The first CrisisCamp was held in June of 2009 in Washington D.C. The camp was a place where people from all different industries can come together and discuss ways to deal with crises like natural disasters. After the earthquake and Haiti, CrisisCamp got together to try and figure out the best ways to help those in need.
Crisis Camp is the name for when technologically-minded people, such as computer programmers, gather to volunteer their skills in disaster relief. These gatherings can take place anywhere.

Crisis camps are a gathering of IT professionals, software developers, computer programmers – people in the technology and telecommunications industries – to help with aid for those affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods or earthquakes. The types of things they work on are providing access to social network to aid in locating missing family members or friends, handling inventories of needed items, creating maps of the areas that are affected. The idea for them are based on the BarCamp conferences.
Crisis Camp is a global network that brings together people and communities who innovate crisis response and global development through technology tools, expertise and problem solving. Crisis Commons is derived from Crisis Camp and is a concept being used to define how a commons-based approach can provide sustainability for the Crisis Camp community.
