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

  • 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!

Campguide released

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

For your orientation and answering the most frequent questions, we created a nice Campguide.

Camp Map

Included in the Campguide is a map with all the facilities and the larger villages. In the center are the two lecture shelters “Kourou” and “Baikonur” and the “Hackcenter” north of it. In front of the Hackcenter shelter is the “motodrone” located, the area where you can fly your quadcopters or similar objects. Behind the Hackcenter next to the small forest you can find the “Trockendock”, an area with music, lights and bars. South and east of the lecture shelters is the main camping area with a lot of villages. In the West you can find the Workshop shelter “Mojave”, some snack bars and the C.E.R.T. (Chaos Emergency Response Team) for first aid. It’s also the area where it is more silent and best suited for families.

We chose names for the roads, so that you can easily describe your location. West-to-East roads carry names from space scientist, North-to-South roads are named after famous space travelers and in contradiction the diagonal roads carry names from fictional space travelers.

Villages which are not located on the map can choose a free place by their own.
