Summer 2017 Dates & FAQ's

It's that time of the year again when we get excited about camp! I cannot begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to this year's camp but at the same time I am scared a little.

Now to the fun part, changes, info and faq's

Q. How many spots will be available?
A. At this time there are only 130 camper spots only.  This year there will be only 1 sim which allows us to have only 100 avatars so 130 plus volunteers is already cutting close. I will do everything I can to try to get a second sim and open more spots but at this time this is all I can commit to. 

Q. I can't be online for sign ups, can someone else sign me up?
A. Yes, however due to people abusing this last year the biggest change this year is that sign ups will be limited to one per avatar. This means that you can only sign yourself up or sign up a friend but not both. A parent or friend can sign you up but they will also be limited to one person so if you have siblings then they will need another parent or friend to sign them up.

Q. Why the limitation to the number of people we can sign up?
A. We tried to be very lenient in the past to ensure that as many people who want to attend camp can do so. Unfortunately because we are a FREE camp our kindness is sometimes abused and the few who did ruined it for the rest. Basically we had some people sign up multiple "friends" last year, we even had someone sign up 15 people who ended up not even going to camp. As space is very limited, it is very unfair for those who truly want to attend to not be able to acquire a spot because someone signed up a friend who is not even sure they want to go, people then get put on a wait list and end up missing the first day of camp because of those who signed up and didn't even go. I prefer that those who sign up are people who actually and truly want to be there. 

Q. I see this year the theme is Star Wars. I don't know anything about Star Wars so this camp isn't for me?
A. You don't need to be a Star Wars fan or even know a thing about Star Wars. The only story you need to know is the short one on our theme reveal video. Role play your way and make the story your own. As always there will also be other non theme camp things to do, fun events and everything so there will be plenty for you to have fun with.

Q. Will I need to wear Star Wars attire and a lightsaber?
A. No you won't. Although there are some star wars outfits out there for kids and I will see about getting those creators to place a vendor at camp you will not be required to wear any specific type of attire. You will be building your own lightsaber after completing quests and acquiring necessary materials during camp, no outside lightsabers will be allowed.

Q. I have more questions that were not answered, where can I go for more information?
A. Feel free to contact me Landon Edenbaum inworld or George Orellana on facebook. I am always happy to answer any questions. There will be more questions and answers added to this list if there are any.

See you all this summer!
