Camp Soft Landing

Providing a comfortable setting for visionary discussion and tea service amongst the mayhem of Black Rock City

Greetings Camp Soft Landing campers

Camp Soft Landing's build crew leaves for the playa in one week! I’m nervous and excited. Is everything as ready as it can be? Are seventeen spreadsheets enough? Have I started getting myself ready at all? Was last year better? The answers to all of these questions will only become clear in time. We'll be putting up the teahouse car barns, Palenque Norte tent, community kitchen shade and car barn, and all the rest of camp infrastructure.

Expect at least one more newsletter with the Palenque Norte schedule!

There’s still time to pay your dues, and still room to join Camp Soft Landing!

Pay dues and sign up for shifts to contribute to camp here!

Leaving for the playa Sunday, August 28? Help camp out!

If you’re leaving from the bay area for the playa on or after Sunday, August 28, and have room for a piece of camp gear with the dimensions 3’x6’x1’, please contact us at We’d really appreciate your help!

Semi-official Camp map

Huzzah! Here it is! (At the bottom of this page!) Thanks to some extraordinary help from Roko’s Basilica, we have this nifty computer rendering of our camp map. There is another possible version of this map with a slight change to the location of the fuel depot and one pod, if we are not placed on the corner. We have reason to believe that we will be right on the corner of 8:00 and B, but it’s impossible to know until we’re standing there… in a week. (!)

Fundraiser for Roko’s Basilica - August 20

From Roko’s Basilica…

The Metaverse Scholars Club is a not-for-profit collective of technologists, artists, developers, futurists and enthusiasts dedicated to the advent of a free and open Metaverse for all. We believe it must reflect the full spectrum of human experience, and a wide diversity of perspectives are needed to contribute.

We are throwing a kick ass party to raise funds for our Burning Man camp.

Come experience a sneak peek of the experiences we will be bringing to the desert. With your help and support, we will be able to share thought provoking interactive mixed reality art installations that will leave a lasting impact on people and inspire new Scholars. 

Click the below link to RSVP, complete the short form and you will be forwarded to our Eventbrite page.


This is an invite-only event, and all Camp Soft Landing members and their guests are welcome! 

What to expect: 

  • Mixed reality interactive art
  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Raffles for very cool stuff
  • Music
  • Visual projections
  • HTC Vive
  • Surprises

Camp leaders offline starting Thursday, August 25

On Thursday, August 25, our last camp coordinator will be headed out to the playa. We won't be able to handle any more digital communication at this point. You can still pay dues online, but bring your order confirmation (just the email on your phone is fine) with you to the playa.
