Bad Girls of Portland presents HOWL 2019 – the Glamping version.  A kinky camping event outside of Oregon City for womxn only (which we define as self-identified women and gender expansive individuals who find home in women’s spaces.)  No more roughing it (unless you want to)! Only 50 tickets are being sold to this year’s event, so buy your tickets and reserve your camping spot, book a room, or secure an RV space early.

Ticket prices:

Bad Girls members and Sister organizations can get their discounted tickets NOW. Check your email inbox for your discount code, or contact treasurer@pdxbadgirls.net to get your code.

General admission tickets go on sale starting June 11th.

 General Admission (including tent camping space) is only $135.00 for all 4 days. That is $33.75 per day including meals. In other words, this is a fantastic deal for a comfortable, secure, private kinky event!

For an extra fee, you can reserve indoor, air-conditioned sleeping spots, hook up your RV to available power and water supplies, OR totally go for the works and add a shared or private indoor room to your weekend! Indoor sleeping spaces cost $50 to $210, depending on the room type. RV spaces are $50.00 extra.

 All tickets, and room prices are listed on the Eventbrite website –  https://howl2019.eventbrite.com

Event Details:

This year we are camping in style at HOWL and you have the opportunity to really glamp it up. We will be on land owned and maintained by Kinky family, surrounded by trees and secluded from the outside world. We have access to the lower level of a remarkable lodge. Amenities include manicured, flat lawns for tent camping; an entertainment/movie room with loungers; an outdoor kitchen and dining area; large hot tub; indoor restrooms; an outdoor party shower; a fire pit, and a babbling brook to dip your toes in. We also have access to another house nearby on the property, with multiple sleeping rooms.

 There are multiple places to get your kink on, inside and out. Outside dungeon space on  the patio will have two St. Andrews Crosses; a spanking bench; two slings; uneven bars; stocks; and multiple massage tables. You will find various locations that are great for suspension work, a pony track, a big punishment rock, and, of course, the forest. There is a huge play structure and a play house for littles! Indoor play space includes a small concrete room for interrogation complete with bondage chair and other more informal spaces.

The site is not completely accessible, but it comes close. The camping areas are flat lawns, the areas of the main house we’re using are all on one one level, the outdoor shower is a small step up, and there is at least one restroom can accommodate a wheelchair. We will have volunteers driving an ATV, to shuttle folks, gear and toys.

Workshops and Special Events 

The Bad Girls HOWL Committee is planning a wonderful weekend for your kinky pleasure. There will 4-6 workshops presented by community members throughout the event. Check back for updates on these educational and fun workshops.

 We also invite you to participate in 3 very special events throughout the weekend. Thursday evening, we will have an Orgasm Circle to send out healing energy to a Bad Girl who is recovering from a motorcycle accident. On Friday evening, there will be a Primal/Prey Hunt: “On a primal hallowed night and savage moonlit eve, the hounds will bay… will you hunt with the Host or be their prey?”  On Saturday, there will be pony, pup, and critter playtime featuring: “agility for the pups; jumping, pole bending, and carting for the ponies; and… we’ll figure it out for other critters.” If you have other ideas for group activities/scenes that would be enhanced by more participants, please email sparkette at secretary@pdxbadgirls.net and she will ask the HOWL Committee to work with you to make it happen!

Meals

We are providing 6 meals: Thursday dinner; brunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday; and Sunday brunch. There will also be Continental-style breakfast for our early risers and a variety of  snacks available all day. All meals and snacks will include omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Meals are included in the ticket price. No discount for not eating the food provided or bringing your own food, though you are welcome to do so if you have special dietary requirements. We will work with you to provide prep/cooking space.

 In order to be more sustainable and reduce the amount of trash we will have to haul out and pay to get rid of at the end of the event, we ask that you bring your own mess kit (i.e. drink containers/coffee cup, water bottles, bowls, plates, flatware, cloth napkin). A dish-washing  area will be set up for your use. No paper plates or plastic flatware please and there will be none provided. Thank you.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available for those who need it: We have 8 work-trade positions available, for either 50% or 100% off ticket prices. We do ask that folks asking for 100% work-trade commit to 4 hours of their trade at either set-up or breakdown or both. Working set-up or breakdown comes with the added bonus of being at HOWL a day early or staying an extra day after! You will be assigned tasks based on ability. If interested, please contact Jen at humboldtjen@gmail.com or Lady Shallan at Katerra@gmail.com please include HOWL in the subject line.

 Skill Sharing and Play

Like a kinky un-conference, we will have a skill sharing meetup board on which people interested in teaching one of their skills (or discussing one of their passions) can post topics or information on kinds of play they are looking for or wanting to present. It’s up to us!

We ask all attendees to practice risk aware consensual kink, for the safety of themselves and others. No alcohol or drugs please. Fire play may be restricted to the fire pit area or gravel drives only. Safer sex supplies will be available in the dungeon.

A Few More Details

We will be sending out a  recommended packing list to all attendees, which includes flashlights or lanterns, sunscreen, bug spray, water storage containers, trash bags, and all other preparations for rain-or-shine camping.

The property is only about 20 minutes from the Oregon City exit on I-205, so ticket holders may, if they prefer, sleep elsewhere and drive in and out in order to participate in what could be regarded as a four-day-long womxn’s play party. After you buy your ticket, if you know if you are going to need in-and-out privileges, please email sparkette at secretary@pdxbadgirls.net — she will try to make sure that no one has to play “car Tetris” to make that possible.

NO DOGS except service animals.

Come and play with us!

All tickets, and room prices are listed on the Eventbrite website –  https://howl2019.eventbrite.com
