What is KidsVille?
KidsVille will be a village within Black Rock City. Our camp has grown tremendously from earlier years and in response to that growth, has now declared itself a Village. Despite its growth, KidsVille remains committed to providing a community for all families and their friends. In 2000, we had over 30 families and over 40 children ranging in age from 8 months to 18 years. We have had families come from around the world, and from all walks of life. In fact, the only thing we share in common is that we all believe that Burning Man is a wonderful family experience.
What KidsVille Isn't...
Were not a baby sitting service. Nor are we a place for lame parents to dump their kids while they go party.
Where will KidsVille be located?
That won't be known until the Burning Man Org places all villages and theme camps. Don't count on knowing this until late spring or early summer. check out burning man with google earth
Will there be a community kitchen?
No, all camps within KidsVille will operate autonomously. However there is some discussion regarding a community kitchen and the addition of the highly successful pot lucks of last year.
Can I reserve a certain spot within KidsVille?
Yes, in fact, preregistration is now required, since our village has grown so large. In order to register, you must first join our yahoo group at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KidsCamp/ and announce yourself. Next you'll register your camp and place it on the map at our new registration web site: KidsVille.org. If you do not register and just show up, it is very likely we will not be able to accommodate you.
What are the rules?
KidsVille values individuality and self-reliance. We do not have any specific rules nor do we have any organized childcare, meal plan, etc. Each family is ultimately responsible for its own needs. However, we are our own community within Burning Man and as such, we each strive to help our fellow families and look out for all of our campers' health and safety.
