of arrival will be August 8th. Before that, there won’t be any power, water or Mate supply and you’ll likely stand in the way.
  • Disassembly of the event will commence on the evening of August 17th. We need to clear the venue by August 20th.
  • We’re going to need lots of people for the teardown and cleanup. You can help out, more on that in the Wiki about volunteers at the Camp!

Motorized vehicles

Special announcements for motorized vehicles

  • Even during Camp construction time there will be little to no cars allowed at the site of the event. A special procedure will be announced at the entrance and can change from one hour to the next. Please prepare to unload your vehicles at the main entrance and relocate them to the parking lot for the duration of the event. Parking in front of the main entrance will be limited, so better gang up!
  • Caravans and Campervans will get their own designated area right next to the venue. Officially it’s outside the main Camp area, so you can move your Campervan for a shopping tour.
  • Trucks, Caravans, and Campervans may enter the venue if they’re an integral piece of your Village’s set-up. Those vehicles will need to be in place by August 12th and won’t be able to leave until the event came to a close, so please plan accordingly.

Rental tents and Village construction

  • If you or your Village rented a tent from our (already closed) tent rental service, we’ll likely have those set up on August 8th as well. Some tents might be set up some time later (after the weekend of 8/9 August), but still before August 13th.
  • Your Village will get its own staked out stretch of land! Build as compact as possible. Buffer overflows are usually bad, so please stay within that area to avoid reboots. You might also cooperate with similar villages for a joint space.

Tickets will be up for sale soon™, as well as more information on general infrastructure at the Camp 2015!

Chaos Communication Camp 2015: Save the date!

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Deutsche Version: siehe unten

Not just because of tradition, but because we can: There will be a Camp in 2015 again!

After more than three thousand guests at the last Camp in 2011, we expect many outdoor enthusiasts, who like to hack during the day and marvel at the light displays at night and will celebrate the ultimate party in the middle of the festival season with us. Let’s just bring all the great experiences from the Congress out on the lawn and do all the experiments too dangerous for the halls of the CCH!

After an exhaustive search we found the perfect green field site for hackers of all kinds to build a camp with the most distinguished wood illuminators and musicians: the Ziegeleipark Mildenberg (brickyard Mildenberg), located idyllically between waterways, but still easily accessible. Don’t forget your swimming trunks and bikinis, because there is a bathing area right at the site: a truly beautiful swimming lake, just a few minutes walk away and well suited to fight the noble nerd paleness. But if you do not like swimming lakes: We will have the popular shower containers again! :}

Of course, we will put together an exciting talk program, which will be presented in two large tents, accommodating 800 and 1,200 people respectively. Moreover there is a park train system with three different track gauges, winding it’s way through the industrial scenery. There will also be a steam engine and a whole museum on machinery and tools used for brick-making.

Assemble in vacation travel groups! If you are free this summer, August 13th through 17th, we would like to invite you to come to the Chaos Communication Camp in Mildenberg. Where a hundred years ago the bricks were burnt for Berlin, we will set up our Camp. Bring your projects, ideas, space rockets and tents, of course. In return we will provide you with a DIY market near by, three brick bbq places and several bars to care for an appropriate environment to fraternize with others.

Tickets for all four days of the Chaos Communication Camp 2015 will be offered in a presale or are available at the site. The presale will be available in June the earliest. Right now the final price is uncertain, because the calculations are not finished yet. We aim to keep the price for the four day ticket below €200. Of course, people accompanying disabled people enjoy free admission. The Call for Participation for the camp program will be published on this webpage soon.

Save the date for a summer vacation with like-minded people, including working hand rail trollies and locomotives! Until then you might want to indulge yourself in some memories of the Camps in 2011 and 2007.

inconvenience

Nicht nur der Tradition wegen, sondern weil wir es können: Es wird 2015 wieder ein Camp geben!

Nach über dreitausend Gästen beim letzten Camp im Jahr 2011 erwarten wir viele Outdoor-Begeisterte, die tagsüber hacken, sich nachts von der Außenbeleuchtung verzücken lassen und zusammen die ultimative Party mitten in der Festival-Saison feiern. Laßt uns einfach all die tollen Erfahrungen vom Congress raus auf die Wiese tragen und all die Experimente durchführen, die mitten im CCH zu gefährlich sind!

Nach aufwendiger Recherche haben wir den optimalen Ort im Grünen für Hacker, Häcksen und Ähnliche ausfindig gemacht, um mit den erlesensten Waldbeleuchtern und -beschallern ein Camp aufzubauen: der Ziegeleipark Mildenberg, idyllisch gelegen und von Wasser umgeben, aber dennoch gut erreichbar. Badehosen und Bikinis nicht vergessen, denn es gibt eine Badestelle auf dem Gelände: ein wirklich schöner Badesee, nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß entfernt und sehr geeignet zur Bekämpfung der noblen Nerd-Blässe. Und wer Badeseen nicht mag: Wir haben auch wieder die beliebten Duschcontainer! :}

Natürlich werden wir ein spannendes Programm zusammenstellen, das in zwei großen Zelten mit 800 bzw. 1200 Plätzen zu sehen sein wird. Das Gelände hat zudem eine Parkeisenbahn mit drei Spurweiten, die sich durch die Industriearchitektur schlängelt. Zu bewundern ist außerdem eine Dampfmaschine und ein Museum mit Maschinen und Werkzeug zur Ziegelherstellung.

Also: Bildet Urlaubsreisegemeinschaften! Wenn Ihr diesen Sommer vom 13. bis 17. August noch keine Pläne habt, dann möchten wir Euch einladen, zum Chaos Communication Camp 2015 nach Mildenberg zu kommen. Wo vor hundert Jahren die Ziegel für Berlin gebrannt wurden, schlagen wir unsere Zelte auf. Bringt Eure Projekte, Ideen, Weltraumraketen und natürlich die Zelte mit. Dafür bieten wir dann einen Baumarkt in der Nähe, drei gemauerte Grillplätze und mehrere Bars, um für eine angemessene Fraternisierungsumgebung zu sorgen.

Die Tickets für alle vier Tage des Chaos Communication Camps 2015 werden im Vorverkauf angeboten oder sind direkt vor Ort zu kaufen. Frühestens im Juni können wir den Vorverkauf starten. Der genaue Preis steht momentan nicht fest, da die Kalkulation noch nicht abgeschlossen ist. Wir wollen aber beim Preis für das Ticket für alle vier Tage unter 200 € bleiben. Natürlich können Menschen mit Behinderungen je eine Begleitperson kostenlos mitbringen. Der Call for Participation für das Camp-Programm wird demnächst an dieser Stelle zu finden sein.

Save the date für den Sommerurlaub unter Gleichgesinnten, inklusive funktionierender Draisinen und Lokomotiven! Bis dahin könnt Ihr vielleicht etwas in den Erinnerungen von 2011 und 2007 schwelgen.
