ToorCamp

ToorCamp 2024 Map

ToorCamp is a multi-day gathering where we focus on technology and its integration into society.

We are inspired by the hacker camps in The Netherlands and Germany. We hope to form groups, build structures, setup art projects, and throw parties!

ToorCon is the major organizer. We also work with other hacker conferences in the US. Your registration fee covers the power and internet -- you create the rest! Play, learn, and share!

ToorCamp 2024

"sunset" "ToorCamp sign"

ToorCamp 2024 is located at Doe Bay Resort & Spa on Orcas Island, WA. The venue features cabins, yurts, domes, and full camping facilities so you can focus on relaxing and hanging out with other technology enthusiasts. ToorCamp will be on June 26-June 30, 2024.

The website and wiki is your source for information, while the Discord is where people tend to talk and is the primary means of communication during ToorCamp, and the Google Group is a good place to post about ride shares, etc. If you think your question may have been asked already, try doing a search first, and don't forget to check the pinned messages in Discord.

During Camp

Talks

Security, Internet, Emerging Technologies, Hardware Hacking, and Privacy. In the Prime Dome, there will be 50-minute talks on Thursday and Friday, 5-minute lightning talks Friday night, and 20-minute talks on Saturday.

The CFP is closed, but you can sign up for Lightning Talks!

Contests

There will be a number of contests going on throughout the camp!

Events and Parties

Can you think of a better way to spend a summer night than kicking back on a hammock, grilling up something on the BBQ, and hanging out with good friends? Whether you just want to kick back on the beach, learn to meditate, stay up all night writing code, or dancing the night away to your favorite hacker DJs, we guarantee you’ll have a great time.

Workshops

We have 3 days of hands-on workshops scheduled. Learn something new or teach your own! Hack a car, build electronics, launch a weather balloon, build a forge, craft, sew & paint, etc... Talk to foxcaptain about adding additional workshops!

Spa

The policies on the Spa. Don't forget a towel!

Villages

ToorCamp as a whole will consist of many different themed villages. Want to stake your claim? Organize a village! Hackerspaces and groups can request a dedicated section of the camp to build their own structures, show off their projects, host parties and events, and whatever they feel like doing to contribute to ToorCamp. Help make the camp awesome by getting your friends together and planning a village!

Self-organized Sessions

In addition to the talks and workshops, villages can organize their own activities.

Previous ToorCamps

2022

ToorcampDeerpunk

ToorCamp 2022 was back again at the Doe Bay Resort & Spa on Orcas Island, WA, with a new Deerpunk theme and the premiere of the NIGHTMRKT. ToorCamp was on July 13-17, 2022.

2020

Virtual ToorCamp 2020 –– with all talks broadcast only –– happened this year instead of an in-person event. Despite the pandemic, we still all managed to camp in our own living rooms and enjoy the event, albeit remotely. We briefly considered a return to in-person in 2021, but the pandemic continued...

2018

Bubble Prime Dome

ToorCamp 2018 was again located at the beautiful Doe Bay Resort & Spa on Orcas Island, WA. ToorCamp was on June 20th-24th.

2016

Phone Tent

ToorCamp 2016 was located at the Doe Bay Resort & Spa on Orcas Island, WA. The venue features 31 on-site cabins, 8 yurts, 2 geodesic domes, and full camping facilities so this year is all about relaxing and hanging out with other technology enthusiasts. We are scheduling the camp on June 8th-12th so it doesn't conflict with the bigger conferences and give people the chance to take some extra time off from work, unwind, learn some new skills, and hack on projects.

2014, 2012

Beach

Neah Bay, WA (Hobuck Beach Resort). Lasers. Prime Dome, Cellular Telephone Network, POTS telephone

In the rainforest, everything gets wet. Towels set out to dry become more damp instead. Condensation drips from exhaust fans.

ToorCamp was on August 8-12, 2012, and July 9-13, 2014.

2009 (Beta)

Missile Silo. Sand, wind, really hard core people. The first ToorCamp was on July 2-5, 2009.
