Capture the flag (CTF)

Capture the Flag (CTF) is a computer security competition. CTF contests are usually designed to serve as an educational exercise to give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world. Reverse-engineering, network sniffing, protocol analysis, system administration, programming, and cryptanalysis are all skills which might come in handy.

Hack the Fri3d badge

Every proper hacker camp has a badge, so does Fri3d Camp! Explore how to hack this badge together with Tom.

Sewing workshop

In the workshop you'll be making your own teddy bear. This one to be precise. For this workshop we kindly ask € 15 for the material. All material including sewing machines will be provided. Of course you get to keep the teddy bear!

Saturday 13:30 ~ 18:30

LEGO room

Who doesn't like LEGO? There will be a room dedicated to LEGO, blocks and trains included. You can build whatever you want alone or together with others. To prevent mixing LEGO collections: don't take any LEGO pieces in or out the room, there will be plenty of bricks around!

Retro games

There will be some old school consoles and emulators to play with.

Want to build your own arcade? We'll give you some pointers!

Dance Dance Revolution

Players stand on a "dance platform" and hit colored arrows laid out in a cross with their feet to musical and visual cues. Alone or with two, it is so much fun and a nice break!

LAN-party

Friday - Sunday. Bring your own pc. Don't forget to update your game(s) and/or Steam library before you come! If you don't have any games we'll point you to some open source games :)

make musical instruments for the Superficial Symphony Orchestra

Tom is looking for people to make musical instruments together from powertools, electronics, other stuff so they can all play the same song together, electronically. A fun project!

Movie time

Let's watch some short movies, the darkest corners of youtube of something else random. If we're lucky we can even do this in the movie theater next door!

Keep talking and nobody explodes game

One player (the Defuser), has to defuse a bomb. The other player ( the Expert), has the bomb defusal manual. Since they cannot see what the other can see, they have to rely on each other to bring this mission to a good end. a hilarious game to watch and to play!

Laser tag

Since there are multiple large empty buildings and a garden, it would be a shame not to play laser tag! We'll be renting some equipment which you can borrow for free. Donations welcome but not mandatory.

Folk ball:

Everyone is welcome Sunday around 14h for a folk ball. Don't know the dances? We will explain them to you :) You don't need a dance partner, everyone dances with each other :D Musicians also welcome for a live jam session!

Sunday 14:00

Lumos fairy jars

I will bring some jars with lid, glow sticks and lots of glitter! Let’s lighten up the place when the sun sets with some mystical fairy lights.

Starts before sunset, every day

Hack-a-Van

An open & hands-on brainstorm for everyone who wants to transform his/her van or another tiny space into a (temporar) living/working/sleeping/... place. Lots of inspirations, ideas, designs, manuals, tools, vans and materials are welcome! Thomas can bring material and tools to make models and small prototypes if you're interested. Do you have a van, but no ideas? Do you have lots of ideas, but not a van (yet)? Are you interested? Join us on Sunday for the brainstorm and let us know what you will be bringing with you or what you need.

Sunday
