Reverbia practices the 10 Principles of Burning Man and is a camp of diversity across the spectra of age, culture, race, gender, and more. Respect is our underlying philosophy, and we seek individuals who are kindred spirits in teamwork, unity, balance, green thinking, and the enjoyment of live music. We're also huge fans of everyone who can keep a positive mental attitude when dust is found in places never thought possible!
2019 Team Leads (in no particular order)
Successful Theme Camps at Burning Man require a massive amount of organization... Reverbia would not be possible without the tireless efforts of our extensive Leadership Team. In form with The Burning Man 10 Principles, our Leadership team is Volunteer based, gifting their time from Spring through September in order to bring the magic of Reverbia to life, year after year. Our Leadership Mantra is to "Lead by Example" as we hold ourselves in the highest accountability to "Practice what we Teach". Reverbia Leadership Character expectations are: Patience in a Harsh Environment, Mentoring, Tolerance, Respect, Kindness, and an ability to strangely laugh during adversity. Support your Camp Leadership at Reverbia with the same character... along with hugs and encouraging words, which are always welcomed. It takes quality Leadership to raise a quality Community!!!
