We all know that Burningman celebrates the ephemeral that is life. Still, with only one week a year we plan our camps very carefully.
Alas, things can still go wrong with your theme camp--causes include: Warehouse fire, divorce, death, infrastructure truck is utterly smashed in a gruesome accident, sabotage (internal and external), illness, ticket woes. You never know when you might be facing the playa with all your hard work shattered.
This is where Emergency Polka Camp comes in.
Emergency Polka Camp is a revolutionary service that will save your camp and your burn. Joining gives you the option--at any time, up to 2 weeks before the gate opens--of having our polka infrastructure and theme become your camp. We can provide public shade, dance floor, music, polka lessons, camp kitchen, and more.
Because, at Emergency Polka Camp, it's Polka to the Rescue!

People stop me in the supermarket and say: Aren't you just peddling some sort of plug and play camp crap?
No. I am not.
Emergency Polka Camp is not plug and play. We will not make you costumes. We will not feed you. We will not drive any RVs for you to stay in. All we provide is public and shared infrastructure, music and expertise. Or, to be a little more "polka", knowhow. You build the camp, you cook the meals, you make each theme night work. You still have the full theme camp experience, in all its harried, messy glory. All EPC is doing is helping you over the embarrassment of having missed your dream. We know you worked all year to get that theme camp together. It's not your fault that an asteroid took out all your carefully built misting bar. Now, you have only a month to replace it. Remember--Polka to the Rescue!

and, unjon, here at Emergency Polka Camp we realize that man does not live by polka alone. Shottische, waltz, tango, cumbia are welcome.

I plan to have at least one polka related bruise - suggestions on how i might obtain this would be gratefully appreciated.

I don't know what I had the urge to write that. Just saw polka and thought of physical pain.

The most traditional bruise is from polka-ing into another couple, hard. Another is to be in the way when they roll out the barrel. Of course, there's always getting beaned by an irate tuba player--I'm sure you know how to rile them up. Rest assured, that there will plenty of beer to facilitate your explorations in this fascinating field.
