Outdoor Kitchen

Do you like to feed people? Good food is yummy for our tummy… and we all love the tasty treats different burners have served us over the years. 

Want to feed everyone with panache and ease? There is a wonderful outdoor kitchen with a huge propane griddle, which comes hooked up to propane, lots of counter space, a sink with running water (luxury), and a beautiful tree to provide shade.

Signup closes October 16th. Keep your eye on the website for signup information, which is on the way.

The Magic Playground


Get ready to get your kink on!

The folks behind the Magic Touch who you know and love are bringing an exciting new camp to the event… and we need your help to make our sexy (and oh so kinky) dreams for our community come true at AfterBurn 2022 (and beyond)! 

Introducing our new affiliated theme camp: The Magic Playground!

The Magic Playground will be a tented, 18+ sex-positive play space with a kinky twist! We’re talking about an after-hours private lounge with amenities, including multiple spanking and torture benches, a St. Andrews Cross, bondage cages, a sex swing and suspension station, plenty of soft horizontal spaces, and a lounge area for the voyeurs and conversationalists. For those who wish to experience platonic intimacy, we will also offer cuddle puddles to soothe your souls with the magic of consensual group embrace! 

If this tweaks your nipples, please let us know! Please reach out to camp leads Petra & Chris at for more information on needed donations and volunteers.

Thanks for reading… and for making art, supporting art, and being a part of our community! Feel free to send me any updates.

How ’bout that?
