Friendlandia is looking for community-minded folks to take part in our Burning Man camp this year. Friendlandia has been running in it’s current from since 2015 and is known for:
– 24/7 self-serve friendgagment ceremonies in our Zome temple
– friendship bracelet-making parties
– general welcoming, chill vibe

Interested? Read on for a few expectations and what to do next.

1. Participate in a work day:
6/29 in Castro Valley — yes, I know that’s very, very soon. Don’t panic if you can’t make this.

7/13-14 in Reno at our shipping container — this one is more important, but again, don’t panic if you can’t do it. There are other ways to contribute for those who simply aren’t able to make work days.

2. Ideally, be on playa for both set up (~2 days of work) and strike (~1.5 days of work). You MUST be available for at least one of these.

3. Be a co-host for 1 or 2 bracelet making parties (depends on how many campers we have). These are low key and fun. Trust me.

4. Be interested in being with us in community. We have found our experiences on playa and the friendships built and thriving for many years come from being together and sharing experiences. And… it’s Burning Man, so everyone needs to be permitted and encouraged to have your burn! It’s a balance, and we want to camp with people who want to practice striking that balance. The more terse version: Please don’t ask to camp with us if your plan is be around only when you have to be.

Finally, a few more things, just help y’all get some sense of Friendlandia being a good match for who you are and your intentions at Burning Man this year.

We’re a queer-friendly camp and always have people from under that large umbrella. Differently abled? Yes, you are welcome, and we’ll work with you around what’s needed. BIPOC? Yes, you are welcome. At this time all committed campers are white and culturally American. We’d like to change this.

We aren’t a sound camp. We have no amplified music beyond what comes out of a portable bluetooth speaker.

We aren’t so much into booze. The camp doesn’t provide it. Of course people bring their own and use it as they see fit. This is just to say, we don’t have the vibe of a drinking camp and don’t have a bar.

Still here? Great! Respond, and we’ll (That’s me, Ryan, and my co-lead Melissa) set up a Zoom meeting to chat with you.
