The first part of your address is your frontage. The second part helps you figure out what cross street you are close to. Sometimes we will use a :15 or a :45 even when there isn’t such a street to let you know you are in the middle of a block.
If your address is C & 3:45 then the front of your camp will be on C and you are in between 3:30 and 4:00. If your address is 3:00 & C, then you know your frontage is on 3:00 Avenue and your closest cross street is C. This address lets you know you are on or near a corner. Camps with a + in their address are an odd shape (meaning not a square or rectangle).
Camps with frontage on Center Camp Plaza or Rod's Road: your address will include an “@“ symbol rather than an “&”. This is to let you know where on the plaza you are located as if the plaza was an analog time piece with 12:00 pointing towards the man. Your address might be 6:00 plaza @ 3:00. If you stand in the centre of the plaza, face the man and think about where the 3:00 hour hand would point; this is your approximate location.
Please be advised that all addresses are approximate and could change up until you are placed on playa. It is essential you meet with your placers on playa to be shown to your final location. You are not to place yourselves in case your camp has been moved.
