Recycle Camp
Showing Black Rock citizens the way to reducing waste on the Playa. Leave all unnecessary packaging at home, reduce what you bring to the playa, leave sorry ass glass at home, choose something that you can actually leave behind on the playa. Choose aluminum when buying your beverages. That's right, we will take all of your aluminum cans and donate them to the Gerlach School and you don't have to carry them home with you. We will be by early in the week to visit & remind each and ever one of you and pick up anything you have and then remember to bring us the rest of your cans before you leave. Don't wait till the last minute though cause we only accept cans through Sunday after the Burn until 5pm. Tell your friends and neighbors about us when they offer you a beverage. Please help us help the Gerlach School and seperate your trash in your camp and make sure to show us your CANS!!!

Roarshack
The Roarshack is a product of postmodern medicine, filled with art connoisseurs and medical fetishists who just want to help you find your inner child and, if possible, surgically excise it. Specialists in neurobotany, art therapy, hoop therapy, op art, pop art, pop tarts, invasive brain surgery, recreational psychiatry, ritual bloodlettings, and jello shots, the Roarshack promises miracles and even, occasionally, delivers.

Visit us and discover the healing powers of mankind's greatest creations, art and alcohol. Behold the Perpetual Art Opening, walls and pedestals covered in the best and worst of art from around the playa (we don't judge, at least not to your face) lined up along the roadside for your patronage, perusal, and pity. Exercise your darkest demons with the help of our skilled quack doctors/docents, who will happily pour you chilled white wine out of a box into little plastic cups — the greatest medicine of all.

Rock n' Roll Positions
The Rock n' Roll Positions camp's mission is simple: We want to have a place for people to stick it to the man the best way we know how. The Rockapalypse is at hand and we wish to facilitate people's needs to, as it were, rock out. There are various ways that one can, as we say, rock out. First, they can adopt a "Rock n' Roll Position." A Rock n' Roll position is a pose, held for any amount of time which expresses what that person feels is their Rock n' Roll persona, e.g. air guitar or air triangle. Polaroid cameras will be available for people to immortalize their own particular Rock n' Roll position and to display in the cam p for others to observe and take inspiration from. Secondly, truly rocking out requires a certain ability to deviate from what "The Man" has ordained as "proper" behaviour. As such, tequila will be provided to lubricate one's true Rock n' Roll desires. There may also be string-can telephones.

In other words, people can come by, have some tequila, see goofy pictures of other burners posing and then themselves strike and photograph any pose they want.

ROOT SOCIETY
The Root of all... all things above and below.
Above is hope. Below is fear.
Above temptation. Below the belt. The love below...
The root of all evil? Maybe!
But you want it. Your mind wanders... the mystery draws you in. Your mind imagines... dreams of its power.
The contrast of the extremes. We hope for new experiences.
We fear the below we can not see.
The way people and energy move through space.
Keeping score of the activity... away from the natural balance.
The Root Society!

Rotten Island
This year Rotten Island will be bringing you Revenge of the Red Line (on trikes) a twenty-four foot tower to play on, a comfortable spot to park it and share a drink and fire breathing lesions, sooth your pedal extremities in a bath from our Playa Podiatrist. We have a large collection of music and we are always open to requests. Burning Man has a unique meaning to every single person out on the playa. Why people continue to come back is something that is important to each and every one of us maybe it is simple as; it is a lot of fun, or we come for the art, either to absorb it or create it. The playa is filled with cathartic moments that whisper to us and sometimes knock us right off our asses. Rotten Island is a group of close friends who have been part of the playa for a long time now. Our little group has a wide range of outlooks upon life and The Man. We welcome all to our camp. We wish to give and receive experience as one little group who helps make up the entirety of what is Burning Man.
