Hanging out at the tiny house at ESS 2014.

Space at Epic Skill Swap is limited to 120 people on each weekend. This is for two reasons—we want to maintain the intimate, community-based orientation of previous Skill Swaps, and Camp Wilmot cannot comfortably hold more visitors than that.

How registration works:

When you register, you will pay a $25 deposit to hold your spot.If the deposit is a hardship for you, please contact the organizers at

When you register, you can choose to pay the full cost as well, if you wish. Epic Skill Swap operates on a sliding scale contribution model. The average cost per person to run the event is about $85. Our sliding scale ranges from $40 to $140, out of a recognition that some people have more flexible finances than others, and we want Epic Skill Swap to be open to all who want to come. If you can pay above the per-person cost, you do so to help cover the costs of the whole community. If your finances are limited at the moment, we ask that you please pay what you are able.

Registration for kids:

You do not need to register your baby and toddler, but we do ask that you register older kids who you expect will eat with the group. Our suggested sliding scale for kids is $25–$50, but we encourage you to pay what feels appropriate based on your child and your situation.

Cancellation policy:

  • Please let us know ASAP if you decide not to come.
  • If you let us know by two weeks prior to the event, we will refund your registration fee.
  • Two weeks or closer to the weekend, we cannot guarantee a refund of your registration fee (we’ll see what we can do, though), but please do still let us know.  If you have to cancel at the last minute, knowing that may allow us to make space for someone who missed the registration deadline.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the organizers at
