Theme camps are the interactive core of Burning Man events. An ideal theme camp should create a visually or aurally stimulating presence and provide a communal space or other opportunity for interaction. Theme camps are meant to welcome the greater community into a communal space. Good signage, a welcoming host and interaction is highly recommended! Let our community know how to participate with your camp. If you build it, they will come.

Please consider the safety of fellow participants when designing your theme camp. Signs can help people know how to interact with your camp – for example, are you only open for certain hours? Do you have certain boundaries for personal camping space? How do you want people to experience your theme camp? Are you asking participants to social distance or wear masks in your camp? Be clear about your intentions and the community will follow.
