A quick word about camp dues. They help us – a lot – with maintaining and improving our infrastructure, so that those who join us at Burning Man are well provided and cared for. We want to encourage minimizing footprints by bringing less gear and equipment – because we provide it for you. Plus, we don’t think $100 altogether unreasonable for a safe, welcoming place to hang your hat on the Playa.
The Choir provides a large communal shaded courtyard adjacent to the kitchen. Tables, benches and some chairs will be provided. It’s a great place to eat, chill, rest or hang-out at any time of day, with solar lighting at night to keep things cheery and safe!
The Choir provides a large communal kitchen for everyone’s use: two large 3-burner Stoves, a tabletop BBQ (propane for both provided), shelving, tables, a dish washing station and a hydration station are included. You’ll also find our First Aid Kit, a Fire Extinguisher, and extra potable water there. Please bring your own cookware, and extra water to share for the hydration station. Feel free to collaborate with your campmates and make shared meals together.
The Camp Shower provides privacy and is designed to suspend a maximum weight of 3 gallons only. You MUST bring your own solar shower bag (or share one with a friend). Do not over-fill your solar shower bag. Use only biodegradable and low-suds soaps (Camp Suds). Use the foot pump to empty the shower tub into the grey water holding tank when finished.
Grey Water Disposal
Two 250-gallon holding tanks are provided for the safe and easy disposal of grey water only. Absolutely NO FOOD WASTE! If you have excess ice chest water and don’t know what to do with it, check with the camp MOOP officer. If you don’t know what grey water is, go back and do your homework.
The Choir has a Burn Barrel to make things cozy at night, and to help dispose of other burnables. Please use it, however you must assist in its maintenance. Never leave a fire unattended! Before lighting another fire, ashes must be cleared and disposed of in the metal can provided. Use your best judgment.
Please read and observe the Open Fire Guidelines provided in BMorg’s online Camp Resource Guide
Electronics Charging Station
While we encourage our campers to turn their gizmos off during the Burn, the Choir provides a solar-powered charging station for all your electronic devices, with a variety of USB and 12v ports. Bring your own power cords and tag your name on them. Many of these often get left behind.
Communal Ice Chest
The Choir will provide an ice chest for communal use. It’s a great place to keep beer (hint!).
