I would like to organize a retreat for any curious, science loving, outdoorsy folks that possibly includes Skepticamp
style presentations. Kind of a blend between Skepticamp and Skeptics Under the Stars
. Possible locations include Cacapon Resort State Park, WV
or Ithaca NY
(Gorges and a Sagan connection). We could potentially drag along an astronomer for star gazing and such. Nobody would be required to present and I was thinking that maybe a loose itinerary with group events that can be selectively participated in might be the best way to proceed.
Accommodations would be ideally cheap in cabin-style lodging but absolutely with modern amenities, and an attempt will be made to be near enough a town for food and beverage adventures.
Timeline would be late summer, early fall.. August or September perhaps?
Please share your thoughts, I am especially interested answers to the following questions:
Would anyone like to this? Definitely? Maybe? What would prevent you for doing it? What would you like to do if you would come?
