AB Chao Design Camp: 2013 Edition

Our gorgeous Chicago camp space

ALL NEW Design Camp dates and locations are up! Go get yourself a spot right this second. A few notes:

1. Camp tuition will now be one payment, not deposit + remainder like last year. I found that the 50% now/50 later plan was annoying and confusing for just about everyone, so this year we are going to make it simple.

2. How about that last-minute Salt Lake City date? I am going to Alt this year -- hooray! -- and decided, why not have a mini-camp while I'm there? I wanted to do one in SLC last year, but didn't, so I'm going to now. NOTE: Due to the fact that this class is going to be held in someone's living room, it's limited to 10 students, so sign up quick.

3. If you don't see your city yet, don't worry -- I will be adding more locations as the year progresses and as my schedule firms up. And, depending on demand, I may add an extra camp to existing locations.  I will likely add some new locations, too, so yay for that! 

4. I want to thank every single person who signed up for camp in 2012 -- you emailed me your progress pictures, wrote about it on your blogs, told your friends, and generally made me feel like the luckiest girl alive. If not for you, I would not even be writing this post announcing next year's dates, so: thank you, thank you, thank you. Oh, and confidential to my interns: I am sorry I fired you all so many times. I take it back. 

5. OK, enough of that emotional nonsense. GO SIGN UP FOR CAMP HOORAY!

What happened to Atlanta??

Girl, you best be coming to ATL next year, else I will put my hands on my hips and wag my finger at you most accusingly! And I will cry. You don't want to be responsible for my bitter tears, do you? Please come to the Southeast, I beg of you.

As a 2012 camper, I am irritated that I cannot express my opinions about Camp on Yelp, as that is the only way I know to express emotion. Absent of that, I'll just say you should sign up quickly before someone takes your spot. It is a fun time, and you will learn a lot. On Mother's Day in MSP? Sounds like a great gift idea, ask you families to send you and have dinner waiting on you at night when you return. Maybe also have them arrange a ride home if you imbibe too much on the bubbly.

So wanted to go to LA or Denver, but hubby will still be on deployment. Eyes are remaining peeled for later in year dates, I'm joining the first class I can when my kid's other caregiver returns!

Attention, people of Minnesota: The Minneapolis date has been changed to May 25-26. I can't believe I did that AGAIN -- I did it last year for New Orleans! Anyway, fixed.

AB, as Atlanta is not yet scheduled in stone, can I request that it be held NOT during a television sweeps month? Poor grammar; I care not. If it is NOT during a tv sweeps period, I might actually be able to vacation, Camp AND a bring a friend or two all at once. Pretty please? October sounds nice....

@Carole: I will keep it in mind! I enjoy sweeps, myself. I am going to try to avoid ATL in the summer, for obvious reasons, so October does sound good. :)

You are so lucky with some of these locations! Yay for Berlin! Design Camp Richmond? Hmmm. DC Design Camp Masters Edition? These both have a lovely ring to them...
December 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCamille
Signed up for Berlin!
And looking very much forward to it 
( AB, if you need accommodation or/and an assistant...i'm here !)

Yes! Atlanta! As the first person to sign up for the last Atlanta camp that unfortunately didn't happen and then trying to chase you around the country with the worst scheduling luck, I'm so excited and yet nervous that my bad scheduling luck will continue. Fingers crossed!

The London camp is on my birthday! I live in San Francisco though....but that would be a pretty amazing present to myself. Hrm.
