Please Note: Group Camping sign ups have ended for 2019!
Last year, many Melters chimed in asking for a Group Camping option on our survey, so here it is!
Group Camps will receive a reserved camping spot in the woods or meadow, sized so that each member has a place for their tent, and if you share tents, space to create a central lounge area, art installation, whatever you like! This spot will be set aside for your group, no matter when you arrive. A minimum of ten (10) is required to lock in a group camping pass. There is no maximum group size, up until all our group camping spots sell out!
Buy a Lead Melter Pass using the below button if you are the head of your group, and starting a new group. Buy a Melty Friend Pass through your group’s special link if you are joining an existing group.
A very important heads up for Lead Melters: If your group does not meet the required ten (10) minimum (which includes the Lead Melter) by the sign up deadline, or by when Group Camping sells out, your group camping reservation will be cancelled. NO REFUNDS will be given to Lead Melters if you can not meet the Group Camping minimum. Melty Friends will receive a refund if their camp doesn’t meet the minimum. Act fast and organize your crew in advance!
Here are the details of how this works:
- The Lead Melter will purchase a group leader ticket for $45. Once you pay, you will get to name your group. Please choose something absurd that would make Melters everywhere proud.
- Once a Lead Melter starts a group, they’ll get a unique link to send to all their Melty Friends, that’s how you make sure everyone signs up for the right group. This unique link is the only way to join your group. Each Melty Friend Pass costs $45.
- The deadline for a Lead Melter to register is June 15, or when Group Camping sells out. The deadline for a Melty Friend to join is June 15, or when Group Camping sells out. Warning: Group Camping may sell out. We’ve never done this before, so we don’t know.
- Lead Melters will each receive one (1) Early Entry pass to come and claim their group spot. If they can’t make it at 10 am on Thursday, they will need to deputize a Melty Friend. All Melty Friends who do not have an Early Entry pass will enter starting at 2 pm Thursday. There will also be Group Camp greeter there to point you to your spot. Specific instructions will be emailed out to Lead Melters. It’s going to be the responsibility of Lead Melters to pass info to Melty Friends.
Will this sell out?
We have never done this before. Probably. Don’t wait.
What if my friends are lazy and won’t buy their passes quickly?
Group Camping probably isn’t for you. The Lead Melter takes on all the risk here.
Is there special parking for Group Camping?
No. You park like normal.
Does Group Camping include Early Entry?
No. If you don’t have an Early Entry ticket, you can arrive at 2pm Thursday or later. The one exception is that every Lead Melter gets an Early Entry pass so they can come early and welcome Melty Friends.
Will I be able to choose which Group Camping spot my group gets if I’m there first?
No, because we’re sizing each group camp specifically for the number of people in your group. Placement is going to be a random, luck of the draw thing. All the spots are good, tho!
I joined the wrong group or meant to join and accidentally created a new group, help!
Please contact FEVO at firstname.lastname@example.org — they’re running the sign ups!
Help! I’m a Lead Melter but I want to buy Melty Friend passes and I can’t?
You can! Please clear your cache or open a new browser, then click your unique link, and you will be able to purchase more passes.
What’s the size given per person in group camping?
64 square feet per person, enough space to pitch a reasonably sized tent. Please keep in mind that there may be trees and other flora joining you in your camp.
Can I group camp in my car?
No. This offering is for tent camping only.
Can I cancel my group or get a refund?
Lead Melters are on the hook and will not receive a refund if their group fails to reach the minimum number. Melty Friends will get a refund if their group doesn’t reach the minimum. Only the Lead Melter can cancel a group.
I can’t go anymore, can I give my Melty Friend pass away?
Sure. Just forward the email to someone else and let the Lead Melter know. You don’t need to tell us.
I haven’t heard anything about my group? Aren’t you going to email us?
We email the Lead Melters. Check in with your Lead Melter for any details we’ve shared or for any questions you have first.
