One person’s positive sound experience can be someone’s negative. Over a number of years, working with community, we have developed a sound policy that helps mitigate any conflicts and ensures a positive experience for everyone.

The following points summarize the sound policy

  • Amplified sound is not permitted between 6am and 12 pm daily.
  • A maximum power amplification of 200 watts (a boom box, not a PA) is permitted throughout the venue with the following exceptions:
    • Within designated sound camps during permitted hours.
    • During a registered theme camp event with a valid PA permit to operate a PA ONLY during the event. Theme camps may request a PA permit when registering an event.
  • Neighbors should talk to one another if sound becomes problem and try to resolve the issue through direct communication.
  • If you are unable to resolve issues through direct communication, please bring your complaint to a BITF Ranger at the Ranger Station (near medical). Concerns about excessive sound can result in:
    • volume check and mediation between camps,
    • volume check and a final warning on complaints,
    • the disabling of equipment.
  • A sound marshall will be monitoring the sound levels throughout the event.

As a community, we need to work together to keep sound at desirable levels. This means that everyone involved is personally responsible for how they affect everyone else’s experience. A community effort is need to pull this off.
