Internationals

With people from around the world interested in attending Burning Man, we find it exceedingly special when other countries choose to join us. There aren’t many better options for bonding with people from other cultures than the shared experience of Burning Man, the camp, and its many projects and gifting. We learn so much by hosting and we are all …

Dormatory Option

Dormatories We appreciate our distance members so much, we offer a special option to offset the burden of traveling so far to join us. We construct several dormatory tents that are partitioned with fabric into four rooms each. They are anchored in such a way to be stable in the high wind bursts that hit the desert. Floors are tarp …

Bikes

The Burning Man event has a huge bike problem: last year there were over 4,000 bikes abandoned at the end of the event. Apparently there are lot of people who buy cheap bikes on the way in and assume they are doing someone a favor by “donating” it to the event, or expecting to find a charitable group there who …

Mutant Vehicle

The Karma Karriage is a custom-built vehicle capable of taking ten riders on the playa. It lives next door at our sister maker camp, Dustopia. It had an engine problem last year, so we hauled it several hundred miles away for repairs and upgrades. I returns with some restructuring, major lighting effects and a sound system.

Visitors flop on the pillows at the base and enjoy gazing at the heavens through the outdoor …

Theme Camps and Burning Man

Burning Man hopes that as a future citizen, you will learn about and embrace the culture. The process of learning is known as acculturation, and its important to know certain things as you ponder joining a theme camp. In Burning Man’s early years, there were almost no rules. Absolute freedom was a wonderful idea that could have been preserved if …

Camp Necklaces

Each year, we make special pendants (on necklaces) for all our camp members. After 35 hours of work, this year’s design is finally done. These are going to be polished nickel with red enamel inlay on both sides. Now we’re negotiating with tool and die manufacturers on the the pendant production. While camp dues cover the manufacturing cost enough to …
