If registration is sold out you can access the waitlist here.

Sleeping Options

Don’t feel like camping? You can upgrade to a single bunk in a dormitory-style room (8-10 people per room) or a private cabin room for an additional fee. If you need accommodation for a disability, please email and we will do our best to assist you. To see what the bunk rooms or cabins look like, you can check out the Saratoga Springs website.

Note: While bedding (top sheet, duvet, pillow) is provided for cabins and bunks, towels are not. Campers must supply both their own toiletries and towels.

Sharing a Cabin Room

Only one person needs to purchase the upgrade. Your roommate should purchase a base price “camping” registration.

Paying for Another Person

Each attendee must be registered separately with their own legal name. If you want to pay for someone else, simply enter their name, email address, and other information. When you proceed to PayPal, you can still use your own credit card to pay. The credit card information does not need to match the name of the attendee.

Applying for a Scholarship

Applications for scholarships and hardship discounts for GearUp Weekend 2020 are currently open. A very limited number of discount registrations are available for those who may not be able to afford the weekend due to financial hardship. Hardship discounts are awarded based on need and on participation in GearUp events. Although we try to provide discounts to everyone who needs one, it is not always possible due to limited funds. Awards will be announced in late June. For more information about the GearUp scholarship program, please contact us by email at
