An interesting case is Disorient. This is not a do-nothing camp, but this year they had the idea of putting their light show and sound on an art car, marked with "DIS" and their own camp was quiet and just had an "ORIENT" sign on the esplanade.

create a GAME. minimal tech, maximal obsessive pondering (ie trying to create the rules). call your game, say, SPORK. actually, you can start _this_ year. just ask, "Do you want to play SPORK?" and have something to say when people say either, a) what's that? or b) sure, how do you play? enjoy!
