LODGING

Campers will be staying in the dorms at The College of Idaho during the event. You will have the choice of a private bedroom or shared bedroom, both with shared bathrooms. The dorms do not provide bedding, towels, or toiletries. Most campers will need to bring these items, however for those with limited luggage capacity other arrangements will be available. For those with additional needs, reasonable accommodations are possible.

FOOD

Meals and snacks will be provided during the camp, starting with dinner on Wednesday, June 12 and concluding with afternoon snacks on Friday, June 14. (And, of course, no camp is complete without campfire-roasted s’mores!)

TRAVEL

Campers will be provided a travel stipend based on the one-way driving distance between your library and The College of Idaho (2112 Cleveland Blvd, Caldwell, ID 83605). This travel stipend is intended to offset your costs traveling to and from The College of Idaho and any meals or incidentals NOT provided during the camp. Travel stipend amounts are based on one-way driving distance from your library to The College of Idaho:

If you are driving a car or flying:
0-49 miles one-way = $0
50-149 miles one-way = $200
150-249 miles one-way = $300
250- 349 miles one-way = $400
350+ miles one-way = $500

If you are a passenger in a car (not driving):
0-49 miles one-way = $0
50-149 miles one-way = $25
150-249 miles one-way = $40
250- 349 miles one-way = $70
350+ miles one-way = $70

There is no registration cost to attend the Futures Camp and a travel stipend will be provided to help cover your costs to get to the camp. However, in lieu of registration costs, we do have requirements we ask of you in order to participate.

I agree to attend the entirety of the Futures Camp.

You will need to arrive on The College of Idaho campus in Caldwell by 4:00pm on Wednesday, June 12th. The camp will conclude at 5:00pm on Friday, June 14th.

I agree to stay in the dorms on campus.

Campers will be staying in the dorms at The College of Idaho during the event. You will have the choice of a private bedroom or shared bedroom, both with shared bathrooms. The dorms do not provide bedding, towels, or toiletries. Most campers will need to bring these items, however for those with limited luggage capacity other arrangements will be available. For those with additional needs, reasonable accommodations are possible.

I agree to attend alone.

Due to The College of Idaho’s rules and the nature of this camp, family members, friends, and pets are not permitted to stay or attend with you. (However, Knuffle Bunnies are permitted.)

I agree to develop and implement Futures Camp practices in my library.

After the camp, you will continue the work of the camp by developing and implementing the following 3 practices in your library: 1) make time regularly to share and talk about new ideas and trends with others, 2) integrate new ideas and trends into existing spaces, services, and partnerships, and 3) track and follow new and developing ideas and trends as they relate to your library.

I agree to complete all required reports.

After the camp, you must complete an “in-progress” report by December 31, 2019 and a final report by June 30, 2020 explaining how you’ve implemented Futures Camp practices at your library. You must also attend two online casual “fireside” group chats offered monthly between July and December 2019.
