This year’s mOOseman weekend is set to take place in a new venue on a partly forested and open terrain area on private property near Minden, ON. Our site this year is beautiful, and will include a 30’ diameter rock formation fire pit with access to a public beach approximately 5 km or a 5 minute drive from the site with the possibility of on-site water access. Tickets may be purchased by pARTicipants 19 years of age or over via the Eventbrite link below and in-person drink sales starting the week of May 21, 2012. See below for a note below for policies with regards to children.

Note that ALL admissions are on-line ‘will call’ tickets.


This event adheres to these 10 core principles:

An event of mOOseman’s magnitude needs many hands and minds to come together to be a success. Given the scale of this year’s event, it is critical that all pARTicipants volunteer to assist in some capacity to make the event a success.

We’re all volunteers so why not join the fun of working to make the event happen?

Email NOW to get involved and watch for news, updates and call outs from the Team Leads who need YOU! Even a couple of hours of your time before or during the event will make it run that much better. Volunteering is also a great way to meet or get to know our community pARTicipants better.

Art & Art Grants
BurnT is committed to supporting and funding where possible interactive, collaborative, community art. We welcome all pARTicipants to create art at mOOseman that will enhance our collective experience. This is your chance to satisfy a deep soulful desire to create and share your work with others in a non-judgemental, supportive, an inspiring environment! Be creative, think outside the box and tell us your vision! Together, in all modalities of artistic self-expression, we create the magic that is mOOseman! Please email to request and submit an art grant application.

YOUR pARTicipation
No advertising, commerce or spectating. Mooseman is about pARTicipating and respecting the 10 principles above. We’re not about promoting commercial or political causes, participating in commerce, or showing up to be entertained. Bring yourself to the event and make mOOSeman 2012 a success by getting involved.

General Camping Area
The camping is gorgeous with a versatile terrain, which includes a small central crevice that is nestled between two forested hills, circling back to a majestic stone fire pit. In keeping with the natural beauty, minimal camp structure is encouraged in this area. Generators are strongly discouraged. Fires and all sources of open flame may be banned in the general camping area, depending on regional conditions. This is real camping: electricity and potable water will not be available in the area. Foodstuffs and organic refuse should be kept locked away, thereby not encouraging camp invasion by wildlife. There is a public lake with swimming a short (5 km) drive away.

In & Out Policy
Site in and out access for cars will be restricted during the weekend due to space restrictions. Please email if you will require in/out privileges.

Fire & Fireworks Policy
Fires are entirely dependent on environmental conditions and local burn policy. Fireworks are not permitted at the event. Weapons are not permitted at the event.

The leadership team is currently working with a parent committee to include children in some capacity at Mooseman. We will announce our policy with regards to this next week – week of July 4th. Please email if you have any questions/concerns/points to make about children attending this event.

Requests for pet admissions will be considered on a per-case basis to the leadership team. Please email with a statement of the pets character as well as a management plan for the pet or if you have any questions/concerns/points to make about pets attending this event.
