Camping at Nowhere
A theme camp (or barrio) is a great way to pool resources and participate at Nowhere. There are a growing number of barrios every year, including party camps, healing spaces, a cinema, photography, cabaret and chill out spaces.
Creating a barrio
Creating a barrio is a great way to contribute to Nowhere. Once you've decided how you want to contribute to the cacophony of Nowhere, you'll also need to work out how many people you can support, how much to charge as a camp fee and what that covers. For example, some camps provide food, alcohol and a sound system that would make a small nightclub jealous, but that obviously costs more than just providing a kitchen.
Running a large barrio requires a fair amount of planning, so think carefully about whether you want new camp members in your barrio or just your mates. You’ll need to work out how much food, water and alcohol you need, plus organise cooking, recycling, leave no trace and building a communal shade area. Create a barrio and Run a kitchen have lots of advice.

Joining a barrio
If creating a barrio isn't for you, then many of the existing ones need new members to help out. There are party barrios and quiet barrios, so it’s important you find the right fit! Check out the barrios page to see which camps are looking for new members and to sign up.
Camping on your own
You don’t have to join a barrio – you can also camp alone or with friends. Just remember that you’ll need to sort all your food, water and shelter, and make sure you leave no trace. If you’d prefer to do your own thing, check the forums for advice.
