UCC's annual camp in 2015 will be its fifth year running since the last hiatus. Let's see if all this experience pays off and we can pull off another awesome camp!

See past camp information: Historical Information and Planning

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, 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.

The packing list for camp has been finalised! Be sure to go through it while packing up: HowToCamp.

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