The schedule for San Diego has posted on the web site. Here's a link: http://www.campwidow.org/schedule
Saturday workshop details aren't yet posted; those usually come out a month or so before Camp, so it won't be long.
I will be going, although haven't registered yet. I understand there is a discounted rate for members, but can't see where to take the discount when registering. Anyone figured that out yet?
Yes, the registration fee is $350 instead of $399 if you're a member of a group. You'll see that option under the Payment Information section of the registration form. Just click on 'Group' and when you start to type in Widowed Village the box will automatically fill it in.
We hold an informal gathering at the pool bar on Thursday afternoon. It's a great way to meet others before things get busy on Friday. So if you're arriving on Thursday be sure to stop by any time between 4 and 6pm ... although you'll more than likely still find Campers in that area well into the evening.
I will be at Camp Widow in San Diego. My 19 year old daughter is traveling with me; she is looking forward to some beach time. We fly in from Sacramento on Thursday noon-ish and depart on Sunday afternoon. We plan on taking a taxi to the hotel.
I lost my husband of 22 years in January. This will be my first Camp Widow. I am looking forward to it, but I am sure it will be emotional and scary and wonderful and many other things.
I hope to see some of you by the pool on Thursday evening!
I will be there. I have signed up to be matched with a roommate -- when do we find out info on our roomie? I am driving down from Ventura county Thursday, dropping off my kids at my parents' house (also in SD), and checking in to the hotel that afternoon, staying until Sunday. It's my first year as a widow and so also my first year at camp. Looking forward to it, but a little apprehensive, as well.
ETA: Just checked the schedule -- what's the dress attire for the ball? Is it too late to sign up for the 5k?
