Site/Events Culture Notes ~ Please Read:
This event is created and presented in perfect love and perfect trust; the site will be considered sacred space throughout the event. Event attendees may attend as many or as few of the scheduled activities as they choose. Any participant who violates the safety of the space or others, or violates the law, will be asked to leave immediately. No alcohol, firearms, or federally illegal drugs are allowed on site. (We've been asked about onsite marijuana use. If you have a prescription, you may partake in your own vehicle. Sharing with others or open use onsite is not allowed. Thank you for your understanding.) Due to allergy and wildlife concerns, only service animals are allowed on site.
The site will be clothing-optional (which does mean optional ~ clothes or no clothes, it’s all good). There will be an Aphrodite/Pan Shrine available for those participants 18+ ~ no exceptions. The main ritual Saturday night in the Sean Ciall tradition will be skyclad for all ritual participants. Event attendees may choose not to attend the main ritual but spectators are not allowed. All other events are clothing-optional rather than required skyclad.
Please observe these Site Rules during the ESP Campout
- Please keep noise to a conversational level between the hours of 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.
- No use of cameras or other picture-taking devices.
- No firearms, alcohol, or illegal drugs allowed on site. (We’ve been asked about onsite marijuana use. If you have a prescription, you may partake in your own vehicle. Sharing with others or open use onsite is not allowed. Thank you for your understanding.)
- No pets except service animals.
- The site is clothing-optional at this event—you may wear clothes or no clothes as you prefer.
- No personal fires allowed. Camp stoves are allowed in the Camping Spaces and Outdoor Kitchen.
- Supervise your children at all times. Children of all ages are welcome, but are present at the discretion and under the direct responsibility of their attending adults. The rituals may contain mature themes that may be inappropriate for some children.
- Shower (with soap) before entering pool or hot tubs. Be sure to wash off any body paint or adornments.
- In case of a medical emergency, call 911. In case of medical mishap, call for first aid using radios located at the registration booth, Outdoor Kitchen, or Longhouse front room. Self-service first aid (band-aids, etc.) are located in the Longhouse front room.
- Confine all sexual activity to the Aphrodite/Pan Shrine (ages 18+ only) and your personal tents/vehicles. No sexual activity in the pool or hot tubs.
- We ask that all who choose to see the weekends’ rituals participate, which means at minimum standing in the circle and being respectful of what is going on (no spectators).
- Out of respect for the dusk ritual, please do not enter or leave the site by car from 8:00 to 10:00 pm Saturday night.
- If you violate site rules or the law, the Event Staff reserve the right to expel you from the site.

A Note About Children:
This site features a swimming pool, hot tub, and many natural outside features that pose potential risks for unattended children; therefore, children younger than the age of 13 MUST be under adult supervision at ALL times during this event. With respect to the pool, an individual adult may be responsible FOR NO MORE THAN 3 CHILDREN (those under 13). Other than the kids’ workshop and the popsicle party, there are no organized children’s activities, although there may be some games for kids.
A Note About Noise at the Longhouse:
The Longhouse requires that participants keep the noise level very low after 10:00 pm. Loud noise includes car alarms (so make sure your alarm is turned off), car muffler issues or backfiring, loud motorcycle engines, drumming or other music, and loud talking in the parking lot (voices carry over to the neighbors’ property). Also, please be considerate by entering and exiting the site quietly.
A Note About Parking and Carpooling:
Parking availability at the Longhouse is limited – please carpool if at all possible. Park near the outdoor "Registration" booth or along the stretch of the driveway near the outdoor kitchen and stage areas. Please park close to the adjacent vehicle, but be considerate of vehicles displaying disability license plates or signs. Once at the site, due to limited space and potential number of participants, we advise that folks leave most personal belongings in their vehicles. There is no public transit option for the Longhouse, so if you are able to offer a ride or are looking for one, please feel free to post ride availability or requests to the OLOTEAS community email list or our Facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/oloteas/).
Take 520 eastbound to the Redmond Way/Fall City (WA 202) Exit. Turn right at the light at the end of the off ramp. Go approximately 5 miles on Redmond-Fall City Road. Driveway is on the right, 23301 (directly across from Guardwell Storage). If you pass Albertson's, you have gone about 100 yards too far. When you first pull into the drive you should immediately see a large wooden sign that says The Longhouse; if you don’t you are in the neighbors’ drive.
