COMMUNITY HOOK PULL hosted by Whittney

Magik is a community experience. Ordeal magik even more so. As BDSM teaches, it is safer to confront a challenge with someone to guide, drive, and support the experience. This year, as a community experience, we are holding a group hook pull. Hook pulls are an ancient spiritual practice that has survived into the modern age. It is a powerful way to experience ritual body modification and the altered state of consciousness associated with intense spiritual experiences. Participants will be pierced with one or two hooks, then have the chance to play tug-o-war with their ritual partner surrounded by a community of others doing the same.  Hooks can be placed just about anywhere on the body. Our in-house suspension team will guide the process and provide support as needed. For those not ready to be hooked and who are interested in helping with the ritual, drummers are needed to help create the sonic container for this experience (we have drums that you can use). Please see Whittney, our suspension team lead, to register for this amazing community experience. There is a fee for this service to cover the cost of equipment and disposables used to create your experience. All participants get to keep their hooks after the dance. .

Sunday, May 29th, 10:30am-12:30pm, Upper Dungeon

DRUMMING IN THE DUNGEON hosted by Whittney

A primal beat connects us all.  The rhythm of our hearts beat as one when we dance and explore the sacred space of our kink and play.  Come to the dungeon and share in the Camp Crucible tradition of drumming in the dungeon.  Bring your drum, rattle, or favorite instrument, or use the community drums and rattles to help create the sonic container for the magik of the night.  Want to be inspired to play in a more connected and deeper way?  Bring your playmates to the dungeon to play, dance, and create together in the magik of our primal beat.

Friday, June 3rd, 9:00pm-11:00pm, Upper Dungeon

So yeah, you decided to jump right into the deep end of the kink pool by coming to Camp Crucible.

You are welcome to drop in for as many sessions as you want. Participants are welcome to follow along with the facilitator or practice their own yoga routine. Getting to practice together makes practice fun!

Welcome to the best free yard sale in the land and a fabulous way to recycle clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, etc. that you once loved but now need a new home. Conveniently located in Cabin 19 for accessibility.


1)  What can I bring for the S-n-S?

Gently used, still wearable clothing, accessories, shoes, handbags, jewelry and hats. 

2) Can I bring cosmetics?

As long as they are fresh and not “spoiled” (i.e. ready to be tossed) sure. We reserve the right to make that call, though.

3) Can I bring toys?


4) Do the clothes have to be scene wear?

Business casual, kinky wear, costumes, novelty tees or sleep pants, shoes, etc. are all welcome. All items must be CLEAN, GENTLY used, no holes, no stains, and no faded items. Anything unsuitable will be pulled from inventory.

5) Do I need to bring anything in order to shop?

You do not need to bring items to take items! All items are free. There are also no rules as far as “gender.” If you see a nice little item you like, take it! 

6) How does it work?

Bring your items & hang them up or put them out on the various shelves, tables & such provided. No one will hang your stuff up for you. If you want it to get gone, you must take care of that yourself. We will keep it tidy. If you leave it in the bag, it will STAY in the bag.

7) Can I help?

The Swap runs itself. There will be a chore to help keep it tidy throughout Camp.

Please try to bring hangers if you can.

8) Do I have to take my stuff back?

Any items left at the end of the swap are taken to Goodwill or some other such charity.

If you want any items back that were not taken it is your responsibility to pick them up before the Swap is closed & packed up.

9) Can I bring stuff for men?

This is not a women’s only thing!! Men are more than welcome to bring items. Guys have come shopping but we get very little in the way of men’s wear. So, yes we encourage men to participate as well.
