With dishes prepared by chefs on beautifully set tables between the trees; with yoga lessons, hot tubs and relaxing massages; with music from all corners of the world – ranging from intimate acoustic sounds to thrilling deejay sets; with vaudeville theatre, surprise acts and spectacular shows. Unique workshops, masterclasses and inspiring debates are also on the menu – all set in serene surroundings in the midst of lakeside nature, where every last detail is taken care of and space, attentiveness, community and comfort are key.

Our program is based on six themes: ‘Live & Electronic’, ‘Drinks & Dining’, ‘Talks & Stories’, ‘Shows & Spectacles’, ‘Arts & Crafts’ and ‘Wellness & Wellbeing’.

Music at Camp Moonrise covers all tastes, colors and corners of the world. Let us take you on a musical journey, from jazz, blues and afrobeat through to classical orchestras and electronic beats. Gilles Peterson, Nightmares on Wax, Bombino, My Baby, Nubiyan Twist and Kenny Dope (Masters at Work) have already been confirmed, among others.

‘Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are’, said the French philosopher Brillat Savarin. Food plays a central part at Camp Moonrise and we have invited the most innovative and creative caterers to satisfy your every culinary need. Top chef Joris Bijdendijk (Rijks @ Rijksmuseum) will host a very special pop-up restaurant with themed dinners and there’s a wide variety of street food and drinks, including a cocktail bar and absinth bar, to name but a few. You can also take part in various workshops, or join talks and debates with food scientists and other culinary frontrunners.
‘Talks & Stories’ is all about one of the oldest forms of communication. Everyone loves stories – ancient or contemporary. We love to inspire you with performances, tales and talks on subjects ranging from science, self-knowledge, the climate, love and mindfulness. You can drift into dreams listening to fairytales, get new insights on Ayahuasca or take part in a fascinating discussion about the future of food. We also have our own mini-library on site!

Prepare to be dazzled! Be it dance, performance art, comedy, light sculptures or expositions, our ‘Shows & Spectacles’ program is moving, mind-blowing and presented in all the colors of the rainbow. Take part in an interactive performance, a skippy ball race or a sock wrestling competition. Or wrestle with a skippy ball – whatever takes your fancy. The absolute highlight of our weekender is the Moonrise Spectacle on Saturday night, a grand show which will leave the whole festival breathless.
Release your inner craftsman or –woman and discover hidden talents through our various workshops. How about the sturdy art of wood chopping? Or organizing a lightsaber fight with your freshly made Star Wars origami and Kalligraffiti-ing your own logo? Or will you finally master the art of serigraphy? If you prefer to embellish yourself, you can do so at our Bazar, which hosts clothing stalls with quality vintage and crazy costumes, a hairdresser and even a make-up artist, among other things, services and products.
In our Spa Blue, you can relax fully, with cold water baths, a sauna, herbal hot tubs and massages. The nearby Sangha Garden is a very special place. Those of you who wish to experience your own peaceful essence will be met with softness and attention, in a tranquil and earthy décor. Get out of your head and into your heart with yoga, reiki, meditation or ecstatic dancing. Join our various group activities or book an individual session in a private tent. Here, you can also listen to a serene mini-concert or a spiritual talk.

Camping out at Camp Moonrise is so much more than just a place to sleep. When it comes to camping, we have a variety of sites and accommodations for you to choose from. Camp Ivanhoe is our general camping, where you can set up your own tent, but you can also book one of our already set-up tents at Camp Wayohi. You can also stay at Camp Chipanow, a quiet family campsite, and if you’d like to come with a camper or caravan, you can reserve a spot at Camp Cherokee. If you want to take it up a notch or two, you can also book one of our deluxe accommodations at Camp Moonlake, with made-up beds, Wi-Fi, electricity and a private terrace. Select and book your preferred accommodation directly from the website. Any questions? Please do not hesitate to e-mail us at reception@campmoonrise.nl.

There is a place where every kind of bird belongs – from songbirds to rare birds to birds of paradise. That place is Camp Moonrise, a world in which we celebrate life and all the beautiful things it has to offer. We do this together, in harmony with each other and with nature. Moonrisers have an open heart and an open mind and leave their egos at home. They live in the present and create magical moments together. Nobody is left behind, everyone belongs. This sense of community also means a love for life and all it entails. This is manifest in a respect for nature, of which we are so dependent. Therefore, Moonrisers pick up their trash and treat their surroundings with respect. Moonrisers also have respect for each other, acknowledge each other and are curious of each other’s stories.

Dear Moonrisers, please enter our domain: our world is in your hands. Get carried away by a moonlight shadow, rejoice, relax, engage, go wild, create, discuss, inspire or be inspired. Camp Moonrise is yours and the possibilities are endless.
