Program Connection is the annual gathering of program-minded people from camps and conference centers across the continent. The 2018 event will be held at Pilgrim Center (Ripon, WI). We invite all Program Directors, Summer Camp Directors, Program Staff and anyone who has an interest in programming in the Christian camp and conference context to attend. Come share the great ideas your site has successfully implemented, as well as learn from other camps and conference centers. The schedule will include time for sharing, discussion, hands-on activities, workshops, and plenty of fellowship time! Discussion topics are decided by participants at the start of the event, so sessions are aimed at what you need to learn or what you want to share. Come prepared to learn, to share, and to have fun!
