Tents

BornHack is first and foremost a tent camp. You need to bring a tent to sleep in. Most people go with some friends and make a camp somewhere at the venue. See also the section on Villages - you might be able to find some like minded people to camp with.

Cabins

There will be cabins. More info soon.

Infodesk and CERT Info by the Info team

CERT

CERT is short for Community Emergency Response Team. In case of a dangerous situation (accidents, fire and so on) these are the people to contact.

The infodesk is where you go to find an organizer when you have questions of any kind. The infodesk is also where you go to:

Villages Info by the Info team

What is a village?

If this is your first hacker camp the term 'village' might be confusing but it is fairly simple: a village is just a spot on the campsite where you and a bunch of your friends/like minded people camp together. Apart from people's individual tents which they sleep in, many villages bring a large common tent where they can hack and hang out during the day.

You don't have to stay in a village if you don't want to, putting up a tent somewhere by yourself is perfectly fine. Having a camp with friends without calling it a village is also fine.

Registering a village

You can register your village here! If you don't want to make your own village you might be able to find and join one that suits your interests. Get in touch with the orga team if you have any questions!

Renting village tents

Villages can also rent village tents via us. The tents will be ready when you arrive and will be taken down again after you leave. The tents have optional floors and you can rent folding tables and chairs as needed. You do not have to register a village or have a concept to rent a big tent.
