Arrival and departure:

You can arrive any time after 4 PM on Saturday. Saturday afternoon is for registration and getting settled. After unloading, all cars must be moved to designated parking areas. The last Saturday has no scheduled activities beyond breakfast; it's for packing and saying good-byes. We have to vacate the premises by 10 AM. Because of limited parking (and to save gas), please car pool.

We can not arrange transportation for you but we can provide you a list of people participating in the camp from your area or from San Francisco Bay area (if you are flying in) so that you can try to make ride share arrangements. Please send an e mail to Joshkun Tamer (in June) to request the list. Also please let us know if you can provide rides to other participants to and from the camp.
