Thoink about what you can provide to a camp, what are you good at, what are you interested in and why you are going to BM. Then, tak a look here https://playaevents.burningman.org/2019 ... events/01/ to get an idea of what camps are doing and what you can get excited about. Email them or contact on Face Book. Tell them what you can do for them and for Burning Man and why you want to join their camp. Who knows, you might get lucky :)

It is really really disappointing and very sad. Burning man principles include radical inclusion. I emailed and messaged so many and have been trying to get in any of the theme camps but no one even replied. No one even cared to reply a word. It seems like everyone is decided long time ago and no one is willing to make any accommodation or changes to include any new any Virgin burner.

An accommodation means they should change to accomodate you. Look at what you can give to the camp and the Burn not what the camp can give to you. Maybe YOU should make the accomodation?

It's a little late but check locally for Burner gatherings and go. Meet people and make a connection.
