2010 THEME CAMPS & VILLAGES
This is the list of Theme Camps requesting placement in Black Rock City's reserved sections for 2010, who chose to be listed publicly. This is not a list of officially accepted or placed theme camps, it's a preview of what you'll find when you get to Black Rock City. Some settling of contents may occur when the City Planners allocate the space. To find camps not included on the BRC Map, look through the Playa Info Directory in Center Camp. To find camps that chose not to be listed, you'll just have to get lucky.
This is a camp for people to come at anytime and play games. There will be board games, card games, Role Play Games, LARP games, and everything that a gamer nerd dork would want. So come on over day or night, pull up a chair, and meet some new friends!
