Last Stretch

Our trip to Puerto Rico is finally around the corner! The THATCampCaribe team is very excited to meet all of you. We’re happy to tell you that about 66 people have already signed up and more are adding themselves from Puerto Rico as we speak.
As we approach the date we wanted to give you some last minute info.
Session Proposals
This is the perfect time to contribute to our blog any ideas or propose a session. The more people contribute, the easier it will be for us to set up our breakout sessions on Tuesday morning. To suggest a session or topic you are interested in please log into the THATCampCaribe blog using the username and password that you should have received in a separate message when your application was accepted. Don’t be shy!
Did you buy your airline tickets? This is the time to do so. Remember to visit our travel page for some tips and detailed information. Those arriving in San Juan on Sunday or Monday will be happy to know we are arranging buses for you. We do need to know who you are so we can arrange the buses! Please fill out this Google form. The amount of folks who sign up for the bus service will determine how many buses we hire.
Travel Aid
We have worked really hard to get travel subsidies for some folks. We couldn’t get funding for everyone who signed up, but we’re happy to say we will be helping out some (graduate students received priority). We will continue trying to raise money right up until the event, so stay tuned. All extra funds we receive from now on are being used to help more people come. Those of you who can afford a donation, make sure to check out our donation page.
If for some reason you can’t make it, please send me a line so that I can take you off the list. Knowing the exact amount of people who will be present will help us organize the event better on the ground. A quick line should do.
Our list of workshops for Monday has expanded. Make sure you take a look at the new list. Veterans are welcome offer workshops instead of sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send me a line!
See you campers soon!
