Community Provisions


Community Provisions are generally micro-provisions from $25-100, meant to assist with:

– Fuel for Community Fire. Examples: Fire that provides functional and/or aesthetic heat to Participants during SOAK.
– Theme Camp Frontage Decoration. Examples: Signage, lighting, creative camp boundary barriers like flags, fabric to throw over things you probably didn’t make or alter, like a vehicle or a carport.
– Projects that assist the SOAK community, at large, on site. These may or may not be pretty. Examples: Porta Potty Project, which decorates the portos for everyone. Yellow bikes, which provide & fixes bikes for riding, not owning.
– Provisions are not meant to fund Theme Camp swag or things that primarily benefit a particular camp’s members. #hecknopluggyplay
