FreezerBurn Principles


We respect all individuals who form our community. We honor our diversity by obtaining enthusiastic consent for all interactions. We believe only yes means yes. Personal and camp boundaries must be respected at all times.


Anyone can be part of our community. We welcome and respect the stranger.

Leave No Trace

We respect the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Civic Responsibility

We value civil society. When we organize events, we assume responsibility for the public welfare and for communicating civic responsibilities to participants.


Radical expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.


We encourage the individual to discover, exercise, and rely on his or her inner resources. We are all responsible for our own experiences.


We create social environments without commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist substituting consumption for participation.


We are devoted to acts of giving. Gifting does not expect a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

Communal Effort

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote, and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.


We are committed to a radically participatory ethic. Transformative change–in the individual or in society–can occur only through deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.


We overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers.
