Christmas Camp

Postby havoc » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:30 pm

I am considering it.

Lights, trees, presents, (slightly evil) Santa, slutty elves, reindeer, Christmas movies, caroling, candy canes, hot chocolate, egg nog...maybe an elementary-school-esque Christmas pageant?

Still fleshing it all out, but yeah...the idea is there...

And add a north pole :)

Since you have decided to include slutty elves, a pole in the north makes sense :)

Great idea though! I love it...

I would be really into this! Christmas is my absolute favorite and gathering up decorations for it would be awesome! What a fun idea :lol:

Wasn't Christmas Camp the original, first Burning Man theme camp?

I've had the same idea and would LOVE to participate in a Christmas camp! I don't see how it could be anything other than awesome.

One of the conditions that this MV be registered, was that they do something bigger with Santa's junk. Did they?

This sounds great! Christmas in August sort of thing.
If it comes to fruition, I have an ass load of Christmas decorations and would be happy to donate some to the camp.

Now the quest for a minimal MOOP Xmas tree, or a plan to deal with the little green bits of plastic begins!

O man, maybe rather than a Christmas camp, its an XMas or XXXMas camp playing with the idea of the slutty elves.

Mmmmm, Christmas is so very flammable too!

I'll bring my Santa suit; maybe some wrapped gifts for the BIG man burn and maybe we can sacrifice my Reincorn. He's almost ready for a burning good time. :twisted:

My elves just ran off....I think they're confused.

Edit: typo
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!
