What is a Theme Camp? 主題營地是什麼?

First, Lantern Burn is not a festival, it’s an event and a small congregation on top of a mountain. At most other festivals you’ll find friends camping together in their cars and tents behind where the main festival activities take place. At Lantern Burn it’s different! The majority of people who go to Burning Man are part of planned, registered camps. At Lantern Burn we are striving to do the same. The main event is everywhere; it’s where people like you contribute interactive, creative, incredible experiences to share with everyone. Camps are organized groups of people doing just that.

A Theme Camp is an interactive camp. Theme Camps are groups of  participants who come together to provide a service, entertainment, art, or other creative interactive experience for everyone else else at Lantern Burn. They can be anything! At the same time they are a way for participants to come together and share resources for camping, cooking, and other daily needs. If you are interested in trying to start your own theme camp and gather people to run it fill out our Theme Camp Form (now closed). If you would like to see about joining one of our already existing theme camps message us on our contact page and we can help you get in touch with the camp leaders. Current Theme Camps are listed below.

*Theme Camps will be updated on a regular basis leading up to the event as projects evolve.*
