Description

Looking for a badass camp with the most amazing people you’ll ever meet? Read on….

CouchBurners has been providing a diverse and welcoming oasis in Black Rock City since 2007.​ We’re a highly international camp, with members from all around the globe. Our roots are with the CouchSurfing community, and it’s in that spirit that we’ve always provided an open door, dusty sofas, and adventurous, open-minded attitudes to the playa. We welcome veterans and virgins alike!

Our community in 2024 will offer drinking water, shade from the desert sun, an active stocked open bar, larger-than-life games, interactive lighting, a warm and welcoming fire pit, a modest camp shower, and a lovable crew of approximately 75 burners from most corners of the planet. We cook a warm vegetarian dinner for our members nightly, and host more than 20 events throughout burn week (and throughout the year away from Black Rock City).

While we aim to provide a comfortable, well-appointed camp experience with solid infrastructure and amenities, we are NOT a plug-and-play camp or a posh glamping environment. Our campers are expected to participate enthusiastically, bringing your passions, ideas, hobbies, and labor to Black Rock City to make our playa home special, and you’ll be assigned one day of burn week to work a camp shift that keeps CouchBurners purring!

Please read website for dues.

Our budget is fully transparent. All campers pay dues on the same scale, and have equal privilege of knowing exactly where their money is being spent. Any surplus money remaining in the camp’s budget is redirected back into expenses required to maintain the camp throughout the year (such as container storage) and investments into infrastructure for the next year (In 2023, we’ve upgraded to a new 6kWh Bluetti solar setup). This year, we purchased two x 3K Wh Bluetti expansion batteries.vj4
