Camp Burning Bear is comprised of a small group fun loving burners from the Harrisburg Pennsylvania area. Burning bears started as a private burn to celebrate the Legend of the Burning Bear. Burning Bear celebrates the end of summer and beginning of the Fall Harvest held each Labor Day weekend on the Armenia Mountain in Northern Pennsylvania. The Burning Bear brings the Montana to the Playa. Each year Camp Burning Bear plans activities that can be enjoyed by all on the Playa. Choosing a different country that we have traveled, we bring food and fun that represents the theme of that country.

Serious Doubt and the Art of Reason
Serious Doubt and the Art of Reason is phase two of an experiment to make accessible to all, the magnificent beauty that is mathematics. During the first phase, which took place at Transformus '12, we rejoiced at the interconnections of everything in the universe. In phase two, we will take our observations out of the arm chair bring them to the art studio, music hall and cinema. For Fall PDF the unifying theme of Serious Doubt and the Art of Reason - Phase Two will be the Platonic Solids (i.e. the 5 Dungeons and Dragons dice). Our beautiful shade structure is a gigantic Icosahedron, and we will be building and painting (with the help of anyone who has the desire) beach ball sized solids (also, our house artists will come with several complete objet d'art). Present will be a play table, stacked with puzzles and kits for constructing geometric shapes. We will be playing music and movies of math and science themes. And will continue our series of serious talks and discussions.
