Celebrating our second year on the playa, the Burning Scouts are dedicated to infusing the youth of Black Rock City with a love of chaos and hedonism. Earn DEMERIT BADGES in such disciplines as “Homosexuality,” “Lap Dancing” or “Unfocused Rage.” Join our deeply inebriated Scoutmasters on guided nature hikes through the wilds of Black Rock City. Or ask one of the lovely and foul-mouthed Burning Girl Scouts for a horribly charred cookie. Maybe after she’s done kicking your ass, she’ll even give you one. Scout HQ is located near the village of Gigsville — stop on by and learn how you too can BE IMPAIRED!

**HEY — think this is such a swell theme camp idea that you’re thinking of stealing it? We’re BEGGING YOU TO. Check out our website for information on how to set up a Burning Scout troop of your own at Burning Man ’01. It’s a great way to meet new friends and make them do embarassing things.**
