Don't let the "camp" fool you. SkeptiCamp is NOT a kid's camp. Nor does it involve the outdoors.
Rather, SkeptiCamp stands as a new model for conferencing among skeptics — a model that focuses on providing each of us a rich avenue to gain proficiency in the skills and knowledge of this domain.
Like the traditional lecture-oriented events that have dominated skepticism for decades, SkeptiCamps also feature talks—typically a day's worth—but the similarity ends there.
To mount a traditional event typically requires the resources and expertise of an established organization. By contrast, the SkeptiCamp model places substantive events within reach of informal groups of skeptics anywhere around the world.
