Camp Fees

We have some significant external donors and matching corporate funds.  Check out our 2017 budget, [2016] budget and [2015] financial summary if you want to know more about the details.

The 2017 fees were as follows (2018 will be very similar):

$480.00   Burning Man ticket including fees and postage (through us or some other source).

 $96.00    Vehicle pass including fees and postage (one per vehicle)

(Actual price for 2 tickets + 1 VP is $1055.94, total rounding error is $0.06)

$100.00 Camping expenses (Kitchen and food, shade, water, grey water, etc)

$100.00 Recommended donation* in support of our art:

(sponsors talent, stage, sound, dance floor, signs and storage for next year)

$ANYTHING Extra sponsorship.

---------- Total yourself

This is officially a sliding scale: if the fees cause hardship they can be deferred or waived.  Please inform of your intent.

Some portion of camp fees must be paid by the end of July, when we start ordering food and supplies.

In past years a couple of people gifted extra tickets to camp.    After the new year we will issue tax receipts for all donations (Not including ticket purchases and camping expenses for which you receive direct benefit).

* We are a 501(c)3, registered with Benvity and eligible for matching donations from many employers.   See the donations page.



You are welcome to use “friends and family” to save fees.   Please put your name in the comment field just in case I can’t match up your paypal account for some reason.
