NFNC Exploratorium Camp 2019

We consider camp a growthful co-creation of all who show up. We limit the size
of camp to enhance community connection. For this reason we are continuing to experiment
with our application process. We appreciate your participation and patience.

If you've been accepted and have found you cannot attend, please contact us as soon as possible.
You cannot sell your spot.

We are actively seeking property to be used for Exploratorium Camp and
year-round community events. If you are interested in contributing a tax-deductible
gift please send a separate check made out to New Culture Institute and mail to New
Culture Institute, PO Box 50388 Eugene, OR 97405. Thank you for your kind support.

Full value of camp is $500. Send a $200 deposit to secure your place. Complete your payment by self-determined gift at the event.

If we organizers should fail to give you a great camp experience - you owe us nothing more than the $200.00 you gave up front. If we succeed (and we will be asking all of our campers for feedback on how to do it better each day in case we're bombing) you make a choice if you would like to give us some, or all, of the rest of your fee.

Scholarships are available. Outdoor camping, indoor group sleeping space and all are meals included.
