Are you an engineering aficionado looking for a memorable and community-driven experience at Burning Man? Join Camp HellVetica, a dynamic and innovative camp of 20-30 like-minded individuals passionate about contributing to this temporary city in the desert.
Camp HellVetica features a flame effect as its central interactivity, providing a visually striking and exciting element to the camp. Citizens of HellVetica enjoy shade, meals, water, drinks, and some treats (aka snacks) from the Quartermaster.
HellVetica is a rigorous, well-organised undertaking operating out of two shipping containers that are transported to and from Playa. Citizens are expected to participate in build and strike and attend camp events (3 hours into the sunset on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, as the flame effect runs) and contribute to the costs of the operation via camp fee (the 2022 fee was USD 600).
Do you follow the ten principles and want to enjoy this unforgettable week as part of a small circle of enthusiastic Burners? Check back in March 2024 to apply for the next edition.
