Seeking camp leads to find the perfect fit

Postby Madsknuts » Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:54 pm

Hello beautiful people!

My name is Madison (from Berkeley) and I will be coming to my first burn with my friend Anna (from Marin). We have been going to burner events for years but finally got tix and can afford it this year being in our mid 20s! As first-timers, we are looking for a local SF camp that we can join during the burn, but also extend our community in the bay during the rest of the year (or lives?) - but definitely not limited to SF local camps. Does anyone have any leads or tips? We are very open-minded for this journey so the more out of our comfort-zone, the better! I know it's early but we are too excited to wait :P

Love of love,
Madison and Anna

Hi Madison and Anna. Welcome to Eplaya. Here is a link to last years camps -not all of them- that are listed in the What-When-Where. https://burningman.org/culture/history/ ... eme-camps/
Suggest you spend five minutes or a week :lol: and look through it for camps that fit you. When you write to them say what you can do for them as well as what you are looking for. Everyone has skills let them know what yours are.

Reach out to your first degree in person burner friends and go to their events. Between that and second degree to friends, you will have no problem. The Regionals list will have meetups, FB groups, happy hours and more.
