This is NOT a list of officially accepted or placed theme camps, it’s a preview of what you’ll find when you get to Black Rock City.

This is the list of Theme Camps who submitted a Placed Camp Questionnaire requesting placement in Black Rock City’s reserved sections for this year and want to be listed publicly.

Placement is announced in Early July. These are the camps Placement is reviewing. To find out what camps did receive placement look through the Playa Info Directory in Center Camp.

To find camps not included on the BRC Map or to find camps that chose not to be listed, you’ll just have to get lucky.

If you’re at the event, and you (or your friends) get the sudden urge to volunteer on the spot, visit the V-Spot. They’ll hook you up with available volunteer opportunities.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee Experience

Vietnamese Iced Coffee Experience is an all inclusive Burning Man Theme Camp. We encourage diversity, participation, and acceptance and welcome new members from all locales and walk of life. Our camp commitments are minimal, as such we do expect members to be radically self sufficient when it comes to personal needs although we’re more than happy to help out with pre-event planning and support in extreme situations. Participating in our afternoon coffee service is more reward than obligation and we also offer several community directed activities for those that wish to participate. We have camp events during the week to ensure everyone feels included. We’d be happy to welcome you to join our group. Contact us for more information!
