Camp Alborz


Welcome to Camp Alborz, an extraordinary tribe of wanderers, visionaries, and adventurers hailing from every corner of the world! We're a tight-knit family, united by our passion for embracing both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Our journeys take us far and wide, yet we always find solace and joy in coming together to welcome both old and new friends to our radiant abode: Black Rock City, the heart and soul of our collective spirit.

In this enchanting oasis, nestled amidst the vast expanse of the desert, our camp becomes a haven of creative expression and shared experiences. As we weave the tapestry of friendship, we revel in the joy of hosting fellow travelers who are drawn to the allure of our vibrant home. Together, we craft unforgettable memories and embark on awe-inspiring adventures that transcend borders and cultures.

While many of us reside far from the lands of our ancestors, we strive to illuminate the world with the brilliance of our cultural heritage. From the pulsating rhythms of distant lands to the tantalizing aromas of traditional delicacies, we seize every opportunity to showcase the very best of our diverse backgrounds. Through this vibrant tapestry of traditions, we bridge the gap between past and present, breathing life into ancient customs and infusing them with a modern twist.

Camp Alborz is more than just a gathering; it's an extraordinary amalgamation of dreams, aspirations, and a deep appreciation for the rich tapestry of humanity. It's a place where friendships are forged, where cultural boundaries dissolve, and where the universal language of love and celebration unites us all. So come, join us under the boundless sky of Black Rock City, and together, let's create an experience that will transcend time and leave an indelible mark on our souls.

"Coleman Barks, a renowned translator of Rumi's works, has beautifully captured the essence of Camp Alborz with the following Rumi quote:

'Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense.'"

This Rumi quote speaks to the spirit of Camp Alborz, where differences and divisions dissolve, and a profound sense of unity and connection emerges. In that sacred space, where judgments and labels lose their power, our souls come alive, and we experience the profound beauty of simply being together. It's a reminder that when we transcend the constraints of language and societal constructs, we discover a boundless field of love and understanding, where we can truly meet one another in the purest essence of our shared humanity.
