Base fee:
  • This is a members gathering and we have made it FREE for you!
  • This fee covers camping from Fri.-Sun., but let us know if you only plan to camp one night.
  • If you are currently teaching in Allegany County, MD as a teacher, child care provider, director, or other educational professional, your registration is also free. Email for code.

We have re-envisioned this special gathering for Members in 2023...join us for a camp out in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains at the historic Evergreen Heritage Center in Mt. Savage, MD. This year's summit is designed to make space for networking, sharing, and learning in an organic way, leaving oodles of time to connect with others.

Because this is YOUR event, we hope some of you will let us know if you'd like to offer ideas during a workshop block. Based on the feedback we get from registrants, we'll group sessions around topics of interest. We can't wait to see what you'd like to share or learn more about! You can tell us if you'd like to: 

  • Skills and workshop sessions: Share informal, hands-on topic with an active component (EX. nature arts, plant ID, tool use, etc.)
  • Round Robin session: Hold space for dialogue around a topic or issue
  • Offer a 'show and tell' of sorts around books, gear, artifacts or something similar
