Welcome to Things That Swing!
TTS for short. This is the 2017 edition. We'll post our Placement here soon as we know. Typically, that's in early July.
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.
