Dues will be required for all camp members to help pay for infrastructure and
our gifts to the playa. They will be required for each burn/event, but will generally
be $50 or less for regional burns.
We are anticipating that dues for 2015 BM will be $170 plus $10 a day for each day
you plan to be at camp.
Note: The information below currently pertains to Burning Man 2015, but more information about what is normally included in camp dues will be listed on this page at a later date.
Water will be included in your camp dues... Keep in mind that water for a week in the desert could weigh more than you do... We want to make sure we have enough to drink, do dishes, etc... Water is a significant expense to purchase, transport and store and it is one of the things we will make sure you do not have to worry about bringing yourself.
$10 a day will cover your meal plan at camp. The meal plan will be based on the number of days you will be on the playa. If you want to be excluded from the meal plan to save money that is fine, but you will not have access to camp coolers or storage, you must provide for yourself. The meal plan is currently going to be serving two meals per day, one hot meal that will be available for a number of hours each day, and one "cold" meal that will be made and packaged for you to eat at camp or carried with you. There will also be snacks, meal replacement bars, fruit, etc available that is included in the plan.
Camp Dues will include access to our medical supply kit. This will be a FULLY STOCKED first aid kit with medicines and other supplies available to everyone at camp. You are encouraged to pack the things you need, but we will have extra sunblock, chapstick, sunburn relief cream, ibuprofen, eye drops, asprin, bandages etc. (there is also access to medical services on the playa, but for simple things, we will have LOTS of extra's available. Take care of yourself out there.
We plan to have ice available at camp at all times. Not the $2 bags of ice you buy at Center Camp (yes, you can buy ice at BM... coffee and ice... that's it) but an actual ice machine producing ice for our camp... again, this is just in the plans, but its a big part of our plans.
