UCC Camp is best camp.

What is Camp?

Let's put a whole heap of computer nerds in one place for a weekend and see what happens! We'll make sure there's non-sucky internet, food, accomodation, and the rest is up to the people attending. LANning will definitely happen, but there will also be some people there who are doing hardware/software hacking and coding. Besides that, it's just a great chance to meet some like-minded people and network.

This is an 18+ event. Drink responsibly. Don't drink and drive.

Consent forms can be found here
