Theme Camps

It’s often said that theme camps do acculturation to our community better than anyone. Whether it’s taking on new people or making sure that your peeps are volunteering, it’s what makes a burn different than any other type of experience. It’s expected that a theme camp isn’t just a place for YOUR campers, but a place that has a gift to share with the larger community. That can be a participatory activity, performance art, or anything else you can think of.

While we encourage all participants to come together and have a communal experience, actual placement will be determined by your application and what you’re offering. Bringing something amazing? You may find yourself in the middle of the action. If you camp’s gift to the community is a bunch of blow-up chairs and a some weird music, you might find yourself a bit further away from the action.

For the first time we have some additional structures that are available for theme camps to adopt. These range from cabins to larger buildings, from small stages among the trees to different areas available to decorate. If you’d like to know more about these opportunities, stay tuned, and sign up for BOB so you’ll hear these details as soon as they are released.

Theme camp registration is now closed. We still have plenty of space in Open Camping, and you are welcome to host activities in the Indaba, our center camp and art gallery. Use this form to submit your events and activities to The Bucket List.
