DGS 2020

DGS Applications

Thank you to all of you who contributed love, work, and your own unique brand of magic to the HEX Collective in 2019. It was our best year yet and we’re excited to continue on in 2020!

This application is for those interested in serving in a committed and defined leadership capacity in 2020 (and hopefully beyond).

INTERESTED IN JOINING US IN 2020?

The Camper Application below is the place to start for both new and returning campers.

Depending how quickly camp fills up, we may have additional application windows. Camp is already more than half full for 2020 so if you want to dance in the dust Hexy style, be sure to get your apps in sooner than later. 🙂

Hex at burning man

We gather on the playa to connect, laugh, grow, dance, share and to give back to the citizens of BRC. We gather to expand as collective, and as a force for change, positivity, and love. We believe in exponential impact of empowerment, the momentum of meaningful movements, and the cathartic creative power of conscious community.

HEX Collective is not a "Plug & Play" Camp

This means that everybody contributes in a variety of ways, mostly love, being their awesome selves, and a badass amount of on-playa in-the-dust work. Dues are another way we contribute to make camp possible. They are essentially the camp’s operating expenses divided by the number of people in the camp, and typically run between $400-500 USD. Over the following weeks, we will be able to calculate the camp dues structure for 2020 and will post them ASAP.

Check out what dues pay for – and how to send payment – at the link below.

DGS Ticket Applications / Re-Commitment to Camp

DGS Applications

Thank you to all of you who contributed love, work, and your own unique brand of magic to the HEX Collective in 2019. It was our best year yet and we’re excited to continue on in 2020!

This application is for those interested in serving in a committed and defined leadership capacity in 2020 (and hopefully beyond).

Note: The DGS ticket sale is February 26. By applying for DGS tickets, you are able and willing to purchase a burning man ticket for yourself for $475 USD on February 26, in addition to paying $100 camp fee deposit. Tickets are sold in pairs. You will be matched up with your ticket buddy to coordinate your ticket purchase. We also ask each pair to purchase a vehicle pass, even if you’re not sure you will need it.

Sale Period: February 26, 2020 at 12pm (noon) – February 28, 2020 at 12pm (noon) PST

 Those who buy tickets in the Directed Group Sale may still participate in the FOMO Sale (previously “Pre-Sale”) but will be prevented from registering to buy in the Main Sale, STEP, and the OMG Sale.

 

How DGS Works

DGS tickets are specifically for the core build team and leaders of camp. They’re designated to our camp as a bundle by Burning Man Org to camps in good standing to ensure that enough core members can return to run their camp awesomely again.

Therefore, it’s critical DGS tickets go to tribe members who are willing to step up into a leadership role in a major way. 

All DGS applicants, including vets, will need to be very clear about what they intend and can reasonably contribute to camp in the upcoming year in order to receive a DGS ticket in 2020.

If you receive an opportunity to be a part of the DGS ticket sale, you are considered an integral part of the leadership team and as such HEXcollective has certain expectations of you that must be met.

  • You must pay a $100 deposit for your camp dues to secure your DGS access.
  • You are expected to serve as a part of leadership in addition to always helping out wherever needed in the typical spirit of camp.
  • You must allocate the hours needed, beginning immediately and throughout the burn, to ensure that your comitments and teams are radically successful.

Camp / Leadership Withdraw

If you decide not to camp with us after you have received your DGS ticket you MUST:

  • Notify council that you will not be attending with us immediately
  • Return your tickets and vehicle pass to camp immediately

Camp Withdraw
In the event of withdraw, any monies paid for a deposit and the cost of the tickets will be refunded upon transfer. The DGS tickets are specifically for the core build team and leaders of camp. If DGS tickets are used by anyone outside of our camp, our standing with BMOrg could be jeopardized.

Leadership Withdraw
If you’ve received your DGS ticket but are no longer able to serve camp in a committed leadership role for any reason (it’s okay – life happens!) just let us know as soon as possible so we can re-allocate.
