How Continuum Camp works
[ Turning a few pounds into an adventure ]
At Continuum Camp, we get lovely groups of friends and families together to create an inclusive participatory event by offering a shared ticket buying and volunteer commitment to all event attendees. This purposeful effort raises the required budget and participation to hold and enjoy each annual camp and enables our collective fundraising.
Ticket prices are kept as low as possible. We've created a camping experience that is on a financial par if not cheaper than a weekend booking at a regular campsite or caravan park in the region – except at Continuum Camp, we also have plenty of value added festival style fun.
We approach our event organising and volunteer recruitment a bit differently from more standardised festival type events. As a not-for-profit and non-corporate organisation without sponsership, we focus on creating an equitable grassroots community.
Our simple motto is “Let’s all put our money where our morals are and create some fun together”. Continuum Camp is a people powered weekend that’s not just about having a great time, it's also all about participation and shared purpose.
Everyone staying the weekend buys a ticket
At Continuum Camp all attendees staying and enjoying the entire weekend purchase a ticket - everyone from the organisers to the crew, the site teams and performers, to the venue owners and bar staff - that's all attendees involved over the duration of the weekend. This distributed support creates a fair and equitable budget to cover all infrastructure costs and helps make this volunteer event as fun and safe as possible.
The only paid staff (from ticket sales) are the 24hr SIA/First Aid security team managing event safety as an intergal part of our licensing and safeguarding policy. The main food cafe staff are also paid (from their takings). This small team work very long hours and shifts throughout the entire four days of our event, with minimal if no opportunity to enjoy some free time (we are looking at training and expanding volunteer options for the cafe crew moving forward).
Time is precious
The actual amount of time and volunteer commitement given to help Continuum Camp, rather than preferencing specific skill sets required to stage our event, are the significant priority considerations in how we organise the event and the associated benefits (food & expences) provided. There are volunteer options ranging from 0 hours to a maximum of 20 hours spread over the duration of the event. The more time willingly provided, the more altruistic benefits received.
Continuum Camp ticket system & volunteering:
Together with buying a weekend e-ticket online, at this point of purchase every attendee is given a selection of altruistic options to willingly volunteer some time and skills to get involved - helping us to successfully realise this people powered community weekend (a limited amount of day pass tickets are also available at our event box office).
So, grab yourself a ticket, get involved and let's make it happen together!
