We have a few rules and we would like you to read them over. Attending camp enables great freedom, and with that freedom comes responsibility. By attending FetCamp, you are agreeing to abide by our rules. Failure to abide by the rules may be cause for warnings, or removal from the event at the discretion of management.
For attendees, we have a strict “No Camera Policy” to ensure everyone’s privacy. Yes, that includes cell phone cameras, it includes "selfies" and yes it includes photos taken in your tent or cabin. There are to be NO private photos at all for any reason. Once someone posts a private photo, one without the camp watermark, it looks like people have special permission to take private photos or that we dont enforce the rules.
Our Camp Photographer is Wintersong, you can look them up on Fetlife to get a preview of their work.
Our photo policies are designed to protect everyone's privacy while making sure our talented photography team is compensated for work, as well as ensuring those of you who want pictures get high quality photos to document your experience.
The photo package is $20 and pre-paid at registration, or you can upgrade to it once on site. The photography team will be roaming the camp looking to capture your play and fun in a casual or sometimes candid way, as well as having scheduled times when Wintersong will be in a fixed location listed on the schedule, so people who want to make sure they get photos, can. If you have something fantastic planned and you need a photographer, let the staff know and we will do our best to have a photographer there for you.
After the event, our photographer will sort through the photos, and there are a LOT of photos to sort through, and put together a proofing gallery with intrusively watermarked photos of everyone who signed a model release and paid for the photo package. A link to that gallery will be sent to the email address you list on your release. You can then contact Wintersong and they will get high-res images to you.
Note: You, FetCamp, and Wintersong will have shared usage rights for the photos taken of you at camp. That's a common practice for events like ours, and is how we're able to offer the services of a professional photographer at such a good rate.
You may chose to upgrade to the photo package once on site and will be required to show an official government-issued ID, sign a wavier, as well as wear the required photo friendly wrist band. Additionally you may negotiate with the photographers on site or after the proofing gallery has gone out, for fully retouched photos or prints to be made for you for a reasonable price.
We feel this policy is the most respectful to our skilled photographers and assures you that you will be photographed and receive a photo from the event. Please make sure you are wearing your wrist band at times when it is OK to photograph you.
We feel this a great value and encourage everyone to sign up for the photo package.
FetCamp welcomes everyone regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation or presentation. Your sexual interests and proclivities are of no real interest to us, and NO we don't care where you pee. All restrooms and classrooms are inclusive of everyone. We will do our best to get the pronoun correct, and expect all attendees to do the same. We ask that we treat each other with the respect we would like to be treated with.
NO SMOKING! That includes Vaping! No smoking in any building or tent at any time for any reason... Smoking is NOT allowed within 15 feet of any building or tent, if you must smoke, please be an adult and deposit your butts in an appropriate container.
Drug and Alcohol Policy
FetCamp does not condone the use of illegal drugs and there is a strict “no drugs on the property” rule in effect. Regardless of legality on the state level, we are following the Federal law, and are respecting the rules of our rented venue. Cannabis is not allowed at camp! It will not be tolerated and may result in expulsion from the event. We are guests here and as such must abide by the rules. We are not here to make a personal statement as that is irrelevant with regard to the wishes of management.
Alcohol is allowed in moderation, please respect others and don't be a drunken mess in public. Outward drunken, lewd, obnoxious, or abusive, behavior will not be tolerated and may result in expulsion from the event without a refund. Don't be getting high, and don't split hairs as to what a "drug" is. If you need help deciding, perhaps this isn't the event for you.
The opinions and decisions of the event staff are final, so don't be stupid! Play responsibly, drink responsibly, and if your "medication" is not considered FEDERALLY legal, DON'T BRING IT OR USE IT.
