Tents and Athletes Village

Crew tents sold out!

Thank you for your excitement and your patience with tent sales this year.

Crew Tent Deadlines

All tents must be ordered by June 10 and paid in full by the crew registration closing date.

Crew Tent Rental Fees

Full Tent Half Tent
Lake side $650 $325
Regular $550 $275

Please note: Tents (especially lake side) are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. We try very hard to not oversell tents, but if we make a mistake, we reserve the right to correct tent allocation and fees. We understand that crew tents are in high demand, and we fit in as many crew tents into the park as is safe, but we cannot guarantee every crew gets a tent.

Tents are 20′ x 20′ squares, and have walls attached on three sides.

Crew Tent Decorations and Etiquette

Awesome crew tent decorations contribute to your crew’s success in the Fun Awards, so get creative! See the Crew Competitions page for details on the Fun Awards.

Everything you bring, especially all decorations, garbage, recycling, and personal belongings must be removed at the end of the festival, or your crew will be charged a cleanup fee. The tent should be left as clean or cleaner than it was when it was set up.

Approved Methods for Attaching Decorations to Tents

  • Zip ties
  • String
  • Rope
  • Painters’ tape (also known as Frog tape)

Do not use any of the following:

  • Any tape / glue / adhesives (except painters’ tape), especially duct tape (also known as Duck tape), or clear packing tape – It takes forever to clean off, and no one likes doing it. Our volunteers work hard enough as is.
  • Metal wire – It accelerates wear and tear on the tents.
  • Poking holes in the walls or roof – Seriously. It has happened.
  • Any paint / ink / markers – It’s impossible to clean.

Crews are responsible for any charges resulting from damages to their tents.

Walls are mounted for your safety – Please DO NOT UNDO OR ALTER walls, straps, or any other part of the tents as it is a very serious safety hazard, especially when the Lethbridge wind picks up!
