We had a great crew, everybody works well in the wind and dust (which know can be part of desert living – and also proves what a dedicated and awesome camp we are, thanks to all on board. Services flowed, we helped a lot of people and look forward to reporting to everyone how we did. Of course, we are now catching up to the default world, and we are so grateful that our camp gets better each year!
Mobility Camp, located in Center Camp at 7.30…….provides wheelchair friendly art and playatours for the mobility challenged, the walking wounded, and the able bodied – ‘worst come first served’ – in that order – see our wonderful Dragonfly Rig below. We also provide a charging station for medical equipment, as well as educational support for the mobility challenged both on and off the Playa, and we provide somewhat rustic wheelchair friendly camping facilities!
Tours of the Art and the Playa leave Mobility Camp 4x daily, except for the Major Burns…..we run 3x those epic days and evenings, as our sunset tour combines with our night tour.
Tours Run at: 5:45 am – 9 am – 6 pm – 9 pm – Come by Mobility Camp as soon as you hit the Playa to sign up for a tour! Tours last about 1.5 – 2 hours – and run no specific route as we have several different drivers.
When coming to visit us, remember that Center Camp has it’s own clock face.

We had a small but full 2016 camp, of about 40 people, but continue to look for burners both mobility challenged and able bodied who can add to our experience and the experience we offer to others. We are continuing to revision the camp under new leadership as of the 2013 Burn…….we are proud to be able to continue over 15 years of support and services by Mobility Camp to the mobility challenged, in the name of radical inclusion!
