General Information

LOCATION
The venue where this magic manifests is the Evans Lake Forest Sanctuary. Located in the Squamish River Valley, on the unceded territory of the Skwxwu7mesh people, Evans Lake is an hour and a half drive from Vancouver, located 15 kilometres north of Squamish B.C. The secluded lake is surrounded by forested hills and hiking trails, overseen by the mammoth peaks of the Coast Range, and glacier-fed rivers.


ACCESSIBILITY
The camp is on a rather hilly terrain that may be a concern for those with mobility issues. We will try and accommodate you as best as we can, and find solutions together.


TRANSPORTATION
Parking is very limited, so carpooling is strongly encouraged. You can let us know on your registration form if you need a ride or if you can offer a ride. We are often able to coordinate rides to Faerie Camp.

As well, you can take the Greyhound to Squamish and we can arrange for you to be picked up at the station.


FACILITIES
Besides a kitchen/dining hall and sleeping cabins, there is a large recreation hall ideal for heart circles, complete with comfy chesterfields and wood-burning fireplace. We have use of a large log cabin as meditation, bodywork, and quiet space.

Then, there is the pristine mountain lake itself—ideal for canoeing and swimming. Bathing suits are allowed, but not encouraged. The lake comes with all amenities, including canoes. There is also an archery range for those feeling particularly butch. The site has 10 km (6 miles) of hiking trails around the lake.

We will include additional details to your confirmation letter.


ACCOMMODATIONS
There are eight heated, ‘rustic’ cabins, each having 11 single beds and washrooms attached, as well as additional sleeping rooms in the Recreation Hall for those with mobility/health issues.

You must bring all your bedding.


TENTS
There is space behind the cabins for those inclined to sleep in tents. Space is assigned on a first come, first served basis. May weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for rain and sudden drops in temperature.

The registration fee is the same regardless of whether you choose to sleep in a cabin, tent, or vehicle.


MEALS

There will be three meals per day. The talented kitchen staff produces appetizing, well-balanced, and nutritious meals, always including fresh vegetables and salad. They also prepare evening snacks for us to munch by the campfire. They can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and many other specialised diets. Please indicate your dietary needs on your registration form.


MOBILE PHONES
Signal reception is very erratic, spotty, and unreliable at camp. It is best to put your mobile phone away and fully interact with your Faerie family face to face.

There is a phone with the staff at Evans Lake available in case of emergencies.


SMOKING
There is no smoking inside any building, however, there is a designated area for smoking outside.


ALCOHOL & DRUGS
This is a sober gathering, and we require participants to respect the right of others to enjoy themselves in an atmosphere of sobriety. Please do not consume intoxicants during this gathering.


NUDITY
Nudity is allowed in all areas, but cover your butt in the dining hall and please respect our hosts by keeping sexual activity out of sight of the staff.


SAFETY, RESPECT, AND FAERIE ETHOS
We can all ensure the quality of the gathering by adhering to the sacred principles of Faeriedom: safety, confidentiality, and love and respect for one another, including the caring staff of Evans Lake. Please take or post photos and videos with permission of the subjects.

Our ethos calls on each of us to be responsible for our own experiences while respecting the dignity and enjoyment of others. This includes:

  • SUBJECT/subject consciousness.
  • Ask for what you need or want.
  • Speak your truth with compassion.
  • Be direct, be honest. Let your yes mean yes and your no mean no.
  • But above all, be kind and patient with one another.
