Camp COCO is a weekend retreat for members and friends of COCO. It’s a slightly wild experience on the North Shore of Lake Superior, where you can wear plaid and flannel without any sense of irony.
What happens at Camp?
Inspiring talks from amazing speakers (me, Dessa, Patrick Rhone, Robert Stephens)
Outdoor activities like canoeing, rock climbing and hiking
Conversations about work and life
Family style meals…with wine!
Nightly boozy bonfires
Everybody makes new friends (we don’t know why, but it’s a thing)
We’ll post more details as they come! Meanwhile, be sure to get your ticket!
