We have everything set up with Camp Monte Toyon at Aptos, but we still have a lot of decisions to make. Aptos is just outside Santa Cruz, so it's a 5-hour drive for me instead of three. I haven't seen Monte Toyon, but I understand it's an absolutely beautiful camp set in the redwoods. The buildings are close together, so we will not have a camp bus this year. The chapel is not completely accessible, but we think people should not have any trouble getting to other buildings.
Registration has reopened, but space is limited. As of this morning, there were only 46 spaces left. We could not continue the "early bird" registration discount because Camp Monte Toyon charges us more than Camp Newman did. The rate for 6 days of camp is $510. There is some campership money available for those who cannot afford the full fee.

I'm not ready to post the schedule grids for workshops yet. We're having a camp committee meeting on Monday, and I'm hoping we will be able to decide about workshop times and venues then. If you'd like to lead a workshop, please post your requests now, and I'll put them on the schedule once I get a working schedule set up. Please post your first and last name, name of the workshop (no more than FOUR words), description of the workshop, and the day and time of day you'd like. Workshops will be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - from about 9 AM to 6 PM, give or take an hour.
For now, all requests for workshops will be accommodated. I'll let you know in this thread when things get tight and some workshop times will be limited. But for now, we have lots of times and lots of spaces. I'll update this message early next week after our meeting, when I know more about workshop times and spaces.
See you at camp.
