Sinking into the tension and balance between sustainability, accessibility, just compensation, and necessity, the WWC Weavers have decided to adjust the Pay as You Can model for WWC 2019 to a sliding scale of $100 to $880, with a non-refundable deposit of $50. The budgeted cost of camp per camper is $456. We hope that people who can will pay more than the average cost per camper to support those who need to pay less.
This change continues our spell and commitment to explore and heal our relationship with money. For WWC 2018, we took in $1,000 less than we needed to cover costs, and this was paid for out of reserves. In addition, we had five campers simply not show up to camp in a year in which many people were disappointed to not get in. We are shifting, balancing, and weaving our magic and community conversations to create a Camp that is accessible (both physically and financially), sustainable, and supports our magic at Camp and in all the Worlds.
In the coming years we will continue to evaluate and evolve this financial model as camp needs and resources fluctuate. We are not alone. We trust in the abundance and values of our interdependent and deeply hospitable community.
Camp with be held 90 minutes north of the Twin Cities, February 21-25, 2019. Early registration for Indigenous and People of Color will open at Noon CDT on Saturday, September 22nd and general registration will open at Noon CDT on Saturday, October 6th. In order to confirm your spot at camp, we are requiring a $50 non-refundable deposit. Payment of balance must be received no later than December 21, 2018.
