VIBES BY YOU!
Disorient Country Club is an ephemeral dream that exists for one weekend only. Discover an ever growing and morphing participant-generated weekend of art, theme camps, art cars, art boats, and electronic and live music. Bring what you love! Join us with your creative output and share it in the beautiful tapestry woven wildly in our green forest hideaway.
In addition to being a venue of music and camping, we also are a venue for art installations and interactive experiences.
Disorient is offering modest art grants for the creation of selected projects displayed at Country Club.
We request that very large art, or art that requires power or fire elements be coordinated with us to ensure that your art can be safely displayed. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org

The mission of Disorient is to make people happy. As we get bigger and more organized, it’s important to remember that what makes Disorient special is that by joining together, we can bring happiness to more and more people. That is what we do on the playa. It is what we strive to do off the playa. Volunteer to join us. It is our foundation. It is our heart. Join the volunteer squad. Help us make the magic that is the Country Club experience. It is not a great way to meet new people and get involved, it is the BEST way. You will truly feel a part of the fold once you have been a part of the creation of a Disorient event. Want to volunteer for Country Club? Unsure of what you can do? Do not fret, my friend, no specialized skills are necessary.

Open camping is available beyond the marked spots. Please check in at the gate with any questions and our Lady of the Manor will assist you in locating a perfect camping spot for you and your crew.
In 2017, due to some negligent campers littering their glow sticks, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, etc, clean up was a real problem. Since then, our policy has been to ban these single use items. Please DO NOT bring them. We invite you to explore fiber optics, EL Wire and led strips to light up your night experience.
Fires for large groups will be coordinated by Disorient production team. Personal small fires must be kept off the ground, in fire dishes, and in well-cleared areas. Extreme care must be practiced to keep from scorching the land.
Dogs are welcome, but please be aware that the Main Stage can reach levels that are harmful to dogs’ sensitive ears. Please keep dogs away from the Main Stage area.
Ticks are part of camping in Upstate New York. Please come armed with DEET and Permethrin.
Pornj Guards will be on site to help maintain a safe and consensual environment for all campers. Campers behaving aggressively will be warned once. If a second intervention is necessary, offending campers will be asked to leave.
Use good judgement with the onsite sauna. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to use without direct guardian supervision.
Swimming is permitted in the lake. Please feel free to bring floats, rafts, small boats etc. There is no lifeguard on duty, children under the age of 18 are not permitted to swim without direct guardian supervision.
LEAVE NO TRACE
Country Club is a pack it in, pack it out experience. There are no trash cans onsite.
WHAT’S LNT? WHAT’S MOOP?
LNT is Leave No Trace that you were there. MOOP is Matter Out Of Place. Anything that is not natural to the Country Club grounds is MOOP. Flakes and ashes from burnt material also counts as MOOP. You take out every scrap of material you brought in. That includes all your garbage. DO NOT dispose of anything on the ground. Do a thorough MOOP sweep of your campsite before you leave.
LNT CODE OF CONDUCT
Plastic disposable cups, just don’t. Bring your reusable cup.
Don’t throw plastic into fires. The fumes will make you feel funny, and not the good way.
HIDE YOUR GARBAGE BAGS
People tend to throw their garbage into whatever open trash bag is available. If you do not want to take out loads of other people’s trash, consider a tarp to cover your trash. Also, it makes it easier to separate trash from recycling.
You can reduce the amount of trash you have to take out by removing any excess packaging from your supplies before you arrive at the event.
Carry a butt can. Use it. Best practice- roll your smokes so you are not leaving filters to be picked up by our rockstar Disengage Team.
LEND A HAND
Some campers will be coming via bus and cannot bring out bags of trash. Please help these people if you can. If you can’t take extra garbage out, please gift some trash bags to the Disengage Crew.
Do not burn it. It becomes a flakey mess that is impossible to clean up.
