Each day at camp is filled with learning, great food, and activities

Learning is the focus of SQL Summer Camp, but we also try to have fun and build relationships with our fellow SQL Server users.

Learning is done early so we can get some free time each day to relax, socialize, and explore the beauty of Nova Scotia.

Below is an outline of how each day is structured for the week of SQL Summer Camp. *Subject to change

Day 1 (Sunday)

campCamp registration & check-in starts at noon Atlantic time with Camp activities officially kicking off 6 pm Atlantic time.

We will start with an introduction of the counselors, speakers and the campers and go over the basics of how Camp will work for the week.

Afterwards we will distribute camp supplies and swag and cap off the night with a good meal together spending more time to get to know each other.

techWe start our week of SQL Server training bright and early!

Breakfast will be ready and available at 6:30 in the morning to give plenty of time to prepare for the first training sessions at 8 am.

We make sure there are plenty of breaks and snacks available all day long to keep energy and focus up so you can retain as much knowledge as possible.

We finish up early in the afternoon to give Campers time to mingle or hang out with family and friends they may bring along (We call them Stowaways!) before we settle in for a gourmet dinner.

We cap off the day with a fun camp activity of snacks and local wines, whiskey and rum to try and everyone is welcome to participate in, or not, the choice is yours.
