Theme camp recruiting thread!

Postby Theraplst » Thu Sep 27, 2012 4:06 pm

I'm sure it's been done, but anyways. If you're a burner looking for a theme camp, post what skills you can bring to a camp (Are you a chef? Can you pound 40 stakes of rebar per minute? You ever been to a turkish prison?). Other info that may be very useful: do you have your own ride in, are you a homicidal maniac etc

If you're a theme camp organizer looking for people that have specific skills, post what you're looking for here. Camp organizers should include in their post what the will need from potential campers. Alternatively, camp organizers could use this thread to advertise their own posts here on eplaya if they need members.

i'm really good at setting myself on fire. I started in 1983 and i'm not dead yet!
completely unconcerned.
"Savannah" I like it . . . it makes us sound forward-thinking, and not at all like trailblazing, professional-level procrastinors.

Thanks for that, I checked it out. Strange I hadn't heard of it. very useful.

Anyways, for this thread I made it primarily to get eplayans together in camps. It's a funny feeling, meeting someone you've talked to over the internet about burning man for months for the first time. I was camped next to figjam and we had a few conversations, twas quite interesting.

I like cheese. And... I like big butts (and I can not lie)! I also have my own cup, and I maintain a fairly small carbon foot print.
Must love cigars, and pop culture trivia. :coffee: :shock:

Less than average, as I have a Russian friend and things get uncomfortable after "Da tovarisch" and poverty/vodka/potato jokes.

Aru! My name is Rose. I do a lot of sewing (never have used a pattern) mostly clothes[skirts, vests] and sitting cushions[tea time, relaxing, om cushions]. I crochet, I do dry/wet felting, herbal lotions/tinctures, up-cycling craft projects, beading, and I can rub my tummy and pat my head at the SAME TIME.
I also dance and do yoga.. not sure if those would qualify for anything.
I'm better at dancing than I am yoga-- FREE FoRM.
My sewing specialties include woodland styles and colors. yuuum.
I can also set up a killer alter.

Love~

Look at the Sew Sew Village thread, maybe that'll be something interesting to you.
There are a lot of costume camps, but I think that people on playa who can do alterations will be in high demand.

I'm closing down this thread, and directing camp organizers to consider using the Burning Man Spark collaboration tool, as well as starting a separate thread for their camp on this board. When posting your thread, please be mindful of ePlaya's rules on Commerce & Advertising, the bit about camp financials in particular:
  • Camp Dues - we allow you to promote your camp and recruit for members on ePlaya whether or not your camp charges dues, though we ask you to not post dues amounts or financial breakdowns on our site. You can post that info on your camp's site, or have those conversations with interested parties via private message.


Those looking to find a camp, please browse through camp listings/recruitment posts on Spark and the Theme Camps board, and reach out directly to the camp(s) that you're interested in. Additionally, you may want to read the How To Join A Theme Camp or How To Start A Theme Camp threads.
