Camp Daily Plan
We have a daily plan with some scheduled workshops and activities, but will have some other workshops and skillshares based on our offer for participants to run their own small group sessions, and some surprise sessions depending who joins us at camp. We also encourage you to shape the event by telling us what you would like to do and learn when you register!
We will regularly update this page and share updates about guests, facilitators, and partners as we shape the event based on our campers choices. Follow us on Instagram, and check back on this page regularly.
Most importantly: every session is optional! Make your own small gathering and choose your own topics, participate in EVERYTHING, or pick and choose what sounds relevant to your life/work/goals.
