Who are the Mystics?

Camp Mystic has a 20 year history as a theme camp at burning man. We are a medley of creative talent & energy. Inspired by a sense of mystery & wonder, we perceive the consciousness of "We Are All One". Mystics encourage the enigmatic spirit to explore a deeper connection not only on this planet and all that exists within, but the realm of the entire Universe. Camp Mystic is an ongoing experiment in the power of friendship, love, artistic expression, commitment, and exploration into the farthest reaches of human development and beyond. Celebration and the pursuit of happiness with meaning is what has maintained this community year after year as it grows in both numbers and potential for greatness.

Camp Mystic are a plethora of extraordinary thought leaders, authors, speakers, entrepreneurs, teachers, aritsts, musicians, and healers.  We are all about ecstatic participation, contribution, and intimate connection.   Learn More>

What are our Values?


We as a community are bound by these values:

  • We like to make things happen by setting a clear intention and then surrendering to the moment.
  • We look to enhance every environment we are in and leave it better than we found it. The way art does that, the way science does that, the way human interaction does that, and our dedication to leaving no trace.
  • We have a profound curiosity about what empowers people and allows them to be greater.
  • We celebrate beauty and creative expression in all forms.
  • We look for and welcome opportunities to stretch our boundaries and push our edges.
  • And…love is present in everything we do.
