How will YOU participate in the ORPHANAGE?
There are NO spectators at Burning Man, so we expect ALL of our orphans to participate in some manner with the camp. MANY hands working just a little bit EACH day makes it EASY for everybody. On average LESS than (1) hour a DAY, is all it takes to make a camp run smoothly. Look over the list BELOW and choose (1) crew to work on
Monitor the community KITCHEN, refill spray bottles, beat the shit out of anybody who leaves leftovers or a mess in the kitchen.
Tear DOWN crew
(Eligible for EARLY ENTRY pass and DGS ticket) Responsible for packing up the camp. MUST be able to work thru MONDAY evening the 4th. BONUS, exclusive closing parties. Why WASTE your time waiting in line to get out, when you could be winding down at a mellow pace with those in the know.
Construct and maintain EVAP ponds & shower structures. Easiest job in the camp....requires about (5) min a day, pushing water around with pool broom
Bartending, Alcohol purchase & transport from Reno, Bar setup & teardown, ICE runs, MOOP control in BAR, ect.
Purchase and coordinate transport of firewood to BRC Supervise burn barrel operationKnow how to use fire extinguishers
Setup generators, Layout electrical grid, Refuel generators, change oil and clean air filters. Install SOLAR lights
Cigar Lounge, Bowling Alley, Hippie Fishing, Dance Academy, these are some of the activities we gift to the citizens of BRC
Set UP crew
Responsible for building of the camp. You MUST be able to be ON PLAYA by NOON Friday the 25th.
NO SHIT, really you need to read the "HOUSEKEEPING" section. Failure to live and die by the "COMMANDMENTS" and "HOUSEKEEPING" will result in EVICTION from the camp and NO refund
