2021 Not Burning Man, Camp, News, Placement, Planning

Adventure camping! Come find us in the desert *Aug 29 – Sep 4, 2021* – “Plan B” – UPDATED estimated coordinates: 40.8109897, -119.1840921 – integrates.workshops.important

We’re bringing a minimal version of the Healing Foot Wash camp to the Black Rock Desert this year, from ~August 29 – September 4, 2021.  Since there is no official Placement process this year, we’ve “placed” ourselves, and will see how it goes once we get there.

Approximate Estimated Location: ~ 7:45 and D (on this year’s grid, remember, most likely limited or no street signs).
~About one camp south of Burners With Kids camp (~100 families with kids).

This is our target initial rendezvous point, as of tonight’s planning call, subject to change, but we’ll try to update final coordinates once we’ve established base camp.

We’re planning on bringing 6 sitting chairs, 100 gallons of water, all our usual foot washing supplies!

See you there?!?

2019 Healing Foot Wash Burning Man theme camp plan

Once again we are very grateful to the Burning Man Placement team for including us as a placed theme camp. We’ve now washed thousands of feet at Burning Man, and are looking forward to another great year.

Of special note this year — we’re planning to offer an after hours self-service foot wash station that will allow participants to use our setup in a limited way during evening hours when the main Healing Foot Wash camp / experience is closed. Hopefully we’ll see you out there!

Gabriel’s 2016 Healing Foot Wash Burning Man Theme Camp photos

This was our 4th year bringing the Healing Foot Wash camp to Burning Man. We had a great team this year and welcomed an estimated 1400-1800 people to our camp to participate in foot washing. Once again, people were moved and touched to be offered both the gift of having their own feet washed as well as the option to give that same gift to another visiting person. We were fully packed during our open hours from 9:30am – 5:00pm, Monday through the Saturday morning before the Burn. Thanks again to everyone who participated!

These are Gabriel’s photos from this year’s camp.

Healing Foot Wash camp at Burning Man 2015

Some more pictures from our time at Burning Man 2015. Over a thousand people had their feet washed and also had the opportunity to give the gift of washing feet at Burning Man this year. A lot of work and a great success!

Arrived to 40-50 MPH windstorms, setting up our Burning Man theme camp

We finally arrived and were warned at Greeters that there were 40-50 MPH wind storm gusts predicted for that evening, so batten everything down that we didn’t want to blow away. We would have multiple white-out windstorms over the next couple of setup days but made the best of it and had a great time getting everything setup for our Healing Foot Wash camp.

From Reno to Black Rock City, on our way!

We finally made it to the playa and then proceeded to wait in line (even though we’re Early Arrival there are still thousands of folks also waiting to get in even though it’s 2 days before public entry).
