At Camp D^5 we’re having a bounty of interactive entertainment and activities catering to the young, young at heart, hippies excluded (sorry).

We would enjoy a couple more experienced burners who are willing to be interactive and help out and in return you can reside in our fun interactive camp at G & 4:15. If interested you can reply here or send me a PM.

Is this a sex camp? I can't tell.

No, it's definitely not a sex camp. While sex may occur at some point during said event in said camp, we are just your typical run of the mill camp.

Our main interactivity events are:
  • Gifting hot dogs from 5pm to dusk (daily, until the dogs are gone)
  • Obstacle course, where guests traverse obstacles (while seated on a hoppity ball) and race against the clock for the best times
  • International DJ performing at the Theater a sunset set on Monday and a sunrise set on Saturday
  • Gifting of freezerpops as freezer space becomes available, once the hot dogs are gone
Beyond that we're just a group of burners ranging in age from 23 to 50+ originating from the PNW.

Your camp sounds great. Are you placed? If so, where? Did you get your health dept license? Don't forget your fire extinguisher. I'd love to find you guys and have an otter pop.

Hey Ratty! Yes, we are placed. We are on G and 4:15. I'm not sure if we'll be on the corner of 4:15, but we do know that we have G frontage.

Thanks for the tips. Yep we have our "approved" food permit, but still need to pickup the hard copy once we touch down in the dust. We've got a couple fire extinguishers and plenty of soap and water, food thermometers, etc., etc.

I'd love to see you again. I think that we met in 2014 when I was camping with GreyCoyote, Sunbeam, Elliot and FigJam, UnJohn and maybe you were also at the ePlaya M&G that year.

Where will you be this year?

Yes! Our little Tiger Man camp is placed at 4:15 and F. If you come in early I'll see your camp from my lounge chair. OK. Now I've added your address to my little book. Get back to work.

Look at your placement letter. Is it 4:15 and G or G and 4:15. That gives you a clue as to which way you are facing.

Yep, I was clued in by the G (first) and 4:15 in the placement letter, definitely on G based on the placement letter instructions. I would have thought mid-block, but with 4:15 having an avenue on G there is a chance it could be on that corner as well.

We are rolling in Thursday. If I can get all the cats herded up then I would like to arrive NLT sunrise Thursday 8/23

Oh ok. "Puppy play" means a very different thing in gay culture that's why I asked.

I have been to 14 burning man(s) This year I will try burning man with a camp.
I can show up early and help build the camp and I can help cook Hot Dogs .
I am from Reno just 134 miles away.
Is there a covered area here I set up a bed roll? Is there access to a shower?

Hey Thomas, welcome to the forums. Glad to see you join eplaya after 14 burns. Thanks for the offer, but we actually had a couple replace our AWOL Canadian friends, What prompted you after 14 burns to join eplaya and reply to our post? The Reno camps are pretty abundant you may want to check out there space and availability. Good luck with a camp this year.

Thanks for educating me on that, I didn't know my tongue and cheek comment had other meanings and I don't want to leave the wrong impression about our camps interactivity.

Yeah, puppy play is a fairly specific 'thing' in the kink world. Probably not your bag.

Okay so I used the power of the vast inter-webs and in very general terms you could say we are a puppy play camp in the most innocuous of ways.

There was no intent behind the dog theme, other than since we were handing out a couple thousand hot dogs for the week, why not throw a slew of dog references into the camp theme. Dog Pound, Kennel Club, Dog Park and originally the obstacle course was going to involve a dog and their master.

If gaminwench wants to be my master then I'm all for a little puppy play - slightly housebroken as well.

I'll bring a collar and leash. 8)

Don't be surprised if you get some kinky folks looking to *really* pup out in your space!

Yah 1 year I brought virgins with me and in the guide there was a gay puppy play camp and this girl was like omg they bring puppies let's go play with them! And I was like uhhhhh no you won't see any canines there. I showed her a couple Google image search pics and then she had even more questions lol.

I forgot to mention we just booked DJ Dolbytall for a sunset set on 8/27 Monday night (7:30-9:30pm) and a sunrise set on 9/1 Saturday (5:30-7:30am).

Great EDM/Trance music, you'll find him on mixcloud and soundcloud

What can I say? I really like Hot Dogs! I will undoubtedly find one of the local burner camps to contribute to. Good Luck let me know if you decide you do need help. Have a Great Burn!

Good point. A better response would have been "As the burning orb transitions above the western hills stop by for a dusty dog before embarking on dirty thrills"
