Event description

Description

For complete information, including the current list of sessions, see the History Camp Boston 2018 page.

We sold out last year months in advance. Despite the fact that we've added space this year, it would be a good idea to register as early as possible.

Registration fees and covering our costs: History Camp remains an all-volunteer effort that's designed just to break even. Our projections are based on everyone, including presenters, volunteers, and everyone else who pitches in and helps throughout the day, pays at least the basic registration fee. If that happens, we'll cover our costs. (If the base registration fee would pose a financial hardship that would keep you from attending, please contact me.)

Registration is higher this year than last also because this year there is a charge for the facility and we are not using one registration level to subsidize another. And for those who select lunch at Suffolk, the lunch will be much better than last year. (More on that below.)

Finally, last year's actual expenses came within 1% of the money we took in. That's uncomfortably close when there is no organization to step in to cover a shortfall. This year we've budgeted to cover a larger variance. If there is any surplus, we will set it aside for next year's History Camp.

After you register, your first and last name will appear on the list of registrants here at Eventbrite for all to see.

And after you register, please post to social media using the hashtags #historycamp and #historycampboston and encourage others to learn more about History Camp Boston by including a link to HistoryCamp.org/boston.

Lunch: If you want lunch at Suffolk, order it now. Lunch is more expensive this year, but it will be much better than last year's. I tried to do it on the cheap last year so that it didn't add as much to the ticket price, and that was a mistake. This year instead of cold sandwiches we will have a hot buffet.

If you have special dietary needs, consider bringing a lunch or picking one up from the many restaurants nearby. We'll have some vegetarian choices, but I'm not sure beyond that.

T-shirt: The only way to be sure that you'll get a shirt in your size, is to order it now. The shirts will be the same super-soft shirt we've used the last couple of years. (We may have have some to sell at History Camp, but they will be $5 - $10 more expensive and there's no guarantee that we'll have one in your size.)

Saturday evening performance: There will be a dramatic performance by Judith Kalaora immediately after History Camp wraps up. It's titled, "World War Women: The Unsung Heroines of WWII," it runs about an hour and a quarter, and it will be in the same room where we hold the last session, so it's especially convenient. It does require the purchase of an "add on," which you'll see once you've selected your ticket type and begun to check out.

Badges: This year you'll have a field to add information that will appear on your badge. This might be a particular interest you have, the title of your book or blog, an organization you're affiliated with, social media information, or anything else. (You can always grab a colored marker and add more, too.)

Sharing contact information: Folks have asked each year about a method to share contact information with others who attend. Last year I set up a closed Facebook group just for History Camp Boston, but it never got much traction. (You're still welcome to join.) You will have an opportunity to opt in to have your contact information shared with others who also wish to have their contact information made available.

Photographing and videotaping throughout the day: One of our goals is to share as much of History Camp with others as possible. If for whatever reason you don't want to appear in photographs or video that may be streamed live or posted online, shared on social media, or used in any other way, please don't attend. This is the disclosure. Attending represents consent. (Instead, enjoy History Camp Boston from the social media posts throughout the day and the videos and slides that will be posted after the event.)
