Let Gravity do the work. Like love, gravity is one of the many unseen forces of the universe. It binds together our solar systems, keeps us firmly grounded, and rolls off the tongue like an avalanche.

With this in mind, Gravity Camp is the force that attracts and propels participants forward on the playa.

Our camp’s primary activities take place during the setting of the sun, when its gravity propels the earth through orbit and dazzles us with its majestic colorscapes. It is during this time, that we celebrate the success of a sun-filled day, and boldly continue our trajectory into the darkness of the night.

On the outskirts of the city, with no obstruction in sight, Gravity is the ideal location to celebrate the sun and wind-down before an evening of exploration.
