Gate & Centre Camp
Welcome to the Gathering
Welcome to the Gathering!
Situated at the front of our gathering site, you'll be warmly greeted to your Solstice experience by our friendly Gate Crew. Please ensure you bring your ID to the Gate (including for children, crew members, EVERYONE *if you don’t have government issued ID or have an extenuating circumstance, you must be in touch with your Gate Coordinators in advance! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com), your signed waivers and loads of positive attitude! Gate is also one of our security checkpoints, if you should find yourself needing security assistance.
If you're considering a membershift at the Gate, your role will include greeting members as they arrive, directing traffic, answering questions, collecting waivers, wristbanding, and providing overall support. Please come prepared with fun costumes, snacks and drinks, sun/rain/cold weather clothing, something to do in the downtime and a light sense of humour.
What’s the scene at Centre Camp?
The hub for activity, our Centre Camp is the next stop in your journey! Here is where you can find answers to questions, the 2018 zine, t-shirt sales (including past years), lost and found, and you will sign up for your membershift! Please bring all found items, including keys, cell phones, clothing, etc, to Centre Camp. Given its central location on our gathering site, this naturally makes a great meet-up landmark to find friends as they arrive throughout the week! We will also have a ride board.
Centre Camp membershifts are perfect for those who enjoy customer service, multi-tasking, problem-solving and vibe cheerleading! Please come prepared with positive energy prepared to do scheduling, answer questions, and direct members to camping and parking. Also, don’t forget snacks and drinks and things to do during down-time.
Security at Solstice
The Om Reunion Project is passionate about our beautiful community. We have been careful to cultivate a safe and open environment at Solstice throughout the years and aim to keep it an inclusive and welcoming space for all its members. Accordingly, we have worked hard to cultivate a professional, inclusive and accessible security team. Please remember that Security is onhand to help and ensure the safety of all members, just like our EMRs and Response coordinators. Our clearly marked security team will be stationed at the Gate and many other areas of the gathering. Please feel free to introduce yourself to our Security team, and check in with them if you need assistance.
If you can't find security, but feel an issue needs addressing, please bring it to the attention Centre Camp, Vibe or Health and Safety. Each area at Solstice will have an illuminated "phone box", which houses a 2-way-radio you can use to call for assistance, including medical support through Health and Safety or Vibe. Please party responsibly and take care of yourselves, your campmates and your community.
