2015 Camp Application

Interactivity Description
We have an amazing program for the week and tons of activity and presence mostly during the day, but have a whole vibe thing going on for the evening. We have really really upgraded this year and want to be a real presence for the burn.

First of all, we are building a spiritual temple that will look like a blend of Tibet and Hindu ideologies with a feature of the Hindu god Hanuman calling our theme this year “Hanuman’s House of Tea and Yoga”.

When you first pull up to our camp you will have to stop and park your bike in our safe area for those. We have several major elements on the street that will catch the attention of passers that include:

– THE WHEEL OF DESTINY where you can ask a question and get any answer possible. It is a combination of a magic 8 ball and a spinning wheel that will be accessible all throughout the event!

– CHAKRA sculpture will be mobile and the pieces can be moved. It will be glowy, shiny, illuminated for night, featuring the chakras.

– big l.e.d. sign that will become a feature from dusk to late night with moving graphic images, flashing, super psychedelic nifty awesome messages including more representation Hanuman.

– we will have lots of monkeys that will also be illuminated just like any monkey god’s temple would have.

– our temple will be ornate and colorful with a beautiful archway coming from the street. It is an inviting passage into a large comfy space filled with mild mood music and incense.

– THAT’S NOT ALL!!!!! Three days of the week we will host a boba tea giveaway! Yes we will have all the proper paper work for health department, but it will be amazing.

Our temple will host events, classes and workshops all through the week by people in my camp as well as people from other camps that are sharing our space to teach

– Yoga, Meditation, Dance, Chanting… and a great lesson about Hanuman!

– …and once again! THAT’S NOT ALL … we are having a wrestling exhibition; before anyone freak out it will be all in fun, on foam pads, typically naked (we suspect) in an inflatable pool and using a dry, safe water based lubricant.

We hope people will want to find rest, peace and comfort in our lovely temple in their travels plus take advantage of the tons of amazing things we will have all week long…

But… that’s not all!!!!!!! I said it again! We will have a fire barrel (yes, all safety concerns PLUS are being implemented) with benches people passing can enjoy at night.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put us on a cool spot on the main strip across the street from Comfort & Joy if possible.

Physical Description
There will be a row of flags on the street welcoming people as well as our led lit sign with our raised Sun Guardians logo! While the face really is a row of car ports there will also be several items making it really eye catching.

A red archway with carpet and a drape inside leading into the temple.

A store front for out Boba Tea House with an extensive menu (the secret is we only have one of the items on a menu of a hundred things.

Near the Tea House will be the wheel of destiny where people can ask questions and get answers for their destiny.

On the opposite corner of camp will be a shiny, glowy chakra sculpture.

On the side if the temple will be a burn barrel set up for out camper and visiting guests with all the safety.

The passage to the temple will be warm, bright and inviting.

We will use RV’s and pulled trailers on the sides of the camp/ Our solar panels will be behind the fire barrel area and a wall of vehicles hiding our evap pond.

Leave No Trace is a cornerstone of the Burning Man ethos and one of our Ten Principles.  
Practice the 5 R’s: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Restore and Respect.,Reduce trash when packing.,Create a detailed strategy or plan for Leaving NO Trace

During Burning Man, our camp will:
Keep smelly garbage away from recyclables in BRC.,Clean As We Go and Keep It From Hitting the Ground.,Adopt the seven principles and practices of Leave No Trace at Burning Man.,Educate all camp members about minimizing our impact on the playa, so that my LNT crew can relax during the event knowing that all of our camp members are doing their part.,Conserve energy, use renewable energy sources and minimize waste.,Collect, reduce and properly dispose of grey water.,Use or creatively use discarded materials for all the components of our camp structure and decorations, so that our camp is sustainable year after year.

As we depart the playa, our camp will:
Bring tools to rake, magnetic rake, sweep and pick up every last nail and wood shard that dropped on the playa surface so that I leave my space and my surrounding spaces better than I found them,Follow the ‘rule of thumb for line sweeps’- (hyperlink http://www.burningman.com/environment/images/moopmap10fin.jpg) – performing required multiple sweeps of our camp before leaving BRC. (One sweep is not enough. Do as many passes as necessary: the strength of the line sweep is in the number of people and passes.),Organize neighborhood MOOP sweeps. (Joining with neighboring camps and sweeping an entire block together is the best insurance against MOOP hot spots, bringing your own MOOP scores down.),Secure all vehicles’ loads to prevent windblown trash on the highway and in neighboring communities.
