Register today for Camp ThunderCraft 2022

Sorry, no refunds will be given after March 24th, 2022

As of December 2021, proof of vaccination (or a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours) will be required to attend Camp ThunderCraft.

Cabins sleep between 4-6 campers, so please be aware that you will be sharing a room with others. We realize that due to COVID, more of you may want the option to share a room with fewer people, or even by yourself. This year you will see options for this on the registration form below, for an additional cost. If you live on Vashon or would like to find your own accommodations on the island and simply join us for the day, you’ll see an option for this as well (with a discounted registration fee).

What you’ll get for your $350

  • 2 nights of lodging
  • Wine & cheese happy hour
  • All meals, treats, drinks & snacks
  • A variety of educational classes/sessions
  • Roundtable discussions focusing on various obstacles we face as small business owners
  • Connecting with your community and other makers
  • Ample downtime and relaxation
  • Secluded retreat on beautiful Vashon Island

We realize you may feel wary about signing up for an overnight camp while the current Omicron surge is happening. Here are some considerations for this year’s camp that will hopefully help you to feel more comfortable:

  • This year we have made sure there are many different options for bunking, depending on your comfort level. There will be single-, double-, and triple-occupancy rooms available (though these are in short supply so we encourage you to register early if this is important to you) in addition to the regular 4-to-6-person bunks. You are also welcome to find alternative lodging nearby or sleep in your van if that works for you, and your registration fee will be reduced accordingly.
  • We will be requiring proof of vaccination for all campers/instructors/staff at Camp this year, and the same requirements are true for the staff at Camp Burton itself
  • We will be following all state and county mandates regarding indoor masking that are in place at that time
  • We will be offering full refunds right up until our final deadline of March 24th should your situation or comfort level change.
The best things about camp, for me, as someone just starting out are as follows: First, just believing I deserved to give this dream a serious go was important. Going to camp was literally and symbolically about investing in myself. Second, talking with people and hearing their stories and being asked to describe and explain my business helped me to clarify what I really want to do. Third-being around people who actually wanted to listen and who generously gave me such thoughtful and creative ideas, who are also going through similar things was extremely validating! Last, but not least, I made connections with people face to face and exchanged contact information thus expanding my support network!
