ToorCamp is a multi-day gathering where we focus on technology and its integration into society. This wiki can be used as a tool for organizing or prototyping anything, including campsites, carpools, sharing tools and other sundries. It can also be used to record and share what we have done at the camp. The official website,, is the authoritative source for information. Our Google Group:!forum/toorcamp is where people tend to talk.

We are inspired by the hacker camps in The Netherlands and Germany. We hope to form groups, build structures, setup art projects, 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 2016


ToorCamp 2016 will be 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.

ToorCamp as a whole will consist of many different themed Campsites. If you are interested in running your own campsite, please fill out our campsite sign up form, and create a wiki page to help organize your group.
