Work Trade Available: If you are able to commit to help for 3 hours during the weekend, we would love your help. We need help washing the floors each day (so fun!), help with registration, cleaning up meals (yum), and with clean up at the end (so helpful!). 3 hours of help takes $30 off of the jam cost. You will pay the regular jam fee and be reimbursed at the end according to the hours you worked.
Here is the form to sign up for work trade: https://goo.gl/forms/IpS5nFDnuj1b2da92

We changed the date of our jam to the Summer so that we can offer camping. We are a small and yet vital community, and sadly we don't have the ability to find housing for dancers. Please find your own housing. There are options below. Camping will run out, so reserve your site with the campground soon. Contact Paul (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
North Beach Campground: A really beautiful location, right on the bike path (bring your bike) and next to the LAKE!, just 2 miles from the jam. They accept reservations and will fill up, so... Go online to http://enjoyburlington.com/ or Call the campground directly at 1-800-571-1198. Tent sites with one tent = $72 for the two nights for up to 4 people. If you want more then one tent, then that is $5/night more. So at the most, split between 4 people and having an extra tent, brings you to $20.50 for lodging for the whole weekend. Only one car per site, extra car parking is available.
Amanda and Abbi are staying at the campground and most likely biking to and from the jam. =) More info and to reserve a campsite: http://enjoyburlington.com/
Couch Surfing: couchsurfing.org. (Free) This is a really great resource that we highly recommend.
Burlington Hostel: $40/night. Learn more: http://www.theburlingtonhostel.com/rooms.html
AirBnB: Really charming options for as low as $40/night. The lower price ones will go quickly. More info: www.airbnb.com
Have an idea that is not on here? Please let Abbi know, email@example.com
