What are the rules around safety & consent?

Summer Camp is a safe place for everyone to be their beautiful, shimmering (and shimmying!) selves. It’s a celebration of who we are and how we love ourselves and others.

Behaviour that makes anyone feel unsafe or unwelcome is NOT ON!

We have zero tolerance for racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism or any other hate-based discrimination.

Don’t do it or you’ll get the boot.

Likewise, YOU are the only person who can make decisions about your body.

Don’t touch or photograph anyone you don’t know without their enthusiastic and explicit consent.

Be respectful. Be open-minded. And be kind to everyone. <3

What Happens If the event is cancelled?

In the event of some new, awful strain of COVID (Gods help us, please no!) or a lockdown we didn’t see coming, all tickets bought through authorised sellers will be automatically refunded, minus a 10% levy.

This levy will help pay the organisers, performers and planners who worked so tirelessly to create this incredible event during a global pandemic. 

While we all hope this doesn’t happen, we recognise that our beloved arts and live entertainment industries have suffered over the past few years and want to support those who work behind the scenes.

Know your 10% will be supporting the arts in Australia.
