About

SK8 KAMP has a moop free vision for 2017!

 Let's make a modular skate park design which can be our legacy piece called the SK8 KASTLE. We can use it over the years and rely on it's moop-free design to make set-up and tear-down as simple as possible. In the past we have made our ramps out of lots of wood. It made for a very moopy situation on the playa when it's time to pack up and leave home. This new design was only made better with the use of FIRE coping!! Bringing all of this new design and fire to SK8 KAMP meant we need to ramp-up our fundraising! Our fundraising efforts in 2016 went pretty well. We ended up raising $12,500 in camp dues. Our Kickstarter in 2016 raised over $6,000. We just about hit our goals for fundraising, however we are ALMOST breaking even every year. About half of our donations from our Kickstarter typically goes to transportation. In 2016 we used the same guy for trucking that we have in the past. We were close to last in his schedule, so we were also placed in the same order for pickup. This means that however long, no matter what the setbacks were for other camps, we would not be able to pack up SK8 KAMP until he shows up on the playa. We had performed all of the LNT we could and used our Greydall to organize our gear until we heard from our driver. His estimation for Monday pickup left us hanging on until our last man standing was told he had to leave the playa Thursday after exodus. We still had some moop under our gear and skate park! We left the playa in 2016 with a hunger for complete self reliance. Time to go green on the moop map and get our own trailer! We purchased a new 8' wide 24' long flat twin axle bumper-pull trailer for $6,000. We had to have it de-rated so it could be hauled by anyone with a driver's license. The plan for our green year on the moop map is getting closer to reality!

Our 2017 Kickstarter the goal is to raise $7,000 in donations. This will help us transport our SK8 KASTLE, SK8 BAR, flat section/beginners skate park, and gear to the playa. We have a variety of rewards for generous donations of all ranges. Hillbilly will be able to give two private rides (scheduled) on SK8 KAMP's own art car Kokomotive on playa, T will be able to give ten dope-ass mohawk haircuts on playa, Kyle will give up two bushy eyebrows, Ollie is donating a custom skateboard display rack, SK8 KAMP hoodies, SK8 KAMP skateboards, custom hand-painted SK8 KAMP decks, SK8 KAMP t-shirts, and SK8 KAMP skateboarding lessons with the lesson/instructor of your choice. The rewards can be picked up on playa during Burning Man.

Risks and challenges

Our main concerns are keep the Playa moop free, as well as getting everyone and everything thing to the camp safely and on time. This will ensure the best experience for everyone involved and keep our home of Black Rock and the planet as clean as when we arrived. WE ONLY LEAVE BEHIND GOOD MEMORIES!

ALL REWARDS can be picked up on the playa during the event. If you are unable to make it to burning man this year and still want to get a reward for your donation, please contact us. We will work with you to get you some shwag.
