Workshops are lead by COMEGA attendees...
Our workshops allow you to explore and grow in a volunteer facilitated group which last around 1 and half to 2 hours or more. Each workshop is unique and is held in different parts of the campgrounds. Make sure to sign up as there may be limited space. Workshops are also completely optional so you can use that time to explore, recoup, or connect.
Workshop Time Slots:
- Friday evening (1.5hrs)
- Saturday morning (1.5hrs)
- Saturday afternoon: 1st block (1.5hrs) 2nd block (1.5hrs)*
- Sunday morning (1.5hrs)
*You may choose to offer a workshop that takes up both afternoon time blocks that lasts up to 3 hours or offer a 1.5 hour workshop during either block.
Once a year we offer a "Pre-Gathering Workshop" lead by a guest facilitator. This is an additional full-day workshop offered on the Thursday before the regular spring gathering. Click here for more info for this workshop offered only at spring-time gatherings.
