Register for GearUp Weekend – 2017 SOLD OUT!

As of 17 April, GearUp Weekend 2017 has sold out. There is a waiting list for available camping registrations with a limited number of places.

Join the waitlist here on Eventbrite. Follow the ‘Register’ link and choose ‘Join Waitlist’. If your turn comes, you will receive an e-mail invitation valid for 72 hours that will allow you to register. One registration is allowed for each invitation. Sharing and ‘plus ones’ will not be accepted.

The following information has been retained for those interested in the 2018 event:

Depending on which plan you choose, your registration fee includes 2 or 3 days and nights of kinky fun, all catered meals (Thursday dinner to Sunday breakfast), open bar, pool and hot tub, play space, all workshops and activities, camping space, and shower and toilet facilities.

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 registration@gearupweekend.com 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 that the blankets and towels shown in the photos are not provided during GearUp Weekend.

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.
