2006 THEME CAMPS & VILLAGES
Ka Pilina camp
Kama'aina have no better home on the playa than at the Ka Pilina camp, the official Hawaii Regional embassy. Meet other Hawaii burners and learn about the many events and the growing community in the islands. One of the camp's goals is to bring to the playa a taste of Hawaiian culture expressed through art and performance. Our biggest event of the week will be our 4th annual gathering of "kama'aina on the playa" luau on Friday 6-10 PM. Stop on by if you want to connect with Hawaii burners and learn all about the Ka Pilina Interactive Arts Society, and to get a glimpse of the crazy events going on in Hawaii all year long.

You stand poised at a tipping point. A charged instant propels you through the portal of change. Action follows a flash of insight. A moment of truth moves you to seize the opportunity. You swing on the hinge of Fate, moving beyond the point of no return. You drive, with the force of clarity, into the Future. Since the age of Socrates, Man has called that climactic, defining moment "KAIROS"
We provide the Big Bar forum, the audience, the Stage, the Pole, the inspiration, and the tools for you to achieve KAIROS. You jump on!.
Our doctors and nurses will help you into the proper state. Dance. Drink. Speak. Bare your mind and your body. Post your Hopes and Fears, dreams and fantasies on our walls. Acknowledge your "biggest dreams" then start to realize them. Our photographers will ensure that a small piece of you stays in this moment.
Return to this moment and to our camp during your time in this desert. Exalt with us in change as together we experience KAIROS.

There's no need to muster hot and bothered in the relentless heat of a dreadful August sun! Be it a scorching afternoon or a bitter, wind-stormy day, escape to KATHANIKA and enjoy Storytime Shisha: savory flavoured tobaccos while listening to (and reciting) fearsome, firey narrations on all sorts of topics!
Think you're too tall to tell a tale? Nonsense! We're building a stilts-only bar for tall-walking tower-high visitors.

Bubbling up from the NYC underground, Kostume Kult is an artistic party crew like none other. Inside the costume dome we offer up costuming and body art while sweet DJ's massage the vibe in our chill lounge/performance area. Early in the week we seek to trade but, by the burn, everything must go! During the days, our dome is open to all and, by night, the Kostume Kultists parade the playa in style! Themed "Carousel", this year we embrace hope, ascension and a sci-future aesthetic. Our Thursday/midnight costume party is always insane and there will be fashion shows, hooping lessons and random theatrics going on all week. Please stop by if you love costuming and comfortable vibes. You are one of us :)

Ku De Ta
Ku De Ta is built on the shifting desert sands between hope and fear. Revolution takes many forms. And this one, this is ours. It's our time to rise up, impact our community, to make our stand. We're a fortified rebel compound comprised of refugees from Opulent Temple, Space Cowboys, Disorient, Flaming Lotus Girls, Burners Without Borders/Camp Katrina, and Gigsville. And we're coming at ya, loud, proud, unafraid. Are you ready? Better yet, are you worthy? Are you!?!?
Approach our gates and find out. Maybe – just maybe – you'll join the rebellion and reap the rewards: ambrosia and honey, manna from the heavens, all rolling together as one. That is, IF you are allowed to enter. Do you have what it takes? Can you see with the right kind of eyes and glimpse the new dawn, just beyond the horizon? Does glory await you? Are you one of us?
Because we see what's going down and we're ready. Without eternal vigilance, it can happen here. Power to the freaky people!
