We have a some spots available in our Camp which is home-base for the S.S. Serpent Queen. Our camp maxes out out around 35-ish people with a 50/50 male female ratio of mostly 30-somethings. We keep it medium small so as to manage the needs of the SQ, which is our offering to the Playa as a public conveyance and mobile work of artistic antiquity.
We typically camp around the outer perimeter of the afternoon. The Burbs as it were.
What we can offer to the right candidate/s:
Work Access Pass- Sign on to join in crew duties aboard the S.S. Serpent Queen and receive a Workers Access Pass that allows you to come days before the gates open and assist our build out.
Meals: Organic high quality meals suited to any dietary needs for up to 10 days.
H20: Local high mountain filtered well water. All you need for up to 10 days.
A brief shower a day in our plumbed bathhouse.
Power: Solar array/ powers lights and refrigeration in our commercial kitchen.
2000sf. of communal space in a three top circus tent, with multiple tables and lounge space, as well as shade for your personal tent, and/or anchor point for your RV.
Tools: We have a full tented workshop anchored to a box truck complemented with every tool imaginable for finishing needs and build out of the SQ in the days leading up to the event opening.
Costumes: Racks of them, and mirrors.
Serpent Queen: All access as part of the crew. Observation deck views at 22 feet above the playa floor. An incredible vantage point to watch the Burn. The SQ seats up to 60 comfortably.
$750 dues to be paid in advance to reserve a spot.
Our camp is well appointed and very comfortable but not a turnkey nor glamp-style enterprise. Our long time membership of main core crew has done all of the construction and mechanical work on the SQ and our camp.
We have no Sherpas. Everyone in the camp assists in the creative, fashioning, chores, and crewing up of the SQ, which is one of the longest running large scale Mutant Vehicles on the Playa. We have been sailing the BRC since 2011. The Serpent Queen is continually being refined. This year we anticipate finishing of all new below deck interiors, and dialing of a new DJ system within our new baby grand piano for the top deck, and intelligent programmable lighting system all around.
We are a camp of doers… Builders, artists, carpenters, mechanics, engineers, film peeps, and musicians round out our ranks. We come from the Nor-Cal, LA, areas mostly with a few from London and and Europe. Our main core has been pilgrimaging to the Burn since the mid- 90s, so we have a pretty solid handle on our support system. We do what we do for the artistic endeavor and the challenge of pushing the creative level as far as we can. If you are the type of creative who loves to work as hard or harder than you party then please apply. Time devoted that is based on what skills you can bring and when they can be applied can be made in a variety of ways: Way before the event during our build week in the spring, or off site on your own entirely, or during arrival with lead-up, during event and/or after during strike…
