Camp Information
Please note that the camp facilities manager has requested that we do not take Samish Island road straight to the camp-site, as residents of the neighborhood frequently call to complain if people drive down that road.


Camp Kirby has put up signs at each of the detour turns to help guide you to the camp site.

It is imperative to follow the vehicle safety procedures that are posted on the site. Those rules are to drive no more than 5 miles per hour, and to honk at the top and bottom of the hill, wait and listen for a response before proceeding down/up on the one-car hill.

Please park behind the health house (look for the red car on the map!). Please leave room between vehicles, between your vehicle and the nearby buildings, and ensure that you are not blocking anyone in. It is important for people to be able to move around the buildings which are in game space, and it is important for people to have access to their vehicles in case of an emergency.


As requested by the site manager, please do not tag the site on Social Media.

If you are a new player, have not already filled out a legal release form yet this year, or your emergency contact information has changed, please make sure to sign a legal release form at check in. Camp Kirby requires that we have this information on file for all participants.

Per Camp Kirby’s Main Lodge Kitchen rules, all food prepared in the Main Lodge kitchen must be prepared by persons who hold a current food handler’s permit for specific State of Washington Health Department guidelines. Regulations vary according to the size and duration of the facility rental; please see their website for details. So please bring your food handler’s permit if you wish to prepare any food in the main kitchen, thanks.

This event will have an official Afters meet and greet. Come join us after the game to discuss your adventures, or just to hang out with the other LARPers.

Announcements from Staff

Kristen W is the new General Manager.

Mari MH has joined Rules Team!

There have been 10 new player characters character guided for this event! Welcome to the Wonderful World of Oz!

Safety will be walking through site prior to game on to search for any safety concerns we should be aware of during event. Logistics and Story Coordinators will be informed of any issues and will make the information available to players.

Additionally, since this event will be colder, please note that fires are allowed in the main dining hall with the following requirements:
We must use our own supplies (firewood, etc.), not camp supplies.
The fire must not be left unattended at any time. If you start a fire in the dining hall, you must not leave unless it has been put out completely.
