Welcome to Things That Swing

TTS for short. This is the 2019 edition, and we're out-of-our-minds crazy with excitement to celebrate our 11th consecutive year of organized madness. Let’s swing!

TTS began in 2009 when a few friends from Brooklyn didn't know any better than to think they could produce a theme camp their first year on the playa (RADICAL SELF-RELIANCE). We made it work (COMMUNAL EFFORT) and have been back every year since (PARTICIPATION). We ranged up, down and sideways over 4:30 Avenue from Portal to Plaza, until a slightly more amplified year than we'd ever produced before (RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION), resulted in an invitation to contribute to the 2:00 Sector (GIFTING). We couldn't have been happier with the new neighborhood (IMMEDIACY), and we're still living large (for a small camp) on the edge of this glorious city. 

Our camp vibe is usually chill, like hanging out in a neighborhood park with an extended family of friendly squatters (RADICAL INCLUSION). As our name suggests, we like things that swing; this has included swing seats, a porch swing, an aerial silk, a trapeze, many hammocks, and a few double-pendulum kinetic art mobiles (DECOMMODIFICATION). We also feature a multi-dome complex for use as community and event space. We take the 10 Principles seriously (CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY); as seriously as anything can be taken. Come check us out before we return to the dust (LNT). 

See our EVENTS page for a list of in-camp activities. We hope you’ll visit us early and often.

Take a look at our JOIN page for more information about how we camp. If you’re looking for a camp, we’ve still got some space left for new swingers.
