2019 Theme Camps
BRC Raccoons invite you to make Burning Man Green again and forever!Hometown: Vilnius, Lithuania
Some Ripples are soft and wide, while others are pointed and hard enough to cut through steel and stone. Come tell us about your Ripples big and small, and while you’re here, play with our interactive fire and sound art, relax in our cozy tea lounge, and enjoy our Tiny Stage for Big Acts. We’ll be hosting live music, breathwork and yoga classes, comedy shows, and even a fire contact workshop. Check Playa Events for more info.
Do you have a talent to share? Show us your Ripples! Stop by and talk to our camp about performing on our stage. We welcome all kinds of expression!

Stop in and say hello. Bring us you public service announcements to play on the air. We are here to help make your project a success.
Raditude (Formerly Fer Sherbert)
The goal of Camp Raditude and its members, is to nurture and be stewards of the ritual creative spirit at Burning Man; mostly through their bellies, aiming to reach their hearts. Having seen nearly a decade of all the intricately magical, and incomprehensible large-scale art installations out on the playa, we know that it takes more than just the creator’s imagination to make this art a success. No matter how many robots are brought to the playa each year, the key is that it takes a community; a multitude of specified hostesses, task masters, wing nuts, and daring humans to take a leap and come together in creative unity.Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Hometown: Las Vegas
RaFreaki is an oasis used to escape the scorching heat of the open playa. Is it a mirage? No, the shade is real. The booming you hear is from our finely tuned PK sound system and not from your lack of hydration. Come by to enjoy a cool beverage in the shade whilst being serenaded by the low frequencies of our beautiful PKs.Contact: email@example.com Hometown: Lake Tahoe
A calming, relaxing, refreshing Oasis, where Burners of every sexual proclivity can enjoy a cold drink, a snack, and a deep conversation stoked by intrusive (yet illuminating!) personal question cards. Come every afternoon for our daily events, come every morning for stretching and iced coffee!

Raised by Wolves
A wolf pack is primarily composed of brothers and sisters. We’re not related—or wolves—but we do yell at the moon a lot. Raised by Wolves is a creative community that forms in BRC to adventure, count blessings, and howl with familiar spirits. We share our spaces with everyone who responds to the call of the wild. Our parties have the most bops, our heckles the most puns, and our dome the most, uh, something.
Join us for our Dances with Wolves parties, pairing non-electronic music and dancing, with a cocktail and projecting the 181-minute movie (of the same name) inside our dome.
And every day our amazingly diverse workshop series features sessions like, intro to bike riding, Thai massage, live music and chai tea, acupuncture, and more.
