Making the Playa Great Again

Camp Remote Control is energy efficient, radically accepting, and dedicated to leaving Black Rock City better than we found it without sacrificing one tiny bit of fun.

Energy Neutral

We are completely powered by the hot desert sun, not noisy, smelly genertors. Solar panels charge batteries that power our lights, music, shower, toys, and everything else.

Remotes Are Us

Our camp is decorated with discarded TV and game remotes of all kinds. We incorporate them into art projects and cool items. (If you have any extras laying around, contact us. We can put them to good use.)


We are committed to Leaving No Trace and helping others do the same. We give out handcrafted MOOP bags made from fabric scraps and recycled clothing. Return yours and we will empty it , applaud you, and offer a fabulous prize.

Radically Inclusive

Anyone is welcome to drop by to visit, unwind, help out, join the party, decorate your bike, share a meal, dress up (or dress down and make even more friends), sing, dance, be yourself, chill, and feel safe.


We are a group of fun-loving, artsy, craftsy, geeky guys—both virgins and veterans—who have banded together to bring our unique vision to Black Rock City. We are about repurposing, remaking, reworking, recycling, and rethinking. We remake old clothes and scraps into MOOP bags. We rework discarded TV remotes into decorations, lamps, art, and objects of wonder and affection. Visit us and we'll show you how we do it. You're welcome to cuddle up to a remote and relax with us.

Come by the camp to get your own handcrafted fabric bag. Fill it up with MOOP found on the streets and the Playa and return it to thunderous applause and choose a fabulous prize.
