  Theme camps are a pre-planned group of people camping together with a collective mission to provide a FREE unique experience or environment to the community of Beardfest.  Theme camps might offer their own pre-planned events as an additional/alternative activity for Beardfest participants to attend or simply provide a common area for folks to gather and enjoy the space.  Theme Camps (and individuals) are encouraged to curate a space that most excites them!

Theme camps take Beardfest to the next level! They provide additional spaces for festival participants to explore and get to know one another. As such, theme camps are provided with special perks, like a reserved campsite, placement on the official Beardfest map, and the ability to enter early to set up.
