Campout in Kananaskis Country
From Friday July 13 to Monday July 15, the Covenant of Gaia invites you to our 13th annual Summerfest event.
Summerfest is a Pagan Gathering for those who enjoy time for lighthearted fun amidst Nature's cathedral of trees and mountains. At our annual summer gathering this year, you will find a unique combination of laughter and learning, where workshops and ritual circles counterpoint music, dance and bonfire drumming. We welcome people at all ages, all genders and orientations. Come learn and play with us at Summerfest!
The campground is in a government park, approximately 30 minutes west of Calgary. There is a main fire pit (use will depend on whether there is a fire ban in effect or not). There are no individual fire pits, so be sure to bring your Coleman stove or equivalent for personal cooking. The area is set up for tenting with lots of room for RVs. Note: There is no power. You are responsible for your own food and cooking arrangements. If you need to rent equipment, check with your local outdoor equipment store. Be sure to book rentals early.
Depending on the weather in the weeks before Summerfest water may be in short supply. If at all in doubt bring your own drinking water.
Not far from our Campsite is a wonderful mountain stream. A great place to use earth, and water for spiritual cleansing and meditation and restoration.
The site will open at 4:00 P.M. on Friday July 13. Registration will run from 4:00 - 8:00 P.M. People arriving on Saturday can arrive whenever they wish. Please specify an estimated time of arrival. Monday July 15 will be spent cleaning up and clearing out. The closing Circle will be held at 11:00 A.M.; everyone has to vacate by noon.
Please note that events will run on Mountain Daylight Saving Time — not Pagan standard time!!!
We also ask that all adults donate 2 hours of community work (clean-up). We will have a Priest/ess on call for those who desire to speak to someone and designated security/first aid for this event.

Late registrations will not be accepted. No refunds after midnight of Thursday July 11.

Please take time to look at the following pages on Pagan Camping hints, Camp regulations, and stuff to bring and Leave Less Trace.

Things people do in privacy should still be done in privacy, and illegal substances are very definitely NOT allowed.
