Camp is 1 week away. Are you ready?

Where should I be & when?

The boat to camp leaves The Landing at 5pm and 6pm on Friday, August 26th. Please arrive to the landing half an hour before the boat is set to depart. It takes about 1 hour to get to The Landing from Downtown Spokane. Plan accordingly. If you miss the 6pm boat, there is not another way to get to camp on Friday night. DON’T MISS THE BOAT!

The Landing

3088 W. Lutherhaven Rd.
Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814

Boat Times

Friday: 5pm & 6pm
Sunday: 11:30am

When you arrive at The Landing you will be checked in and camp rules will be read to you on the boat ride over. When you arrive at camp, your Camp Counselor will be there to greet you with your swag bag and answer any questions you may have.

What should I bring?

The first thing we will ask for upon your arrival to The Landing is your completed Liability Waiver. Please download the waiver and bring a signed copy to The Landing on Friday. We cannot let campers enter camp without a signed waiver.

You are a big kid and we trust that you know how to pack for a couple days as camp. If you’re a little unsure, you’ll find a list of suggestions for things to bring and rules for what not to bring here.

Workshop Changes

Our amazing facilitator and sponsor, Joel Barbour of The Great PNW, won’t be able to make it to camp to teach his workshop: How to Survive a Bear Attack…and Design Apparel. However, our immensely talented Keynote Speaker, Von Glitschka, will be taking the reigns and leading similar workshop in his stead (see below for details).

Making Iconic Logos

Process Makes Perfect

In this talk, Von will walk you through the creative process from analog ideation, how it facilitates vector building, color exploration, art direction, rejection and the ultimate usage of iconic brand design. Along the way, he’ll share creative insights and methodology he uses daily to craft visual identities for companies large and small.

An Ode to Joel Barbour

To show our support and appreciation to Joel, who was injured in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago, we’ll be sending him a group photo from camp. If you have any Great PNW gear you’d like to wear to camp on Friday for the picture, we strongly encourage it!

For Your Family
