The Beavers About the Camp Beaverton
“A documentary film about Camp Beaverton, an experimental community camp for self described “Wayward Girls” at Burning Man 2012. Burning Man is a unique experiential art festival that lasts 8 days in the Black Rock desert in northern Nevada. It creates a temporary city that is home to almost 60,000 people who live within the 10 principles that makes Burning Man’s collective philosophy. Camp Beaverton is the only women only, trans-inclusive, sex positive camp at Burning Man. They teach workshops on safe sex, sexual techniques and good communication skills. They also host various events and play parties such as the infamous strap-on-athon, possibly the largest women only, trans inclusive sex play party on the planet. They are a family on and off the playa, and offer a safe space for women to explore their desires, boundaries and realize their fantasies.”
