The Lost Penguin Cafe reflects burning man culture but we have also developed some guidelines that are unique to camp.

Hospitality camps are unique because we are all there to entertain and serve the participants of BM - everyone on the Playa is our guest, whether they be a friend or stranger.

Our gift to the Playa involves all of us working (and living) together.

We are one of the longest standing theme camps at Burning Man. Our experience in running the cafe and cohabitating in the intensity of the festival itself has helped us survive and evolve in a kick-ass community!

The Berg Guide covers most of the things you should know about being at Burning Man, a hospitality theme camp, and mainly specific stuff you should know about being a Penguin!
