Campy Hour Networking Event- Seattle

Join us for Campy Hour at Georgetown Brewing, Seattle. This is an opportunity for some low-key networking, or even just to hang out with fellow summer camp pros. We're headed to Georgetown Brewing Company, home of Manny's Pale Ale and Lucille IPA. Both the date and location of this Campy Hour were tactfully selected: ACA's standards course takes place that same day, 3.5 miles away at the Museum of Flight. Smart!
