The 10 Principles
The 10 principles here are those that guide our mother event, Burning Man , and are central to what Fire Camp is About. This is what it means to burn. It is crucial that every participant understand and abides by these principles, it is the heart of our community!
Everyone is welcome, all types, all kinds, friends, strangers, and in between.
Gifts are unconditional offerings, whether material, service oriented, or even less tangible. Gifting does not ask for a return or an exchange for something else.
Hand in hand with gifting, burns are environments with no commercial transactions or advertising. Nothing is for sale - we participate rather than consume.
You are responsible for you. Bring everything with you that you need. Burns are an opportunity for you to enjoy relying on yourself.
What are your gifts, talents, and joys? Only you can determine the form of your expression.
Cooperation and collaboration are cornerstones of the burn experience. We cooperate to build social networks, group spaces, and elaborate art, and we work together to support our creations.
Civic responsibility involves the agreements that provide for the public welfare and serve to keep society civil. Event organizers take responsibility for communicating these agreements to participants and conducting events in accordance with applicable laws.
Leaving No Trace
In an effort to respect the environments where we hold our burns, we commit to leaving no trace of our events after we leave. This means everything that you bring with you goes home with you. Everyone cleans up after themselves, and whenever possible, we leave our hosting places better than we found them.
The radical participation ethic means you are the event. Everyone works; everyone plays. No one is a spectator or consumer.
"Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience
Participants only!There are no lifeguards on duty. There will be fire performances and installations that could cause injury or death. You assume all liability of injury or death that may occur as a result of attending this event.
No firearms, fireworks, rockets or explosives. Fire cannons and flamethrowers, fire art and installations are all invited.
No comps. We'd love to have you (or your band, troupe, circus, whatever) come to Fire Camp but we ask everyone to pay their own way. (That includes the event organizers who all pay full price to participate.) No refunds. If you can no longer use your invitation, you could probably sell it to another willing participant.
Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. You take responsibility for yourself, your actions, and the well-being and actions of anyone that is under the age of 18 that is under your supervision.There may be mature themes expressed at this event including overt nudity. Deal with it.
This is a primitive camping environment. Bring everything you need to survive, including a tent, water, food and clothing. No potable water is available on site.
No commerce! There is nothing for sale at this event. Commercial vending, advertising, and cash transactions of ANY kind on the premises will NOT be tolerated. Bring everything you need.
Possession, sale, and/or consumption of illegal drugs and distribution of alcohol to minors are violations of federal law. It is your responsibility to respect all state and federal rules and regulations.
