Kids Camp at Firefly
Bringing kids to Firefly and want to coordinate? There are community resources for parents and guardians of children at the event, and an accessible and quiet Kids Camp area near lower parking. Whether or not you would like to camp in the kids area — it's not required — we can still collaborate on art and other projects that can be accomplished by younger Fireflies.
Join the Kids Camp mailing list and Facebook group!

Just the TP by WendyWTF
While peeing in the woods is A-OK… leaving your own personal log behind is not. And your “hidden” toilet paper will be an unwelcome gift for Leave No Trace volunteers to deal with. Create a system before you need it: carry a baggy!
On Volunteering: Stop signing up for so many volunteer shifts! It’s ridiculous the way you are hogging them all. Save some for the rest of us. Why should you get to have all the fun?
Asks and Offers: Share Desires, Offer Fulfillment
Are you looking for or offering rides? space in a theme camp? Help with an art project? Roommates? We’ll publish Asks and Offers at the end of every GLOWBE.
Place your own ask or offer at https://fireflyartscollective.org/desires <https://fireflyartscollective.org/desires>

*SMOL grant applications for Firefly are now open. *You can apply for a SMOL grant to help be part of making art at Firefly.
• Grants are $40 - $149, for small projects.
• Grants are available until June 20.
• Apply via this Google form. <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Df6kYkXFgBGH1Hbwny6rCuOExQ2aG9wMgqgfnc1Unr…>
*The Details: *Over the years, the Firefly Arts Collective (FAC) has been proud to provide grant support to Firefly artists to enable them to express and fulfill their varied creative visions. These grants are intended to support and promote radically-expressive, community-based, interactive and/or collaborative projects that help define and shape the creative core of the event.
Art is a central part of Firefly, and the event wouldn't be the same without the wonderful pieces that have been brought to Vermont over the years. Bringing art is a great way to add a piece of yourself to the event and contribute/participate in a meaningful way.
We are now accepting applications for our *final* grant category, Smol Grants!
These grants are available between $40 and $149, and are meant to help cover expenses associated with projects of a small (or “smol”) size or scope. We love smol projects! Small projects fill the woods with art and give an opportunity to people who don’t have the time or resources to commit to something bigger. They are particularly designed to encourage creation by new participants and participants who haven’t brought art to Firefly before, but everyone is welcome to apply!
These grants are evaluated on a rolling basis, from now until June 20th, aka two weeks before the event.
For more information, _see the info on the website <https://www.fireflyartscollective.org/participate/art-at-firefly/art-grants…>_ .
*_How to submit?_*
Smol grants, being smol, have a smol application process as well! _Just visit our google form_ <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Df6kYkXFgBGH1Hbwny6rCuOExQ2aG9wMgqgfnc1Unr…> .
