General Information (This information is in the process of being updated for 2020. Pardon our dust.)
The South Bay Burner community is a vibrant, diverse group… and all of them mirror various aspects of the overall Burning Man experience. In 2017, we have 39 Theme-camps originating from Southbay, plus an additional 45 remote Theme-camps that have camp members from the Southbay… you may choose to camp with friends from other cities, or welcome far-flung friends into your existing camps!
- How do I create my own Theme-Camp?
- How do I find an existing South Bay Theme-Camp? (local Southbay listing)
- 2019 Burning Man Theme-Camp Listing now available (Burning Man site)
- Archive listing of ALL Theme-Camps (Burning Man Theme-Camp Archives)
- How do I find a camp’s playa address? (waiting for BRC 2019 City
Map to be published)
- Why is my Camp name NOT listed in the Burning Man directory?
- How do I ADD my camp name to the local SouthBay Listing so people can find me?
- I don’t have a Theme-Camp… but I wanna create a magical living space anyway!
You have a variety of choices from creating your own formal theme-camp or bunking up with other formal theme-camps who already have registered for placement, to camping with friends or just on your own!
How to create your own Theme Camp
Note that Theme-Camp registration questionnaire goes live mid-Feb and must be submitted before end of April!
We recommend that you start with the following info on Burning Man website:
There are plenty of videos and how-to information readily available on the main Burning Man website, so check out Events -> Theme-Camp and Villages for additional important information to better prepare for your trip to the playa!

Why my Theme-Camp is NOT in the main directory?
So the Burning Man 2017 Theme-Camp Listing is showing ONLY those theme-camps that formally registered, on-time, to get their placement… AND the Theme-Camp requested for the information to be publicly available.
Registered theme-camps: Burning Man provides opportunity for folks to create & register formal Theme-Camps, and request an optimal playa placement… that is to predetermine adequate space for all the folks in the camp & where on the playa the Theme-Camp would be located. These formal Theme-Camps have met the criteria of contributing an overall experience to the playa community (see How do I create my own Theme-Camp section). And they also were okay for this information to be publicly available on Burning Man website & to the regions.
Unregistered Theme-Camps: There are a variety of reasons that you will NOT find a Theme-Camp’s information on the Burning Man directory listing… even if you know the camp or have visited them in the past.
- Theme-Camps may have requested for their information to NOT be widely shared, as they are NOT accepting new members or for any reason want to remain a private group.
- It is possible that the Theme-Camp missed the deadline to register this year!
- Sometimes folks get together and DO have a “theme” for their camp, but they have not registered & requested for a predetermined placement; they basically are happy with coming to the playa and the adventure of “finding” an available space for their folks and still contribute to the playa and the community… we would NOT know of these camps, unless the camp members or leaders would inform us about their existance!

|Infinite Love||We are a fun, loving community that sparks transcendent experiences.
Each of us has our own concept of Infinite Love and how to remove the barriers that keep us from embodying Infinite Love in every moment of our lives. For me (Tom), I invite you to think of an issue about which you care deeply, perhaps in politics, religion or social issues. Now imagine someone who disagrees with you about this important issue. Build in your mind’s eye a picture of that person. How do you feel towards them? Is there anger, frustration, dismay? Now realize that this person is a product of their environment, their upbringing, their context. If you had grown up in their family and gone to their high school, you would almost certainly share their views. They aren’t a ‘bad person’, they are just different. In this way We Are All One, so all we should hold for our fellow humans is compassion and understanding.
What is our gift to the playa?
Huh? How exactly? What programming creates this?
