What is a Theme Camp? 什麼是主題營地?

First, Turtle Burn is not a festival, it’s an event and a small congregation on top of a mountain. At most other festivals you’ll find friends camping together in their cars and tents behind where the main festival activities take place. At Turtle Burn it’s different! The majority of people who go to Burning Man are part of planned, registered camps. At Turtle Burn we are striving to do the same. The main event is everywhere; it’s where people like you contribute interactive, creative, incredible experiences to share with everyone. Camps are organized groups of people doing just that.

A Theme Camp is an interactive camp. Theme Camps are groups of  participants who come together to provide a service, entertainment, art, or other creative interactive experience for everyone else else at Turtle Burn. They can be anything! At the same time they are a way for participants to come together and share resources for camping, cooking, and other daily needs. If you are interested in trying to start your own theme camp and gather people to run it fill out our Theme Camp Form. If you would like to see about joining one of our already existing theme camps message us on our contact page and we can help you get in touch with the camp leaders. Current Theme Camps for June are listed below.

*Theme Camps will be updated on a regular basis leading up to the event as projects evolve.*

No shoes or smoking allowed inside the dome. Dazzle at the shining garden of community-welded gargantuan metal flowers that will surround the dome. Enjoy some flower refreshments. Relax.

Hammock Village 吊床村

Hammock Village is a massive collection of hammocks linking the trees of the site together for those seeking a moment of relaxation, a nap, a swing or a place to chill. If you have a hammock and would like to add it to our village we welcome you to do so. Come hang with us!

Cats Downstairs BDSM 貓樓上BDSM主題營地

You won’t find felines at Cats Downstairs, but you will be able to join an introductory shibari (Japanese rope bondage) workshop, a bullwhip workshop (or performance) and a fetish night full of rope sessions and kinky costumes and activities! Come tie or get tied up, with suspension points, straps, carabiners and more for you to play with, and music too! Cats will share the art of shibari, demonstrating how ropes can extend our bodies, allowing us to communicate with our partners in new ways. If ropes aren’t your thing, a professional will also provide a flogging class!

The camp welcomes all genders and sexualities. No matter how you identify, feel free and safe to respectfully speak and be yourself, provided you communicate and act with everyone’s consent.
