Friends of Blue Sky,
We are getting VERY excited to join fellow photographers and photographer lovers for a two-night retreat at Camp Westwind on the beautiful Oregon coast— located just north of Lincoln City, OR. We'd love for you to join us! Enjoy your time on 500 acres of secluded prime coastland with two miles of unspoiled beach, tide pools, a saltwater estuary, mountain trails, meadows, hidden lakes, and a spectacular ocean view.Camp Blue Sky is a casual, relaxing "retreat from the real world” for photographers and photography lovers. In addition to having plenty of free time for beach activities, photographing, and hiking in the glorious natural setting, we will have ongoing projections in the main building both evenings (like they do in the square during the Arles photo festival in France), including 20 images of whatever work you'd like to share. There will also be informal workshops, discussions, professional networking and the making of lifelong friends.
How much will all this cost?
The all-in cost for this weekend is just $200 for Blue Sky Members, and includes transportation to Camp Westwind from Blue Sky and back, lodging, food, and drink.
*Visit blueskygallery.org/support/join/ to join today if you are not currently a member. Annual memberships start at just $25 for students, artists, and seniors.
What are Camp Westwind's accommodations like?
Cabin lodging consists of cozy, but rustic shared cabins featuring single bunk beds (most sleep 9, and a couple sleep 16.) Dining is communal and delicious. Plan on sharing meals together; have a seat next to someone new and make a new friend. You can see lots of pictures at http://westwind.org/westwind/galleries/.
*NEW THIS YEAR: Reserve an entire cabin for you and 8 friends! (Cabins sleep up to 9 people)- Guarantee to know your bunk-mates by reserving a cabin for you and eight friends.
[Individuals (and couples) will be assigned to cabins after registration is closed]
