Preparing for Sonder '23

Step one:

Step two: everything else 

Sonder '23 is a 3 day camping event at an off-grid ranch in Northern Arizona. As such you will need to be fully self-sufficient and self-reliant. This includes food, water, shelter, and adequate gear for warm days and chilly nights. Below are some additional guidelines that we ask you to agree to before submitting your application so that we're all on the same page!


  • come as you are

  • be kind to yourself and others

  • spin fire ONLY in designated locations after attending fire safety training

  • respect the personal and emotional boundaries of others

  • only use alcohol and/or legal substances in a responsible and safe way

  • keep it legal

  • stay on designated paths

  • strongly secure your tent, trash and other personal items (sudden wind gusts at Gateway Ranch can reach 80+ mph)

  • pick up after yourself and keep your camping area tidy

  • practice radical self-reliance (bring everything you need)

  • practice radical self-expression

  • only use propane cooking stoves and fire pits with an on/off switch (no burning wood or trash outside of designated venue-tended fire areas)

  • stay out of restricted areas without proper credentials

  • actively participate in keeping yourself and others safe
