The $485 registration fee includes three breakfasts, two lunches, refreshment breaks, receptions, and materials from Wednesday- Saturday.

Housing information

All reservation requests must be made through Convention Housing Management (CHM) and their housing website. CHM is the official Camp housing coordinator. Housing for Camp will only be available to registered attendees.
