Welcome adventurers, curious strangers, and heart full friends.
Serendipitea is the gathering of people with similar core beliefs of what the playa brings, and what we should bring to the playa. The Ten Principles is what drives us but the tribe is what binds us. We seek people willing to give as much as they receive, who’ve left the ego at home, and bring their most creative energies into the dust.
Every member of Serendipitea’s intention is to invest in new relationships and build new connections within our tribe and the playa as a whole. The magic of our family begins with you. Participation is a key, mandatory and fun part of being in our camp. We understand the playa is the place to play, but equally so we realise its a place to heal, reflect and connect. Serendipitea is not just a play camp, if you want to party 24/7 this is not your place. For all the rest, an unexpected adventure awaits.
Below is a summary of what we provide:
Interactivity - Starting the day with heart opening workshops & activities for self exploration, transformation & life integration, we often end the day with revelry and our incredible celebrations.
Food - Our body is our temple and we fuel it with high quality nutritious meals with vegetarian and vegan options. Led by our house chef, a family cooked dinner is served every night at 8pm and ingredients for breakfast are available in the mornings for self-serving.
Tea - all the World’s Teas available daily for you to nourish your vessel with the medicine of your choice.
Gifting - Our herbal elixir & tea bar (alcoholic options available) is open daily and our events are always supplied with healthy, energy-boosting treats from our raw food kitchen.
Big Events - Circus opening party, our famous Mad Hatter Tea Party, Healing day, Tribal day
Accommodation support - Shift Pod village with communal lounge area & meditation temple
Showers - we have 3 camp showers for you to dust off
Electricity - Camp Generator for RVs & Shift pods
Toilets - We have 3 communal toilets
** You must bring your own drinking water and please also support our bar by Gifting a Few Bottles of Spirits and a few large bottles of mixer.**
Total investment: Camp fee + accommodation fee + deposit
Family discount - If you have camped with us before you receive a 20% discount.
The camp fee is $1200 per person. This covers the cost of breakfast and dinner, kitchen, shower, toilets, and communal spaces and supports the our budget to create an amazingly interactive communal area.
Participation, Communal Effort and Leave No Trace are 3 of the 10 core principles at Burning Man and also at Serendipitea. To reinforce their importance and make sure our campers live by these principles we have implemented a refundable $250 incentive deposit; to maximise involvement during the week; to ensure that you carry trash home; and to promote participation in packing away the camp at the end of the week - basically, doing your part. For breakdown we aim to be done by Sunday dusk!
As a quick caveat to this, although we're implementing this incentive deposit it doesn't mean you can just pay it and not do any of the above ;)... not supporting the camp will mark heavily against being invited back for future burns.
We're strong believers in sustainable accommodation, this is why we get involved to support the setup of our Shift Pod Village.
This year we're making some major upgrades to the Village, most notably additional shade structures - a centre shade and chillout area for the Village guests, as well as cover for the Shift pods.
What's more is that each shift pod will come with AC and power. We recommend purchasing Airbeds, Sheets, a lamp, a rug and decorations. For the RV's we provide power & one greywater pump-out.
Shift Pod w/AC - $1200 per pod (e.g. If 2 people = $600p/p)
We provide you with one of our shift pods.
RV - $1200 per RV (e.g. If 4 people = $300p/p)
You have to bring your own RV. The fee is to pay for having your RV on our camp area.
If you are planning to apply to Serendipitea with friends, the maximum group size is 5 people.
Deadline to apply is May 26th. Payments must be made by June 15th to confirm your spot!
