Burning Man is a (Cooltown)
First time visiting Burning Man? This camp is perfect for you. Functioning as a museum of sorts, this camp can serve as your guide to everything you need to know about Burning Man. Here’s their mission:
“Our goal is to acculturate new burners and rejuvenate the old salty veteran. Discover your own path, or you can join us each afternoon as we hit the streets of Burning Man in a mobile misted shade structure and check out what makes Burning Man such a “Cooltown”.”
Without question, whether you’re a first timer, or a veteran, there’s plenty Cooltown can teach you!
Not too much is said about Camp H’Aloha, except it’s promised to be a Playanesian’s paradise. Definitely will be a camp with a few fun surprises!
You can guess what this camp is all about! Cat lovers rejoice! Here you can find festival goers decked out in “cat gear”, as well as some comfy hammocks to get some R&R!
…and then there’s only love
Most of the debauchery at Burning Man can be found in the famous air-conditioned Orgy Dome, the iconic hub for passionate, easy going couples. This camp is all about spreading love and happiness, spiritually and of course physically. This is a place to relax and meet some friendly people. It is important to remember that you must come with an open mind, everyone is welcome regardless of gender or sexual orientation. It is a peaceful place!
This is the ultimate lounge space for partiers. There are several dome spaces offering services such as yoga, massages, braiding, and the unique Makateeb experience. Enjoy the night under the stars with some tea and relaxing vibes from the crew – artists from all over the world gather here to share their craft!
Via Burning Man website:
“We started out as 17 fresh-faced Burner-virgins, and one dusty vet – all with a shared philosophy: that we treat our friends as family, and that we’re always open to new friends. And oh my, has our family has grown! So come by for a rip down the portal, we’ll pour you a cocktail in the jungle, and let’s get acquainted.”
1st Bank of BRC
This camp provides a super unique service! You deposit a “gift”, and come back later and receive one from another festival-goer. Definitely something to check out every year, guaranteed to create some memories.
(Look for the 5 psychedelic Olympic rings each representing a special core value!
This camp is aligned with the 10 principles of Burning Man. The theme of this camp is self awareness. Every night, you can expect to find music by Daring Greatly – a 5 piece group with major influences drawn from 60’s and 70’s classic rock.
A great choice if you’d like a brief respite from electronic music!
