Earth Skills Revival Community Guidelines

At Earth Skills Revival, we are deeply committed to reviving the knowledge and practices of both our ancestors and contemporaries. We believe in teaching and learning through a lens of respect for the earth, fostering tangible skills, and creating resilience in our communities. Our goal is to thrive as a diverse community, empowered to care for ourselves, each other, and the land we hold sacred.


Vehicle Policy
Unless you have expressly purchased a car camping pass, or an in-camp car pass for accessibility needs, please return your automobile to Main Parking immediately after off-loading your camping equipment.  The Camp is for People, the Main Parking Area is for Cars. We are positively anti-automobile. Please do not drive your car into the wooded areas of camp and do observe the “No Vehicles” signs; just pull your vehicle completely off the road and carry your gear the last few feet to your campsite. Please do not ever leave your vehicle in any intersections or in any of the entrances to the High Meadow or the Kitchen. Not even for a minute.

Substance Policy
We do not want to police anyone’s behaviors. Public intoxication and contraband will not be tolerated. Controlled substances and contraband are as illegal at Four Quarters as anywhere else. The legal drinking age in PA is 21, and that is strictly enforced. Please, no public drinking of alcohol in original containers. The venue sells Mead that is made on site, but put that drink in a cup! We promote a culture of moderation, respecting the gathering's family friendly orientation and our care for the community at large.

Pet Policy

We welcome registered service animals that are specifically trained to aid a person with a disability. To ensure the safety and comfort of all participants, we kindly ask that only service animals that are legally recognized and have completed the necessary registration processes accompany their owners. To respect the needs and well-being of all attendees, pets or emotional support animals not registered as service animals will not be permitted on the premises

Campfire Policy
Please do not move rocks to line a fire ring or create an open fire pit. Fire rings are available for pickup near the Coffee Dragons. Please do not burn paper, plastic, or foil in fire rings; it leaves a poisonous residue that kills the soil. Please never, ever leave your fire, burning lanterns, heaters, or stoves unattended.

About Your Campsite

Camp as lightly as possible upon the Land. Leaves and other loose materials should be left in place; they are natural mulch, which helps to prevent soil compaction or erosion. Do not dig drainage ditches anywhere or line pathways with tree limbs or rocks. For everyone’s safety, ensure that tent stakes are at least six feet away from the road or path. Please do not camp in the marked workshop, sacred sites, or ceremony areas, and observe all parking signs.Please do not decorate your site with rocks; one well-built altar is plenty! Rocks are a safety hazard and ruin Church grounds equipment.


Clothing Policy
We aim to create a comfortable and respectful environment for all participants. To balance personal freedom with communal respect, we have established the following guidelines regarding attire and nudity:

Dress as you would for a day at the beach, with skinny-dipping in the Creek. Please dress appropriately for meals in the Dining Pavilion. 


Trash Policy

Four Quarters is Green. We do not provide trash service; you must pack out everything you bring in. We distribute trash bags for the asking. Leave them at Registration on your way home. Littering is profound disrespect of the land and will be a cause for expulsion. Field strip your cigarettes and put the butts in your pockets.


About Drum Circle

A safe, sacred space to ride the spirit of the Drum. Please be aware that at Four Quarters Sponsored Events, Drum Circle is cleaned and prepared each evening as an act of service, helping to maintain the Drum Circle as a place of mystery, magic and respect. Alcohol and tobacco are not permitted on the sanded areas; glass of any kind is prohibited. If you like to sit while drumming, bring a chair; and please do not drag the wooden benches towards the fire. Jumping the fire is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate expulsion from the campground.

About Swimming

Feel free to swim in the Hemlock & Stoneledge Swimming Holes, but remember that it is wild, natural and dangerous. NO PROVISIONS FOR YOUR SAFETY HAVE BEEN TAKEN. YOU SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK, and NEVER, NEVER jump into the water. To do so is cause for expulsion. And no soap of any kind may be used in the creek. The beavers hate it.
