NFNC Summer Camp 2017

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.

We believe that cultures tend to thrive best with a wide spectrum of differences; so does our
summer camp. We are asking some questions to help us in the process of creating a diverse
and dynamic camp. These are some criteria we've found help us fulfill this intention.

A wide spectrum of the following:
mix of new campers vs. returning campers
gender ratios (male-identified, female-identified, Other-identified),
sexual orientation (LGBTQ+), families, class, race/ethnicity, age, cultural origins
In the comment box at the bottom of this form please let us know
anything about yourself in regards to creating a diverse environment.

Please note that this event is not a first-come, first-serve ticket purchase or festival. 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 Summer 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.
