FileMaker Summer Camp 2022
We think of "summer" as a feeling, not a season. This year, FileMaker Summer Camp returns to the hills of northern Georgia Monday, October 24 - Thursday, October 27, 2022.
Registration will open on Monday, May 9, 2022 at noon ET.
Registration closes on Monday, September 16, 2022 at noon ET.
Tickets are $650 per person, which includes the conference, a tshirt, and all meals from dinner on Monday through a box lunch to go on Thursday. See below for accommodation prices.
How many people can attend?
Excellent question! The short answer is: we don’t know.
The long answer is: somewhere between 100-400. The limitation this year is accommodation, rather than registration. If people choose to share cabins, camp, or sleep offsite, we can accommodate more participants. If everyone wants to be onsite in a private space, we won’t be able to fit as many.
What are my lodging options?
We are pleased to offer four on-site lodging options. The prices for each are listed below for the entire conference duration. This is not per night pricing.
Additionally, participants are welcome to arrange their own accommodations. The city of Clayton, GA is about a 30-minute drive from camp, and has several hotels and vacation rental properties.
Large Cabin - $1200 per unit
A large cabin has three spaces – two small rooms, each with 2 twin beds, and a main room that contains 8 bunk beds. Each large cabin has two showers, toilets, and sinks; some have a large bathroom with stalls, and others have two private bathrooms.
Small Cabin - $600 per unit
A small cabin has two spaces – a small room that contains 2 twin beds, and a main room that contains 4 bunk beds. Each small cabin has one private bathroom.
Camping - $120 per person
Tent camping is also available. Tent campers have access to shared bathroom facilities. No utilities or hookups are available, and we cannot accommodate camper vans or RVs of any kind. Campers need to bring their own tent and supplies.
Hotel Room - $600 per unit
There are 57 hotel rooms on site, almost all of which have two double beds. All hotel rooms have a private bathroom.
What about COVID?
We will use the information and data available to us as we approach the dates for camp. If case counts continue to be low (as of this writing, they’re less than 10 cases per day per 100,000 people) we likely will not require any COVID-mitigation measures.
Depending on case counts as we approach camp, we may require COVID-mitigation measures including the following, or others:
Mask-wearing in indoor spaces
COVID vaccination, including booster shots
We anticipate announcing our final COVID policy by September 1. If you feel uncomfortable with the possibility of the above requirements, please keep in mind that tickets are non-refundable.
Tickets for Pause Summer Camp are non-refundable, but they are transferable. If you buy a ticket and then you’re unable to make it, we encourage you to see if you can find someone else to take your seat or your lodging.
