9:15 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. Session 1

3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Teams 4 & 5 Life List Workshops or Free Time
Same as the first sessions, but for different folks. In the past, we’ve done these on the second day, but then everybody bonds and has to go home. Dumb. Now we have time to compare notes across teams and make introductions to people in other groups who have interests aligned with yours. Hooray!
If you’re not on Team 4 or 5, relax. Then prepare your obscure Dr. Who costume for the…
7:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. Space Camp Party
Tonight we’re gonna party like our nation still has a space program, whut whuuut! Campers go all out for this, because space is awe inspiring and we are not dead inside. If you need ideas, they’re here. Remember when Stevie made the papier mache planet model headdress? Damn.
There will be food here! Make sure your costume allows for mouth-hole access.

SUNDAY, October 20
Breakfast On Your Own
Actually, if you really want to be on your own, you should avoid the hotel restaurant. Most of us will be there at various points, probably hugging and taking selfies. Gross.
12 p.m. Check Out
Tip your maid, please. Don’t leave your razor in the shower.
Items of Note:
Most Campers arrive on Thursday and leave Sunday morning. Keep in mind that check-in at the Ace Hotel is at 3 p.m. and check-out is at noon.
Throughout the weekend, we will be breaking out into assigned teams to talk goals and what’s next in smaller groups. Before arriving at Camp Mighty, take some time to draft your Life List and identify five goals you would like to accomplish in the next year. This will come in handy during the conference. (And, you know, in your life.)
We’ll be updating the schedule regularly. So check back as Camp Mighty approaches for the most up-to-date information.
Schedule subject to change.
