Theme Camp FAQ

How do I start a Theme Camp?

Theme camps are an amazing gift to the community. Most start out as a fun idea between friends, sometimes as a joke and slowly build into greatness. If you have a neat idea and the drive to make it go- grab some friends and run with it and don’t forget to have fun!

Why should I register my Theme Camp?

Register your theme camp to be on the map. So your friends can find you. So the friends you haven’t met yet can find you. So you know that you can count on the space you registered for being there, reserved for you and yours. So you can request placement that fits with your needs and desires. Register so we can make sure you have the best theme camp information out there. Amplified sound, in a theme camp or not, always must be registered, so if you were looking to play some music or give a show, this will save everyone grief later.

How do I register a Theme Camp?

Theme Camp registration will be open this year on February 4th and close promptly at 11:59 p.m. April 1st (no joke!). Go to to register your theme camp (you have to be signed in to register)

Do I really need to complete everything on the Registration?

YES, please. To the best of your ability. The more we know, the more we can help you, the more you can help yourself. Don’t assume we know anything about your camp, even if you’ve been a staple for 10 years and haven’t changed, our volunteers change every year.

I missed the deadline for theme camp registration- What should I do?!?!

My Theme Camp information has changed after the deadline, what should I do?!

If there have been big changes (your numbers suddenly increased, or decreased, you are now bringing a circus tent, your theme camp fell apart and no longer needs the space, etc.) please please please let City Planning know as soon as possible so we can work with you to the best of our ability.
