This group is a 501c3 non-profit arts organization founded in 2005 by a community of artists in the Seattle area. Originally inspired by our shared Burning Man experiences, Ignition Northwest now fuels community through participatory arts, events, and education. Ignition Northwest provides four types of grants for art projects going to Critical Northwest. Their goal is to encourage art that represents the Ten Principles of the Burning Man community. Artists working in experimental, emerging, cross-disciplinary, and traditional categories are all encouraged to apply. This program is to help inspire and facilitate new ideas and artists. The only camping for Masons that will be allowed will be for assisting the Caretakers with maintaining the park during this event.

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO KEEP IN MIND...
When you're knee deep in camping gear, it's easy to forget some of the most important items like flashlights or band aids. Before your next trip, create a must-bring bag with all ten of these camping essentials so you're never without that one thing you forgot to bring.
First Aid Kit
Burns, scratches, cuts or bumps—one of these is bound to happen on an active camping trip, making a first-aid kit one of the most important camping essentials you could bring. Don't arrive at your campsite without it, and be sure to take it on your excursions, as well.
Whether you're using it to protect the bottom of your tent or as an extra shelter at your campsite, tarps are essential. They're easy to fold, and only take up a small amount of space in your camping bags.
Lantern, Flashlight or Headlamp
Whether you're stumbling to the bathroom after dark or sneaking a midnight snack, you should always have a lantern and/or flashlight in your camping essentials box. Be sure your light source is easy to reach in the car, in the event that you arrive at your site after dark.
Alternate Weather Wear
You've checked the weather forecast for weeks—no rain, only sun. Unfortunately, the weather can change at the drop of a dime, leaving you stuck in the rain or huddling around your campfire. With an extra set of clothes, you won't have to worry about sudden weather changes; you can swap out wet clothes for dry ones or layer during a cold front.
Don't Forget Your Camera!!!
Must-Have Foods for Your Camping Trip
Cooking at the campground doesn't have to be difficult. All it takes is a little bit of planning, the right supplies and a few key ingredients.
To simplify preparation for your upcoming trips, keep a list of food to take camping.
Consider keeping a camping pantry packed with key ingredients and non-perishable foods, so each time you go camping, your staples are ready to go.
Depending on your portable kitchen, campground cooking can be quick and easy with one-pot recipes or extravagant with multiple burner stoves, camping grills and Dutch ovens.
Marinating meats, pre-cooking potatoes, and chopping veggies at home can help with cooking once you're at the campground.
Here are the key ingredients and food you should take camping every time you go:
