Mobility Camp will be back in 2018

Post by The Rat Lady » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:50 am

Hello All,
We will be Back in Center Camp again this year.
We will have some new Art Car tours and of course our "Ohhhh Shiny!" tours, and the ARTery tours leaving from our Camp again this year.

Our Obstacle courses will be up and running again as well (Come on, we dare ya)!

We will have mobility equipment to loan out, of course. So if you run across a folding, manual wheelchair with footrests, grab it! Bring it with you to the Playa and drop it off at our Camp! We will loan it out to a burner in need.

We are still in need of two vehicle passes for our critical personell, so if any of y'all have some , let me know!

If you have someone who has questions about how to make the Burn work in a wheelchair, we have lots of helpful info on our website http://www.mobilitycamp.org/

Can't wait to see everyone in the Dust!

Every burner should stop by the Mobility Camp to see what they are about!

I was honored to volunteer for the first mobility camp and it changed my perception of the burn and the burning man community entirely.

Most burners think inhibited mobility is a rare thing. I've encountered campmates with on-playa lower body injuries I encouraged to visit the previous mobility camp. They had great engagement.

I can guarantee you that the need to donate resources to any mobility camp is endless, and is a fine thing for burners to participate in. It can make your burner life.

The new, new, new, newest mobility camp is its own awesomeness, but listen to the first mobility camp founder on the idea: viewtopic.php?t=19888. The iTunes podcasts Burncast #47 seems to be the most reliable and free repository of the interview.

Yup! Without Dale and his Giant Head (Art Car!) We would not be where we are today!

He started everything :D

Here we are now getting new equipment and building like crazy to modify it to suit our needs!
Head over to our websitehttp://www.mobilitycamp.org/ to see a picture of it so far!
