FAQ Sky Jam
How do I get there?
See complete directions at the bottom of this page. Getting there can be challenging for some. The route is paved most of the way but not the last mile which is steep and narrow in some places. Any vehicle can make it if you drive very slowly. And of course if you have a four-wheel or all-wheel drive bring that.
Do you have a refund or cancellation policy?
Yes! If you cancel before October 10th you will receive a half refund. After that, no refund is possible. If you cancel due to illness at the last minute you will receive a credit for a future campout. If we cancel the event for any reason then you will get a full refund minus any service charges imposed by our ticketing platform.
What about masks, tests, and vaccines?
All are optional and at your own discretion.
I"m not feeling well, should I come anyway?
No, absolutely not.. Stay at home and rest. We will see you at the next campout when you are well.
Can I bring my kids?
Not this time, unfortunately. At the new property we are going to have a couple of gatherings first to learn more about what works well on the land and what facilities are needed to make campouts kid friendly.
Can I take pictures?
Photography/video by professional staff only.
Can I bring my dog, cat, goat, ferret, other non-human animal?
No, please leave ALL pets at home. Excluding bona fide service animals.
What about substances?
This is a recreational drug and alcohol-free event. Do not bring, buy, sell, consume, or be under the influence anywhere on property. If you need an exemption for a genuine health concern please contact us at least 48 hours prior to arrival to discuss.
Are all meals included?
Yes, and by that we mean that a mostly organic, vegetarian (vegan/gf options) breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on each full day of the campout. On the first day of camp only dinner will be served and on the last day breakfast and lunch but no dinner.
What's this "meal shift" thing and does everyone have to do it?
Yes everyone in attendance will help out with one meal during the jam. This keeps costs down and many find it to be a wonderful way to connect with others and contribute to our collective nourishment. It will all be scheduled and organized when we are all together at camp.

A mix of both.

Ask your phone or nav device for directions to "0 Skyview Rd, Boulder Creek, CA 95006". This is NOT the actual address you are going to! It will however get you close and you'll see our signs out when you get to Skyview Road at the top of the ridge. You'll follow our signs from there and it's less that a quarter mile at that point.
Do this before leaving home! There's no cell service as you drive up the last few miles so you need directions/data loaded before you head up into the mountains.
** NOTE: Getting there can be challenging for some. The route is paved much of the way but not the last mile which is steep and narrow in places. Any vehicle can make it if you drive very slowly. And of course if you have a four-wheel or all-wheel drive bring that. And in case you don't, then may it ease your mind to know that Prius, Mini Cooper, Tesla, minivans, etc. have all made it up just fine with careful driving.
