Camp

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.


Our Mission:

To exemplify and embody the 6 core concepts of our HEXethos:

Connect

Co-Create

Community

Care

Culture

Contribute




VALUES


Our values are closely aligned with the 10 Principles of Burning Man written by co-founder Larry Harvey. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception. We have represented our values here in the same fashion and intention.

RADICAL INCLUSION
We’re a growing tribe, a dynamic open system which recognizes that new energy fuels our momentum. We humbly and ecstatically invite others into our HEXtent and hearts, to play, share, grow, dance, and co-create with us.

GIFTING
We are a group of givers on and off the playa, fully aware that bestowal upon others is an infinitely rewarding experience, and that the value of gifting is undefinable and the terms unconditional.

DE-COMMODOTIZATION
We are committed to holding proper space for the culture of gifting through de-commodification. We actively protect this culture through the elimination of transactions, advertising, and self-promotion – that means no business cards (MOOP!). All offerings and gifts are given with love to the Playa, selflessly.

RADICAL SELF-RELIANCE
We are a tribe but we are individuals first. In recognition of this fact, we are committed and embrace the mantra of self care. It is important to be whole before you can help and be of service. We encourage and provide resources to maximize the individual strength of each one of our members.

COMMUNAL EFFORT
We honor the time and energy it takes to put together our camp and therefore we are committed to each other to help with the planning, building, striking of camp. We are also committed to the greater mission that is BRC and the leading edge cultural movement that is the BM community.

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY
The health and safety of our camp members and our guests is paramount. In fact, it's the third-most important thing. We are committed to creating a safe and fun space for all residents of BRC. We engage our neighbours and greater community to co-create a space designed for comfort and safe play and expression.

LEAVE NO TRACE
We fiercely uphold the “pack it in – pack it out’ mantra and we are committed to leaving our canvas, campground, playa home and wherever else we roam cleaner than how we found it. All of our members are committed to MOOP patrols in camp and when out on the playa.

PARTICIPATION
We believe participation is not a luxury in that our spirit calls us to it and our inner expansion demands it. We hold supportive and encouraging space for one another as we answer this call. Everyone is unique and has special qualities. We identify those talents and place our members in roles that allow them to shine and to flourish.

RADICAL SELF EXPRESSION
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts and enthusiasms of the individual as well as the exponential offerings that a collaborating group can create together.We encourage and honour the expression of the individual within our highly collaborative setting and take great care in walking this balance. We are a collection of unique eclectic artists from all over the world, an international camp from a vast array of backgrounds with an incredible scope of heart-centered creativity. One of our primary values is to fiercely hold space, through our offerings and presence, for our guests and the greater community to practice radical self expression in any way that is safe and respectful to others.

IMMEDIACY
We embrace the moment and the ongoing dissolution of hesitancy as a barrier to discovery, expansion and connection. We encourage everyone to be fully present and to say yes to everything that invites their spirit, and to push our own boundaries through new connections and new experiences. While we're creating amazing memories, we remind ourselves that reality only exists in the now, and that this value above all others can change the world.




THE FINE PRINT

  • DGS TICKET POLICY
  • CONFLICT RESOLUTION
  • SPONSORSHIP
  • STRIKE

All new members to camp must have a sponsor that is camping with us in the current year. Sponsorship allows us to hold people accountable. Since we're a camp based on contribution, the camp as a whole is impacted when members don't pull their weight. 

If you're new to camp and in need of a sponsor, we encourage you to engage with our community. Make friends, offer to help, create a fun idea and try and garner support for it. 

To sponsor someone who is a current applicant. Please use the sponsorship link below.

If you sponsor someone and they do not show up and honor their commitment, you will be prohibited from sponsoring someone the following year. To this point, please be mindful about who you sponsor. You should only sponsor people who you know well.
