Find your crew!
Select from a variety of camping options created with the community in mind.
Goddess Grove
A sanctuary solely for self-identified females. It is a place of solace, celebration, and playfulness that serves as a campground (first come first serve as space is limited) or a meeting point for women-based groups and new friends. The Grove will hold space for an ARISE Daily Women’s Group every morning at 10 am. This is an opportunity to drop in with Arising sisters to reflect, support, and ground.
Family Camp
For families with kids 16 and under who want to be a little further away from all the excitement but close to what is important to the kiddos. The camp is close to the festival entrance, the shower area, Children’s Village and the food vendors. Space is limited and is first come first serve. Pre-register and guarantee your family a 10×10 space in family camp on the ARISE ticketing page or at the box office.
ADA Camp
The preferred camp ground for ARISE guests with special needs. To be qualified for the ADA campground one must have a state-certified handicapped parking placard must be displayed in each vehicle.
Ecstatic Sober Camp
A collaboration of festival-goers who choose to remain clean and sober at ARISE. Music lovers seeking a home base free of substances along like-minded attendees can request space upon arrival to camp and grow within the Ecstatic Sober Camp.
Additionally, upgrades are available for early camping, car camping, VIP upgrades and more! Check out the ticketing page for more details.
