Calling all Burn in the Forest Theme Camps and Artists! Site Visit June 17th

Thank you for your participation!!

If you have already registered your theme camp or art installation, and you want to help decide where it will be placed at the event, please have someone from your group attend the Site Visit on Sunday, June 17th.  We will be meeting at noon at Squamish Valley Campground.  Directions are here:  When you arrive at the campground, let them know you are there for the site visit.

If you have NOT yet registered your theme camp or art installation, please do so as soon as possible here:  The deadline for registration is June 13th. (sorry, now passed)

If you don’t register your theme camp or art installation, or you prefer that we not place you, you can find a spot when you arrive at the event, but please be aware that some of the most desirable spots will be reserved for those who have registered and requested placement.  Please note that any amplified sound bigger than a boombox MUST be registered. We have limited space for sound so we cannot promise that we will be able to accommodate you, but we will do our best. Sound systems bigger than a boombox are not allowed in the general camping area.

If no one from your project can attend the site visit, please contact us ( and let us know, and we will do our best to place you in line with the info you provided when you registered.  BUT we’d much rather have your input in person so that placement can be a collaborative process.

If you’re not bringing a theme camp or art installation, you’re still welcome to join us, but we will need to stay focused on placement in our discussion.  Hope to see lots of you there!

(Oh, and there are less than 200 tickets remaining.  Get on it if you haven’t already –

Arctica Shifts
A message from Toi Box:
Want to work at the coolest place on the playa?
Seriously what could be better than partying, laughing and playing with ICE during the hottest part of the day. Shifts are 9-12, 12-3, 3-6
And if you are at all a morning person you can hang with me. I will be OPS at Arctica Center from 9am-1:30. So come party with some polar bears who truly know the meaning of Chill The Fuck Out.

Bzzz! Bee Theme on the playa
In case you missed this, there is an important BEE component to this year’s Burn!

Summer Intention 13.5
Jul 20th 2012- Jul 23rd 2012
presented by: Tribal Harmonix

This weekend: some form of outdoor version of the famous Intention retreat (see last year’s website for an idea of the vibe:  )
We don’t know yet exactly what form this will take, and whether it will just be a moderately-organized camping trip of really amazing people… or a fully-organized summer version of Intention (as we did in years before, Summer Intention 7.5, 8.5 and 9.5 were all amazing!) with sound system, workshops, communal meals, and as much infrastructure as we can easily provide…  or something in between!
All we know is… if you like the Intention gathering, and you like camping in the woods in the summer… then you’re gonna love this!
Email [email protected] for details if you’re interested in joining the organizing team, or have any questions or suggestions about the event.
