Last Call for Who What Where Guide Submissions

Whatever it is, we want to know about it. /" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Email me. This is your last chance!

Early Entry
If you are signed up for a volunteer shift on Thursday or before noon on Friday, you will be on the early entry list. No further action is required and please do not email us to verify your early entry. We are wrapping up to be onsite in less than two weeks and can’t reply to your email.

Theme Camps, email  with the names of your camp members who will need early entry to help you build on Thursday. Theme Camp early entry is limited to only those needed to build on Thursday and is not intended for all camp members.

DO NOT arrive on Thursday without meeting one of these criteria.

Event and Cabin Waiver Reminder
Get them signed before you arrive at gate. You can sign yours here.

Remember to read the gate info on the FAQ page. When you arrive onsite, drive through the gate, continue straight to the Welcome Home sign on left across from the first row of cabins. Park and walk over to Gate and Greeters. DO NOT turn right after entering the gate.

Ticket Sales and Volunteer Signups are Closed
Ticket sales and volunteer signups are closed. Theme Camp registration closes tomorrow, Friday, October 20, 2023 at 11:55pm. Register here, please and thank you. 

Survival Guide
The survival guide for AfterBurn 2023 is available here. Please take the time to read it so you’re familiar with all of the rules, regs, and important info.

How ’bout that?
