Tac-O-Cat

We are Camp Tac-O-Cat. We cook tacos for the masses and enjoy serving libations and great conversation. We offer shade, a misty breeze and we have a few gear-heads who like to solve problems. Our camp is made up of Burners with deep roots in playa culture and a few we have newly adopted. People will likely be pulled in by heckling when they pass by, and some of the best connections have come from luring our new friends in from the street. We enjoy cracking people out of their comfort zone and immersing them in dusty happiness.

At sunset Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will be offering tacos. Our tacos are playa-famous and have a special grilled tortilla. We have vegetarian options as well.

Tantra Mantra

Tantra Mantra is a camp dedicated to the transformation and transcendence of the human condition. We integrate ancient esoteric teachings of tantra with modern self-development techniques to create a unique environment for experiences that prepare the ground for evolution. To envision and prepare the world of tomorrow we need to rewire our nervous systems and free ourselves from the old paradigm. Tantra is an accelerator of evolution. The collective ambition towards freedom present during Burning Man is unique. It erases differences between individuals and supports the Tantric effort of transcending all false dualities. From regular morning energetic practices to one-of-a-kind ceremonies and ritual … Expect the unexpected.

The Shrimp Ranch

Howdy! Welcome to the Shrimp Ranch, where the Wild West meets the salty sea. We’re a camp of seasoned burners looking to create a unique experience for the community in the only way we know how: through food, music and quirky performance art.

Our ragtag crew will transport you to an imagined past, where crustaceans roamed the frontier. From shrimp snacks and cold drinks to the INFAMOUS SEAHORSE RODEO to our raucous music, on and off camp, get ready to live your nautical fantasy and somehow leave you weirdly warmer than you came.

The Tiniest Camp

The Tiniest Camp is a place where people can connect and have meaningful conversations. We offer an intimate and cozy environment.
You won’t find any grandiose installations or flashy decorations. Instead, you’ll find a humble gathering of burners who are there to share stories, ideas, and experiences. The focus is on creating a space that allows for genuine interactions and deep conversations.
It is a testament to the idea that bigger isn’t always better. We place a strong emphasis on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, and create a space where everyone feels comfortable and valued, regardless of their background or beliefs.
At the Tiniest Camp, you can disconnect from the distractions of modern life and truly engage with the people around you. It’s a beautiful thing to witness.
