CAMPING AREAS
Please note the we have designated FAMILY FRIENDLY and OPEN CAMPING and CAR CAMPING. We ask you to respect those wishing a quieter experience in the family areas. 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.
GLOW STICKS
In 2017, due to some negligent campers littering their glow sticks, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, etc, clean up was a 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
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
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
Ticks are part of camping in Upstate New York. Please come armed with DEET and Permethrin.
PORNJ GUARD
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.

SAUNA
Use good judgement with the onsite sauna. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to use without direct guardian supervision.
LAKE

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
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.
PACKAGING
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.
CIGARETTES
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.
CARDBOARD
Do not burn it. It becomes a flakey mess that is impossible to clean up.

UPON ARRIVAL

Welcome to our planet. CCX map is unmarked beyond the basics. We are journeying into the unknown inviting all to explore pathways and regions to find what this planet has hidden to discover.

“The Tenth”
As we celebrate Country Club's tenth anniversary, we get together and acknowledge our unity. Each of the ten overlapping octahedra not only represents a year of Country Club but symbolises all the souls that have been involved that respective year. All those years, all those participants are unified as one abstraction beyond words. The coalesced resulting octahedra represents this abstraction, this singularity.

Inexplicable Bacon (IxB)

The Gathering of the Unlimited Devotion incorporates play as a pathway to the divine. Through the dust, a spinning object appears. It is round and resembles the nostalgic Sit ‘n Spin toy from the distant past. What you are meant to do is clear: grab ahold of the handle, and use it to pull yourself around. Giggle and laugh with us as you approach that blissful feeling from spinning!

Sofy Yuditskaya + Jana Astanov
“Star Gate”
During the summer we see the winter sky at night, the concept is to create one of the night visible constellations within the Star Gate with a shamanic journey activating the star portal of Fomalhaut - the star that represents the voice of humanity. It is like being inside an astrolabe. Sadamelik and Ancha Aquarius conjoin Enif of Pegasus, Fomalhaut of Piscis Australis, and Deneb of Cygnu. All are humanitarian and visionary stars. Aquarium, the humanitarian water bearer nourishes the body of humanity which is articulated by Pisces Australis and embodies the essence of human society. Fomalhaut of Piscis Australis is the fish's mouth into which the nourishing Aquarian waters flow, and through which humanity speaks. Therefore the star Fomalhaut represents the voice of humanity. People with prominent placement with Fomalhaut have a need to speak for humanity as a whole and about humanity's fundamental needs. They seek ways to sculpt an evolved universal human society, one free from segregation. These stories will be carved into the piece, swirling in with the punctured star-gazing portals incorporating the movements of the night sky to the stories within. Star Gate is an observatory, a space ship, that never leaves the ground.

Blood Pheasant
