Summer Intention is the summer camp-out version of the famous Intention retreat. This is a four day, three night event where a village of all ages convenes to celebrate, share, workshop, perform, dance, play, heal, connect, share meals, and have fun. Intention is a time and space for being authentically ourselves in a dynamic, loving and inspirational community setting.

Meals are provided during the weekend as part of your ticket. Our excellent kitchen pod will be creating vegetarian meals for our culinary delight!  

Intention incorporates dance parties, kids play space, workshops, rituals, tribal market, yoga, art, DIY culture, as well as shared meal times and spontaneous fun.  Intention is a warm, wonderful and special event that many return to every year to re-create a transformational container, one that continues to weave a vibrant community together every event.

It's awesome!


Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 12th at 7pm! Tier 1 tickets may sell out fast!

Ticket prices as follows:

Tier 1 $100 (first 20 tickets)
Tier 2 $125 (next 50 tickets or until end of May 31)
Tier 3 $150 (until June 23rd*)

Last minute tickets at the gate will be $180.

Youth 6-17 (accompanied by a parent or guardian) are $50
Kids up to 5 attend for free

Discounted tickets will go on sale at the same time as regular price tickets. We ask those people with a high enough income to buy regular price tickets, so that lower priced tickets can go to those who really need them. 

This is an honour system, and everyone can choose the price they feel they can best afford (until the lower priced tickets run out.)

* June 23rd is the cut-off for registration so that we know how much food to buy.  If you know you are coming, but won't have the funds until after the cut-off, get in touch with us and we can make some arrangements.

Tickets are not refundable.


As part of our event co-creation, we are asking all participants to sign up for a shift to complete their registration. This may include volunteering at the gate, helping with decor, cooking for your friends in the kitchen, with peer support, facilitating a game, in the Kid's zone.  You can choose which parts of the event you are stoked to support.


Intention will feature a wide variety of electronic music acts and DJs from across BC and spanning many different genres.  Live music acts are also welcome.

Music line-up to come.

If you would like to DJ or perform live, please email party[at]intentiongathering[dot]org with details about your style and your setup (if it's more than "just my laptop and a controller") and links to your music if possible.


Intention is an opportunity for individuals to share skills, magic and love with the community. This year, we hope to have many talented folks stepping up to offer their gifts at the gathering in the form of workshops. Every attendee at Intention is invited to give a workshop, on whatever topic they desire.  You can see some of the workshops that were offered at Winter Intention here:  http://winter.intentiongathering.org/participate/workshop_previews

Contact workshops[at]intentiongathering[dot]org for more info.  Online web-form application coming soon!


Meals provided will be vegetarian (probably vegan and gluten-free - will confirm soon). Please feel free to bring your own scrumptious food, especially if you have special dietary requirements, please bring whatever you need for that. There's a lot of opportunity to help with preparation, cooking, and cleaning, so don't be shy to pitch in! =)

Don't forget to bring your own dishes and cutlery!


Our Tribal Market plans to be bustling with 10-12 unique vendors this year. These artisans will be bringing one of a kind pieces, handcrafted goodies, feathery goodness and costume pieces galore for your purchase. You’re sure to find a thing or two to compliment your costumes, fill your tummy or soothe your skin. So plan on bringing SOME CASH to spend on these wonderful creations!

For more info, or to apply to vend email tribalmarket[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .


Art & decor are at the very core of every festival. They create a fun landscape or visual candy for us to explore and appreciate. If you have the desire to share your art with the community, please contact decor[at]intentiongathering[dot]org.

BRING YOUR SACRED ITEMS to add to the various altars which will be created throughout the event space. 


As well, we will have an opening and closing ritual (with optional participation). If you are interested in contributing to this, or being a part of the Ritual Pod, or just looking for more information contact ritual[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .


Everyone is encouraged to find their own way to connect into the festival flow and become involved in the daily life, music and general production of the event. 

Check back at this website later this spring, for more info! Or join our mailing /chat list (not too busy, but good stuff WILL get posted) at:

Intention is co-creative and participant-driven. We share our personal gifts and learn from the community. It is an opportunity to work together with old friends and new faces to create a safe container for a rich exploration of music, art, self-expression and creativity. We are always looking for volunteers to help with organizing and creation. If you would like to be involved in the organization process, please contact contact the org team at info[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .
