Re: Only second burn - how can I find a camp with RV hookups

I'm always curious when someone's first post is asking for something- particularly when looking for a pay-for-service- and then you never hear from them again. How is 8 posts in this thread never being heard from again? 8 posts is a third of what I've managed in 3 years- if she sticks around, she'l...

Re: Give your virgin self ONE piece of advice...

Don't be so determined to prove your work ethic to your camp that you exhaust yourself under the sun and render yourself completely useless. Take breaks when you need them and remember that anyone giving you attitude for resting probably needs to drink more water themselves.

Re: Low income debate

The idea that the low income program is a tax, I assume is suggesting ticket prices would be lower without it. Threads on the ticket price have hammered upon us that the business can set their ticket price at whatever the market demands. It's just as not up to us where they spend their money. And it...

so, it's 12°C here today in Toronto Canada. (that's 56.3 Farenheights), seems non-winters here are becoming the new normal.

Re: Burner Profiles?

Our theme camp leadership changes hands every year- including the person who writes the application, and w/w/w listings for the cafe stage so it would be nice if each camp member could access the theme camp information for future reference. I imagine that will not be the case though.

Re: Anecdotal stuff

People can't get rid of their tickets in Toronto.

Re: Getting carded on the playa

Our camp got dinged one year, though the charge was dropped after the burn. We're pretty serious of ID-ing everyone who looks young, and the person who serves an underager will be personally responsible for the fine incurred (rather than the camp) which gives us all plenty of motivation to cover our...
