What is best way to return to DGS after taking 2 yrs off?

Hi all, Camp DOA would like to return but returning is almost impossible if our critical crew members cannot get a ticket. What is the best way to get back on the DGS list if we were not on playa last year? We are a camp in good standing and highly participate. Thanks. :D

Put in your request like any other camp. You can list what you did in previous years even if your camp hasn't attended in the immediate past for some time. You'll also need to provide info on what you're planning on doing this year as well.

So what was the last year you participated as a camp? The following year did you receive DGS tickets and just 'go' as individuals? Contact placement and ask your question. I bet it's not the first time they've been asked.

Definitely email Placement telling them what your plans are and ask to be put back on the placement email list. It might be appropriate to tell them who the primary leader is and who the backup leader is if the primary is not available.
