Mas Camp

Definition: a place where individuals design, construct, sew, decorate, create mas. Traditionally mas camps would be the nucleus of carnival. Masqueraders go there to view drawings and prototypes, choose the section of the band they’d like to play in, register and pay fees. The mas camp is where one goes to collect the costume and often the meeting/ assembly point for the band. Still today in Trinidad & Tobago there are mas camps where you can enter and see scores of people gluing, welding, sewing, cutting, glittering costumes and all other creative exercises.
