2024 THEME: POSSIBILITIES OF PATTERN


An invitation to explore recognition of the self similar repeating patterns that create the conditioned phenomena available to experience in this world. A flexibility and rigor to recognize and interact with the apparent superstructures, finding skillful ways through, with, past and beyond.

Ideas explored: coherence/decoherence, omniinterregulated structuring, hot swapping capable DNA sequencers, Japanese metabolism architects, Drop City, torus knot topopolis warehouse massives, chronostasis cowboys, Vector Equilibrium jitterbugging, subtle harmonic benders, newly apparent aperiodic monotile tessellations, holobiant upgrades through groove transpositionists


OUR ART + YOUR ART

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.

THINGS TO KNOW
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 are allowed at your camp, but 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.
LNT CODE OF CONDUCT
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 BEST PRACTICES
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
