A themecamp is the gathering of Hyperboreans who not only camp together, but bring something to the experience of Hyperborea, you can call this your gift to the event.

A gift can be anything from Dance Floor, an art car, workshops, a costume booth, yoga sessions, plounge, you name it! Theme camps often (but not always) coordinate and decorate their camp around a theme, you would be surprised at how all-out some camps will go.
