What kind of program will there be at the Summit?
The Summit will address many issues and situations that women face in the workplace, especially in camp. With sessions and speakers on topics ranging from negotiations to building community to getting a handle on your calendar, there is something for every female camp pro out there. Best of all, this Summit has been designed to offer excellent networking opportunities with other female camp pros from all generations and levels within the camp industry. The full schedule and program will be posted soon. Check out the overview here, including information on our amazing keynote speakers!
I’m having trouble getting funding to attend. What are my options?
Payment isn’t due until two weeks prior to the Summit, so you can reserve your spot now without putting any money down. Additional financial assistance is available to those who need it; simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Remember to register early because space is extremely limited this year! Don’t forget to check out our Room & Ride Sharing Group on Facebook to see if you can lower your cost by catching a ride from your local area or sharing a shuttle from the airport.
When should I book my hotel room?
We encourage you to book your room as soon as possible because the special low rate of $94 is only good until October 1st or when the block is booked, whichever comes first. There are several other groups at the resort at the same time, so space is very limited. Also, we offer a
group on Facebook where you can scout for roommates to help bring down the cost! Book your room online here.
Do I have to stay at Pheasant Run?
Technically no, but we think you should for two main reasons:
How can I help?
