1. We didn't get placed last year. Why?
Many factors contribute to the placement of a theme camp, including but not limited to: your camp's interactivity statement, prior year's MOOP rating, follow-through of previous years' plans, participant feedback about your camp, and the needs of the city. It could also be that the above factors put your camp lower on the list of camps to be placed and we hit our maximum amount of placed camps when we reached yours.
2. Camp ____ was a really good (or bad) neighbor last year. What can I do about that?
We welcome any and all feedback about camps, whether it's good, bad, or ugly. This info is taken into account (among many other factors) when we gather as a team to determine placement for the year. Please send your honest assessments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also be on the lookout for the Neighborhood and Interactivity Feedback form for all who camped in Black Rock City and the Post-playa Report sent to the camp lead for all placed camps. Both of these forms open in September and close in October.
3. Post-playa Report (PPR)
As mentioned in Introducing a More Dynamic and Transparent Placement Process for 2022 and 2022 Placement Newsletter #9, we are introducing the “Post-playa Report” for you to tell us how this Burn went for you as a placed camp. What went well? What didn’t? How did everyone cope with that dust storm? How might you improve things in your camp and how can Placement support you? We need your and your camp’s feedback to make sense of what happened on the playa this year.
This is the final piece of the puzzle we’ll use to decide your camp’s standing based on Placement’s Criteria to Be in Good Standing. We want to get a holistic picture of your camp and hear directly from you. In addition to the Post-playa Report, we also review feedback from other Burning Man departments, Placement’s Neighborhood & Interactivity Feedback form, Placement and PEERS notes from on and off-playa, and MOOP and Leave No Trace reports from Playa Restoration.
4. Is this a required form and who has to fill it out?
Completion of this form is required to be eligible for future Stewards Sale tickets and future placement for returning camps.
- The PPR should be filled out by the Camp Lead or Village Mayor for all placed camp types: theme camp, village, camp within a village, mutant vehicle, art, & work support.
- Each Camp within a Village should also fill out a PPR. The Village Mayor fills out a form for the village as a community, and the lead for each camp within a village should fill out for their individual camps.
- We are looking for one PPR per camp, village, and camp within a village.
If you are no longer the current camp lead/village mayor, please write to email@example.com and let us know who your new camp lead/village mayor is. Be sure to cc them on the email for them to confirm, and we can update our records from there.
