CodeCampFor as long as Code Camps have been running here in the northeast, there’s been talk of running a real camping Code Camp.  Well, the wait is over and the chance is coming up very soon!

The Maine Developer Network (the user group in Augusta, ME) will be hosting this event the weekend of August 27th – 29th at Mt. Blue State Park in Weld, ME.

From the event page:

mdn_logoThe time for the long awaited much anticipated first ever code camp with actual camping is upon us!  Please join us for an amazing coding adventure at one of the most coveted parks in Maine.  Camping will begin at 1:00 p.m. Friday and continue through 11:00 a.m. Sunday. Daytime will bring outdoor activities, the evenings will be filled with code! Bring just yourself or your entire family, because this weekend of camping is totally free.

We have tremendous activities available for coders and non-coders alike.  We have included the short list below for your reference. We are even going to attempt a real life version of Conway's Game of Life!

Wait, did that say “free”?  Yes, yes it did.  Read on for more and to register.

This should be a great way to relax, get away from it all, make new friends, and reconnect with nature!
