Thank you for attending the 2016 Basecamp Summer Training!
Summer training is a two-week experience in California for school and district leaders and coaches and one week for teachers. Teams should also schedule at least one week to meet after Summer Training to finalize orientation, project plans, and curriculum. Our current Basecamp schools reported that team participation in Summer Training was critical to their success.
