Welcome to Things That Swing!
TTS for short. This is the 2017 edition. This year we have a new neighborhood! Come and visit us at B&2:15!
TTS was started in 2009 by a few friends from Brooklyn with the crazy idea of producing a theme camp their first year to the playa. We made it work and have been back every year since, ranging up down the 4:30 Avenue from Portal to Plaza. After four years contributing to the 4:30 Plaza and the G Street "Inner Esplanade", we recognized the pace there felt a lot more like home to these Brooklyn burners than the Manhattan-like frenzy of the Esplanade.
Our camp vibe is on the chill side, like hanging out in a neighborhood park, with an extended family of friendly squatters. As our name suggests, we like things that swing; this has included swing sets, a porch swing, an aerial silk, shaded hammocks, and double-pendulum kinetic art mobiles. We also feature multiple domes of our own design for use as community and event spaces.
Check out our EVENTS page for a full list of in-camp activities you're welcome to join.
Speaking of joining: we currently do have space available for new campmates in 2017. We're open to anyone from the most seasoned burner to the rawest birgin. Take a look at our JOIN page for more information about how we camp.
