A Brief Guide to Couchsurfing Camps

Mainly in Europe, dedicated members of the hospitality networks have been organising events. These are not simple meet ups for one evening in a bar like those happening all over the world every day. No, what we are talking about here are multiple day events with a festival-like character. Some of these meetings take place in big cities, others are organized as real camps in the countryside. Sometimes the participants stay in the same place, other times they are hosted by local members of hospitality networks. The programmes usually feature cultural activities in the daytime and parties in the evenings. The difference from normal hospitality meetings is not only the multiple day character but also the target group. Couchsurfing Camps are not organised only for the local community and the few travellers in town; these events are meant to attract people from abroad.
...and so it happens. By now there are around 50 annual events throughout the year, so nearly every weekend members of the hospitality networks go travelling to get to the next big event. At every major event, you can always find a large number of well known faces. People get to know each other and many of them attend these events above all to meet each other again. As mentioned before, the frequent participants of Couchsurfing Camps have developed to become a community within a community. And with every new event this community grows bigger and gets stronger. Some people say it is the only place where you can find the spirit of the early days, which got lost when websites got sold to investors, but that is a different story...
This is an overview of all repetitive, and confirmed one-off Couchsurfing Camps we know about. Here you can find the basic data about all City Gatherings and Outdoor Camps in a simple overview, along with a short description by the organizers.

Information
The Belgium Summer Camp is a yearly hospitality exchange event located in The Ardennes southern Belgium. The region is regarded as Belgium's wildest area with plenty of extensive forests and rolling hills. It's easy to reach the camp by train and Brussels is only 1 hour by car. One week of wild camping, craziness and eveyone could have his own program on the camp ground. Year after year we came up to the conclusion that it's kinda useless to make a program of the event, all depends on the weather, people motivation... Some people just prefer to chill out.

Information
The fortified citadel of Mantua is in great danger: invaders (the participants) are gathering before the entrance bridge (Campo Canoa). The local CS, alias the event organizers, will split the partecipants in 2-3 teams and challenge them to conqueur the city through games and trials. However, the other teams competition is not their only issue: the organizers will defend the city at every cost, and with everything they got! So get ready for waterbombs followed by flour attacks, cakes in the face, and a lot more. We can assure you, you WON'T get out of it clean. Each year the Mantua Invasion picks a theme, and the invaders are encouraged to dress accordingly to it (the defenders will!) and to stroll to downtown during the games, as they are. Themes are eclectic: not the usual "devils, angels, ancient egypt, pirates etc". In the past we got: the gügiol (local way to call a pig, games focus on food) invasion, the marriage (dressed as any role you can find in a marriage), the cultural invasion (dressed as local historical characters) and much more. Every theme shall be interpreted with irony and a personal interpretation. During the evening, aperitif followed by buffet dinner, and party on the lake shore, with Dj set. The day after, the participants still able to stand will join us in a chilled, organised excursion.

There were quite a lot of meetings in different towns and cities all over the word. Now it is time to meet again far-away from civilization... In the middle of the Bieszczady Mountains, the wildest part of Poland, there is a cosy hut called Chata Socjologa (no electricity but a huge fire place). During the last weekend of February and the last weekend of July we meet in that magic place. We sit around the fire place, sing, play guitars, drums, play board games, eat some grilled delicacy (shared food), enjoy an awfully tired reindeer on Sunday morning and have a great time. And we make a pig on fire.

It's been 5 long years, but Scotland's premier CouchSurfing event is emerging back into the light, scratching itself and looking for a bottle of Irn Bru... Spurred on by two long-time fans of the event, saddened by its passing in summer of 2013, the aim is to have a fun-filled but casual weekend with travelling friends old and new, taking in the beauty of Scotland's capital, from the peak of Arthur's Seat to the comfort of some of its pubs - and of course, no Edinburgh Rocks would be complete without a Ceilidh! This is classically a "city invasion" style of hospitality/CouchSurfing event, so it will have as little as possible in the way of participation fees and be as much as possible about getting the most you can out of your host city!

Balkan Mafia Meeting (BMM) is is known to be a fun and crazy event. It’s an event intended for people from the Balkans and the Couchsurfing Balkan Mafia Group, those in love with the Balkans or travelling through the Balkans and everyone else. It takes place twice a year (spring and autumn) and every time in a different city/place and in a different country in the Balkans as the idea is to get to know and see more of the Balkans as possible as well as see old friends again and meet new ones. There are always different daily activities organized ranging from sightseeing and hiking to playing games or getting lazy at the beach (depending on where the event is taking place) and partying every night. Drinking games are inevitable from morning till the end. Everyone is free to join any activities of interest or all. Common accommodation is usually pre-arranged (hostel or camping) and due to often recurring attendees and staying together, the event has gained a family character, so the motto of BMM has become > Keeping the family together!
