Burning Man Contradance Camp

Aug 28 - Sep 5, 2016

Camp registration (and other volunteers).

Currently seeking: Ticket Fairies, Campers and other volunteers!

Or ticket allotment for the DGS sale was way short of our needs, for even basic staff. Please! If you are even remotely considering joining us, please sign up for the main sale (both you and your S.O.!). We will be setting up an internal contra camp ticket matching service to pair anybody who has tickets that they can't use with staff that didn't get tickets.

Ticket Fairies are people who sign up to purchase Burning Man tickets, even though they might not attend.

We do not have a camp budget yet but we will tentatively be reducing our fees slightly and pulling back on camp food relative to past years.  This may change if we find a volunteer kitchen manager with the right experience to run a kitchen at the scale needed to support our camp.
