Camp Dues 2018
How much to pay; where to pay; and what can I expect for my money??
Camp dues in 2017 were $535. We expect they will be around the same in 2018, give or take $10 or so.
In addition to dues, we will also collect a refundable deposit of approximately $100. The purpose of this deposit is to secure every camper's commitment to their bake and camp day shifts, and their assistance during build week or teardown. Campers who complete these obligations will have the entirety of their deposit returned to them upon return from the playa. Should any camper fail to fulfill their promised contributions to camp, their deposit will be allocated toward future improvements to camp infrastructure and/or compensation for those who work extra in their absence.

If you are also paying for accommodation and/or bedding and/or bike (see below for more information), please could you make sure you make a note of this with your payment. It wouldn't hurt either if you sent an email confirming this as well: email@example.com

first time camp mates
First time campers with us also have the (highly, very, extremely recommended) option to pay a one-off 'rental' fee for accommodation, bedding, mattress and bike. Accommodation is either a yurt or ice-tent (allocated on a first come first served basis when you rock up to the camp...both are equally comfortable).
2017 pricing (to be updated for 2018)
- Yurt/ice-tent: $150
- Bedding, including mattress: $50
- Bike (including lock & basket): $50
It's definitely cheaper than providing them yourself, helps to ensure we have enough funds to cover yurt tape, any repairs, and replenishing old bike/bedding stock. And reduces unnecessary wastage/purchases. We don't guarantee everything will be in pristine, brand-new condition, but you'll have a roof over your head, comfort around your body, wheels to whizz around on and more space in your suitcases for all those fabulous costumes! If you've camped with us before, there's no charge as you would have already contributed funds before. If you're sharing accommodation you need only pay once, however we can't guarantee single mattresses. Bike costs are obviously per person.
We're set up this way to make it easy for our camp mates to join us wherever they live around the globe. But don't be fooled...we're not a plug 'n' play camp. We come to work hard, gift hard and play hard...all in strict adherence to The 10 Principles.
