Welcome Home

image1Camp Traction was born in the summer of 2006. A new concept was unveiled at High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy California offering a clean and Sober Camping opportunity to those who so desire. A small group of sober friends worked with the promoters to secure a designated area where we could set up a sober camping area. We flew a banner where those clean and sober fans who wanted to could camp together could do so, within the festival. For me the dilemma has always been…”Great, there is a table at the show and meetings during set break, but when the show is over at a weekend festival…What now?”

Camp Traction was conceived as a means of dealing with this very dilemma! Camp Traction was setup without any knowledge of how many people would participate. We had an idea, a couple people, and a big book. We set up meetings twice a day at 12 and 12. We had limited advertising, and even less money. We worked with the Wharfrats once we got in to help spread the word. By the end of the weekend, we had received 38 dollars in donations, made 27 new friends, held 8 meetings, and realized a dream.

It was a terrific experience, and we couldn’t wait to do it again. The promoters offered their love, and we even had locals from the very small town of Quincy come to the meetings we sponsored, saying they’d wished we would not leave. There is an incredibly great potential for Camp Traction, with the right amount of participation and involvement, and just the right amount of love.

What We Do

phasesCamp Traction consists of music fans who choose to experience festivals and shows without the use of drugs or alcohol. Our primary purpose is to provide a safe environment for clean & sober music fans. We are not affiliated with AA, NA, this festival or any other organized recovery group. We are simply a group of people who share the common bond of enjoying musical events in a clean & sober state. We take no position on drug and or alcohol use and leave those decisions to the individual.

We offer support, strength and hope to those who seek what we share.
