Black Rock Desert Camp-out: 7 Days

For over 2 decades, the Green Tortoise has had the privilege of being a part of the Burning Man community in the Black Rock Desert.

This is not a spectator event! Enrich your experience by actively participating and immersing yourself in this radical culture. Get some tips on how to participate!

Over the years the event has grown and changed, and so have we!  In fact, this is the one event that we get to shed our normal company roles and evolve into our dust-loving, community-serving, burner identities.

To make sure that our focus and our presence out on the playa are clearly represented here, we are taking this time to develop a better description of how we operate, how we select our camp mates and what our playa camp mates are expected/required to do.

Please check back in December 2015 for more information.

Thank you for your patience!
