Burn with Mobility Camp – Assisting the Mobility Challenged and others at Burning Man!

Heading Toward the 2018 Burn!  I, Robot!

Mobility Camp Needs You!

For almost 20 years Mobility Camp has been serving the needs of Alternatively Abled Burners, offering the support needed to fully participate in Black Rock City.

We have the Trailer! Now we need to continue modifying it to suit the needs of Burners with mobility challenges on the Playa!

Here it is so far! Still needs seat cushions, shade and a few more mods.

So We are having a Fundraiser with the Burning Man Project!

Click HERE to visit the Fundraiser Page.

We can’t do it without your help!

If you’ve any questions on the above, please contact brcaccessibility@gmail.com

We will have a great Burn again this year, providing support to the Mobility Challenged Burner Community and to the many visitors to our camp from all over Black Rock City! Thanks to everyone – our great volunteers, Burning Man and those who came by and were helped by our services!

We look forward to feedback from the Black Rock City community and our campers, as we prepare for next year. Feel free to reach out with comments and suggestions, and if you wish to help us, drop us a line or look at our wish list page on this website.

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  Dragonfly Rig below in it’s final year.  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! We will also have a ramp for loading and unloading Large Art Cars.

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.

We also Stage for the ARTery Mobility impaired tours.

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.

  Our beloved Dragonfly on the sunrise tour: It has toured it’s last tour. This year we will have a new rig!

When coming to visit us, remember that Center Camp is it’s own clock face.

Looking so forward to seeing you in the dust in 2018! Stay tuned here for more.

Mobility Camp also provides educational support to the Alternatively Abled, as well as their supportive friends and family via our website and email prior to the Burn, where we try to answer any questions you might have.  We also offer two Obstacle Courses !  Ever wondered what it would be like to do the Burn in a wheelchair? on crutches? Come by and find out!  We have a lot of experience to offer to those who wonder if it is even possible to go to Burning Man, click here with your questions – Contact us.

We offer a Wednesday workshop helping you  make your own camp or art car accessible in the spirit of radical inclusion! …..and of course we will also have our rad Gifting Box, so come by and drop something off, or take something with you, the Book Crossing Zone, which offers books of all sorts, as well as our Temporary Tattoo station….

We are developing our Resources Page, so please email us  with any tips or tricks you might have, or know of, which would help or interest the mobility challenged on or off the Playa.

We continue to work on building a strong camp team for Future Burns, if you are interested, please contact us!  We had a small but full 2017 camp, of about 45 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 16 years of support and services by Mobility Camp to the mobility challenged, in the name of radical inclusion!

 We are always looking for your help and support.  We welcome volunteers and other resources – should you be in a position to help, please visit our wishlist page. Thank you!
