Autostraddle is Hosting A-Camp This Spring:
April 26 - 29th, 2012 // San Bernadino Mountains, CA


The first-ever A Camp Weekend is this April 26th -- 29th in the San Bernadino Mountains. Plans include kickass fun, singing at a campfire, basketball, some kind of writing situation brilliance, invigorating panels, DJ Carlytron, arts & crafts, Harto and Julie Goldman. If you'd like to take a morning jog with Sarah Croce, bring sneakers. 

Come shape the future with us!

Check back to this website periodically for updates!



If you're driving to camp, you can show up at any time on Thursday late morning/afternoon, we'll have stuff to do all afternoon. We'll be having dinner and opening ceremonies starting at 6pm, so please try to get there by then! If you come too late at night you will miss lots of fun things. #justsayin.



Hey y'all -- just wanted to re-state that registration is closed -- the camp has been paid, arrangements have been made, and that means it's too late for anyone to get in off the waitlist or to cancel and get a refund (scroll down for our refund policy -- after April 10th we can no longer give any kind of refund as your spot cannot be re-filled after that time.)




Cabin assignments have been doled out via email so y'all should know all about that by now. If you're looking for methods to share your excitement, the A-Camp Facebook page is a good place to start.

That being said, if you end up needing to cancel your spot, then you must do so by April 1st if you want the $250 refunded to you in full. You will get a 50% refund if you cancel before April 6th, a 25% refund if you cancel before April 10th, and no refund if you cancel after that. Thank you!


Hey-o! Thank you all ye beautiful points of light for filling out the second registration form!


Just wanted to remind you to pay your invoices and fill out the form but mostly just to say that we love you and are talking about you all the time.



Hi dudes! Y'all need to be sure you got the email that we sent to your email inbox two days ago. It has a link to our Facebook Page (I bet you'll LIKE it!) and also to a second registration form in which we gather more information about your needs, flights, wants, etc. We need those filled out ASAP!


Guess what? WE'RE STILL SO EXCITED ABOUT CAMP! This week Robin and Marni have been looking over ten billion scholarship applcations and we continue to get our collective shit together. Also, Jamie and Carolyn are now also coming to camp, yay!



We're so excited about CAMP and have so much work to do the next couple of weeks to get everyone situated!

If you've registered and said you need a payment plan and gotten an email asking you to pick a payment plan, please do so within the next week or you'll lose your spot and that would be super depressing for you but probably really exciting for somebody else, so.
