MacCamp Fall 2019

It is time again for PMUG’s Apple oriented socializing. MacCamp is a MUG members only weekend retreat that includes classes, recreation, networking, and social activities. MacCamp starts on Friday evening and continues until Sunday afternoon.

The next MacCamp will be October 11-13, 2019. We will be at Oral Hull Park just outside of Sandy, OR. Our lineup of presentations will include:
Friday Night: John Lutz covers the ins–and–outs of Social Media.
Saturday Morning: Joshin Yamada will show us iOS 13 + iPadOS.
Saturday Afternoon: Steve Riggins will introduce features of macOS Catalina.
Sunday Morning:  Loren Leed will review basics, then show more advanced abilities of Apple’s Pages application.

These classes, activities, food, and lodging are included in your registration fee. We will have sleeping spaces in the dorm across from the dining hall and presentation space.

If you are a member of another Macintosh Users Group you don’t need to join PMUG. All user group members come for the same price as PMUG members. If you are not a member of a User Group, you can join PMUG for only $42 per year. Go to our signup page for instructions on how to join.

This event is not for profit, PMUG does not make money on the event. If by some chance we do make money, the profit will be used to make your next MacCamp even more enjoyable.

Sharing – Not all learning is done in the classroom. MacCamp is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, exchange knowledge, and just have a good time. We hope you will invite a friend to come with you.

Help – Instructors and other knowledgeable people are available throughout the Camp and are willing to help with any questions or problems you may have.

Games – Pit yourself against the software. Battle one on one with another camper, or join a network melee and contend with several opponents at once. Join a group and help unravel a new puzzle. Find out just how social an activity computer gaming can be.

Snacks – If regular meals just aren’t enough – snacks and drinks can be brought and shared during those late night sessions.

Insomnia – Prepare yourself for some late evenings. Most campers find themselves up much longer than expected.

Interviews – If you have not joined us before and want more information, Loren Leed has posted videos with MacCamp attendees. These are a great way to get a feel for what MacCamp is all about.

The cost for User Group members will be $175.00. This covers the food and lodging for Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.
