Full Blüm is a unique grass-roots, independent, not-for-profit project. We rely on the support and investment of our community to be able to put together these unique experiences. With this model, it is important that we all come together to share our worth in more ways than one - because we all have something worth sharing, we all have the ability to inspire wonder & awe in others, to share our gifts, or to support creative expression within our community - to simply put a smile on someone else's face. Community support means we can all collectively add to an experience to make it even more special and memorable.. and this is why, for the 2020 Full Blüm Campout we ask you to BRING YOUR MAGIC! We can all contribute to this experience by bringing costumes, lights, entertainment or interactive & fun experiences to share with others. With such a friendly and charismatic community, we all have an opportunity to express ourselves in a radical way, influencing the people around us in a positive way. Over the past few years you've appreciated the way the Full Blüm team has worked so hard to create unique experiences for others. The Campout is your chance to join us.. not as an attendee, not as a volunteer but as a participant, who brings their own magic, to help create a fun-loving & memorable experience for others.
HOW CAN YOU BRING YOUR MAGIC?
THEME CAMPS Theme Camps aka Contribution Camps are what make festivals feel like more than just a festival. Theme Camps are the best way to make a campground feel like home. We've all been kids at one point or another and we've all done things for the pure sake of being silly, using our imagination and making others laugh. Theme Camps use creative, funny or clever ideas to create engaging & inspiring interactions with fellow campers. Not only does it give you an opportunity to provide an experience for your camp mates but it also gives you an opportunity to connect with your inner-child. Maybe you've always wanted to be a designer or an architect and this is your opportunity to put your dreams to the test and show others what your passionate about in a fun and loving atmosphere! Theme Camps often require a team of friends to work together to make a project like this come to life.
COSTUMES Who doesn't like a good costume or themed outfit? We feel like this is an easy one! Blümers love to wear funky outfits so don't by shy and let your weird flag fly out where the wild things are! We will be hosting costume contests every night at the 2020 Full Blüm Campout! Here are the themes of the day; Funky Friday - Retro Threads. Psychedelic Patterns. Disco Safari Prints. Value Vintage Boutique. Galactic Saturday - Intergalactic Aliens. Astronaut Abduction. Weird Shiny Spacey Stuff. Superhero Sunday - Dress up as your favourite super hero, or just be YOURSELF!
To enter the daily costume contest make sure to hit the Red Carpet Costume Contest at main stage and win some prizes!
INSTRUMENTS Flutes, djembes, harmonicas, guitars you name it, they're all in season. Even a triangle or a shaker could win the crowd!
Instruments are instrumental to a wholesome and well rounded campground. Since there is NO AMPLIFIED music allowed on sight, you might as well bring something else to make noise with!
If you are a musician or performers there may be lots of open mic opportunities to jam. If you just like to share neat things with others we will be hosting a talent show Friday and Saturday night at main stage!
GAMES This ones easy! Bring games, make games, participate in games or create games on the spot. Sometimes we forget how easy it is to play and make games out of the things around us. We all used to be professionals at this at one point.
What can you bring to play with others?
We know rules aren't cool, but if we had to go against the grain and pick just one.. IT WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU AT LEAST HAVE FUN!
PARTICIPATE Peace a cake right? Anyone can put to hands in the air and sit cross legged. At the 2020 Full Blüm Campout we have a stacked line up of workshops, yoga & meditation classes, performances, fire ceremonies, crafting sessions and so much more!
Because this is only our 2nd campout yet, your participation and involvement in all our activities will be remembered and valued! Along with our costume contests, talent shows and opening ceremonies, participating will be a highlight of this weekend!
ART & ART INSTALATIONS Do you like to create? Paint, craft or just glue random sticks together like I did?
An art installation doesn't have to be as grandiose as the ones you may see at Folk Fest. It can be anything that you've made that may add colour or character to any given space. The weirder and more random it is the better. Don't be shy!
Are you an artists who likes to paint, draw or sketch? Bring your supplies, materials and work table into the wild to set up and get freaky!
