 The 3-day Old School Survival Boot Camp event passes will not be sold at the door. Tickets must be purchased online prior to the event date.

A general admission ticket is all that is required to spend 3 days at the Old School Survival Boot Camp event.

Old School Survival Boot Camp Handicap Accessibility

This is an outdoor event where uneven terrain and off pavement conditions should be expected to be encountered. Rain before or during the event may make some areas difficult or impossible to traverse by wheelchair. 

The road through the main event venue is a combination of gravel and dirt that is usually passable by a wheelchair, but weather conditions could alter passable conditions. All barns, buildings, and permanent restrooms are handicap accessible.

There are roughly 20 handicap parking spots in the heart of the main event venue. These will be used daily on a first come first serve basis. If an attendee alerts event staff at the front gate that all handicap accessible parking spaces are taken, a drop off to the main event building or as near as possible to an event area will be permitted.
