Summer Intention 16.5


Ticket information coming soon...

Summer Intention is the summer camp-out version of the famous Intention retreat. This is a four day, three night event where a village of all ages convenes to celebrate, share, workshop, perform, dance, play, heal, connect, share meals, and have fun. Intention is a time and space for being authentically ourselves in a dynamic, loving and inspirational community setting.

Meals are provided during the weekend as part of your ticket. Our excellent kitchen pod will be creating vegetarian meals for our culinary delight!

During our four days of Intention together, we plan to share several dance parties, live music, gatherings by the fire, Kids Play Space, spiritual and personal connections, Tribal Market, Yoga, Creative Workshops, Art, as well as shared meal times and spontaneous fun.

It's awesome!


More information regarding tickets and prices will be coming soon! Stay tuned!


As part of our event co-creation, we are asking all participants to sign up for volunteer shifts to complete their registration. This may include volunteering at the gate, helping with decor, in the kitchen, with peer support, during a game, in the Kid's zone. Watch for the volunteer sign up lists that will accompany your registration (or shortly there after), so you can choose which parts of the event you are stoked to support.


Summer Intention will be playing DJ music during the day and into the evening. Please contact party[at]intentiongathering[dot]org if you are interested in being a live act or DJ. Live musical acts are VERY welcome.


Intention is an opportunity for individuals to share skills, magic and love with the community. This year, we hope have many talented folks stepping up to offer their gifts at the gathering in the form of workshops. Every attendee at Intention is invited to give a workshop, on whatever topic they desire.

Contact workshops[at]intentiongathering[dot]org for more info.


Meals provided will accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets. Please feel free to bring your own scrumptious food and cutlery. If you have special dietary requirements please bring whatever you need for that. There's a lot of opportunity to help with preparation, cooking, and cleaning, so don't be shy to pitch in! =)


Our Tribal Market plans to be bustling with 10-12 unique vendors this year. These artisans will be bringing one of a kind pieces, handcrafted goodies, feathery goodness and costume pieces galore for your purchase. You’re sure to find a thing or two to compliment your costumes, fill your tummy or soothe your skin. So plan on bringing SOME CASH to spend on these wonderful creations!

The vendor application form will be available on the website closer to the event. We will announce it here.
Contact tribalmarket[at]intentiongathering[dot]org for more info.


Art & decor are at the very core of every festival. They create a fun landscape or visual candy for us to explore and appreciate. If you have the desire to share your art with the community, please contact decor[at]intentiongathering[dot]org.

BRING YOUR SACRED ITEMS to add to the various altars which will be created throughout the event space.

As well, we will have an opening and closing ritual (with optional participation). If you are interested in contributing to this, or being a part of the Ritual Pod, or just looking for more information contact ritual[at]intentiongathering[dot]org

Everyone is encouraged to find their own way to connect into the festival flow and become involved in the daily life, music and general production of the event. REMEMBER Watch for the volunteer sign up lists that will accompany your registration(or shortly there after)!

Intention is co-creative and participant-driven. We share our personal gifts and learn from the community.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with organizing and creation. If you would like to be involved in the organization process, please contact contact the org team at info[at]intentiongathering[dot]org or one of the hosts on the Facebook page.
