As we have done for the last few years, we’re planning a few off-site events for the Thursday of HalloweeM.
The list of planned excursions will been posted below. This is a work in progress so check back to see if there's a new excurison offered that would be of interest to you. If any excursion for which you signed up is full, you will be wait-listed and notified should there be a cancellation. If you need to cancel, please e‑mail the Excursions Chair so that a person on the waitlist can go in your place.
Transportation To/From Excursions
For the excursions, we will be using shared transportation. When you register, please indicate if you are willing to give anyone a ride to/from the hotel, need a ride to/from the hotel, or will be getting there of your own accord. If you have any mobility issues, please let us know when you register, and we’ll check with the venue to see if they can accommodate you1. If you need a ride and have mobility issues that restrict your use of common transit options, also let us know when you register; we will do our best to check if anyone driving to the excursion can accommodate you, but it is highly unlikely.
1CAM is not responsible for transporting or supplying equipment for members who have mobility issues.
Also note that the start time for the excursion is not the time we will leave the hotel—it’s when the event starts at the location. So if you need a ride, keep an eye out for the confirmation e-mail just before WeeM that will let you know when drivers and riders will gather at the hotel. (This does not apply, of course, if you’re meeting us there.)
Kids on Excursions
While some excursions are open to all ages, we do not offer babysitting on Excursions. As a general rule, parents must accompany anyone under the age of 16. Some excursions have specific age restrictions that are noted under the Restrictions heading, and those restrictions supersede the general rule. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy or regarding specific circumstances, please contact us before signing up.
You must register for WeeM in order to be eligible to go on any of the excursions. Since the number of people for each excursions is limited, it is best you pay as soon as possible. Although you can pay by check, if your check is not received within 7 days of registering for an excursion, a later registrant who has paid may be given priority when the excursion has reached capacity.
If we have to cancel an excursion for any reason, any money collected will be refunded. Regarding individual cancellations, unfortunately, if we’re collecting fees, it means the excursion requires us to make payments in advance to book the space. We may not be able to get refunds from the vendor and so refunds cannot be guaranteed. However, if your circumstances or travel plans change after you've booked an excursion, please let us know. If we can sell your spot to someone else, we will try to do so and will issue a refund accordingly.
