Gymnasium schedule at Burning Man 2015

Next week,  our theme camp Gymnasium will finally come to life at the much anticipated Burning Man festival. If you read this and plan to be there, I’m pretty sure you’ll want to visit our camp. Have a look at the schedule of our events, but keep in mind that we plan to do even more than we have announced – so stop by our camp at 7:30 Portal, and almost certainly during day time you’ll find something fun to do and learn… all in the buff!

I’ll also list naturist (and naturist-ish) events from other camps below after our schedule… and what is mind-boggling is that it’s all just a tiny fraction of all the “craziness” that Burning Man is!

  • Butt-Cheeky Run Come get your burn started – with the sun’s soft caresses on your butt cheeks! The Ancient Greeks always trained and competed naked – in fact the ’gym’ comes from the word ‘gymnos’, meaning ‘naked’ in Greek. Come experience the amazing freedom of running and jumping and exercising free of clothing! Or at least come and see what a great spectator sport it is 🙂 We’ll do a warm-up at the camp and then run wild in the ‘hood!
    • Monday, 31 Aug 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
  • Naked Philosophy Nudity has the power to surprise and shock, yet why, on reflection, can something as mundane as the naked body inspire simultaneously so much passion and revulsion? To be naked in 21st century western society demands intense self-examination, the questioning and reappraisal of conventional conventions and morality. In this sense, naturism, as the cultural and political movement of nudism is often known, is an inherently philosophical practice. And what better way to do philosophy than naked? We’re sure your college seminars would have been much more fun nude. Come and join us for lively discussions, debates and story-telling. We’ll be discussing naturism, body image, sharing experiences, debating body modification, if and how laws should be changed – really everything related to the human body.
    • Monday, 31 Aug 5:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
    • Sunday, 6 Sep 5:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
  • Discus-ish Throw in the dark… and in the buff Discus (well, LED-lit frisbee) throw competition followed by ultimate frisbee game (or regular frisbee, depending on the mood). Bare your body, but wear lights! The Ancient Greeks always trained and competed naked – in fact the ’gym’ comes from the word ‘gymnos’, meaning ‘naked’ in Greek. Come experience the amazing freedom of running and jumping and exercising free of clothing! Or at least come and see what a great spectator sport it is 🙂 This is our only night event, but don’t worry about cold – movement will keep you warm!
    • Wednesday, 2 Sep 8 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Naked Oil Wrestling Wrestling is one of the most fun sports you can ever try. It’s also one of humanity’s oldest and was among the major events of the original Olympics. Long before we were kicking balls around we were rolling around in the dirt, putting each other in headlocks! It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete novice who’s never tried it in your life or an experienced fighter, come along and experience this amazing bonding experience in Gymnasium, Black Rock City’s Ancient Greek wrestling school (7:30 Portal). We will start warming up and a workshop on wrestling basics at 10:30. This will be followed by competitions starting at 11:30. Participants will be provided showers at another camp.
    • Thursday, 3 Sep 10:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.
    • Friday, 4 Sep 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. – an additional match at another camp, location announced on the playa 😉
  • Naked Piggy-Back and Barrel-Run Race Bare with us for this fun athletic event! Bring your friends, but choose wisely, as you’ll have to bear them on your back, bareback… or vice versa. Great bonding experience guaranteed! The Ancient Greeks always trained and competed naked – in fact the ’gym’ comes from the word ‘gymnos’, meaning ‘naked’ in Greek. Come experience the amazing freedom of running and jumping and exercising free of clothing! Or at least come and see what a great spectator sport it is 🙂 PS In ancient Olympics this would have been an equestrian event, but BMORG wouldn’t let us bring horses…
    • Friday, 4 Sep 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
  •  (Touch) Rugby in the Buff Rugby is a rough game, but it’s not only for buff dudes – just no touchy-feely please, even though it’s a touch rugby we’ll play. Join us if you please! Why naked? For a great bonding experience, plus it’s hot on the playa… and your costume would be destroyed in the game otherwise! The Ancient Greeks always trained and competed naked – in fact the ’gym’ comes from the word ‘gymnos’, meaning ‘naked’ in Greek. Come experience the amazing freedom of running and jumping and exercising free of clothing! Or at least come and see what a great spectator sport it is 🙂 Come to the playa around 7:30 Portal and look out for bouncing balls!
    • Saturday, 5 Sep 4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

And here is the list of other events close to our theme:

Volleyball Fun At Sin City Volleyball Rec Center; daily; doesn’t say that it’s naked, but it’s the same camp that hosts “Tiki – Party Naked” bar
Wear Only A Smile Yoga; Tue afternoon
Naked Counseling; Tue 4:30pm
Naked skate session; Sat noon-2pm

Hope to see many of you there!
