Unroll your sleeping bag and prep your smores’. Invoke Labs is hosting a 2 day CampAway along with our friendly community managing “camp counsellors” at the Cheakamus Centre (North Vancouver Outdoor School) in Brackendale, BC.

Sit around the campfire, roam through the woods, and confer in the clubhouse. It’s where you can let it all out, take it all in, learn and bond with community builders and managers from across industries, near and far. We’ll share best practices, and swap tales of overcoming adversity. And don’t worry, there are beds, flush toilets, showers, and hot meals provided…and did we mention the libations?

That’s it for now. See you soon!
