2016 Theme Camps

I Love Elephants

We love Elephants and share our passion full time in the default world and live our elephant fantasies on the Playa. Ride our life-like elephant, as we take your picture, or even video you for inclusion in our fun website film! Enjoy jungle beverages like coconut water or beer. Draw elephants, trumpet for elephants and more. Meet our conservation group’s director who is equally nuts for elephants. You’ll love elephants even more as he shares stories over beverages and snacks. Oh, and we’ve been told our misting system is best ever on the playa! The misting equipment design is one of a kind!

Hometown: Santa Rosa


Many of us come from cultures where physical touch and speaking openly is discouraged. Even in the swirling world of self-expression that is Burning Man, people can easily miss simple human contact. Our camp wants to see each individual spirit, to hear their stories and to offer moments of real connection. We plan to offer:
● 60 seconds or more of Intentional Gazing.
● Five Minutes or more of Focused Listening.
● Generous Hugs – just as long as each visitor wants.
Our camp members will offer these services Noon to 6 PM daily (or pretty much any time we’re in our big round public living room). We want to empower and encourage our campers and visitors to continually offer these same three tokens of human contact.
We are an international group of campers. A few of our campers plan to get the “self-Guided Art Tour” document (in English) from The ARTery and use that document to lead Art tours in their native language. Meeting place and times to be determined.
