An evening with Theme Camps who are looking to network and build resources and teams to participate. While it is the simmering time of the season, many camps and projects are starting their work plans and are looking for people to fill in. Maybe you just want to help pre-playa, maybe you want to join a group and build a solid relationship early on? This is the night to start all that.
Participants and Theme Camps and Projects get a boost in this meet & greet to help fill roles early.
Theme Camps who wish to participate please sign up on this Google Form and answer those questions so we have a basis to share with participants. Everyone will get a summary of those answers and a way to follow up with you.
