Do you have a passion, gifts, wisdom, experience or interest you’d like to share with other men?
Workshops are led by you all – the men who come to the weekend on a volunteer basis. It can be a presentation. Or a group discussion. Or an activity you want to lead. This creates variety for the event and a wonderful sense of community.
Workshops can be almost anything! Consider ideas like interests, exploring new subcultures, meditation, discussing lessons learned from a recent experience/book/class, dance, outdoor/active fun, art exploration, storytelling, fantasy, and more.
You needn’t feel that you have to have a mastery of something to create a workshop; if you have an interest enough to give something a try, no matter how basic, CMG is a great place to give it a whirl! Some of the most requested repeat workshops came from people who initially didn’t feel totally sure about leading it. If you have questions: registrar@theCMG.org .
With the exceptions of the Ropes Course (if offered), all other workshops are included in each man’s registration cost. Attendees offer workshops as a way of giving back to and supporting the community.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
Although you can fill out the form by hand at camp (we’ll have a few extras), we encourage you not to wait until then. When you do it by hand at the last minute, with all the distractions of camp, it often feels rushed and less clear. So we appreciate your coming here to create your super-legible, exquisitely-worded workshop submission instead.
If you CAN open the .docx Word document via the green button below, fill it out such that it all fits on one page (in a human-readable sized font). Then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line exactly like below, except your name instead of John Doe:
cmgform workshop spring gathering John Doe
Our system is designed to forward that to the correct people, based on looking for “cmgform” at the beginning and “workshop” following that.
If you are more comfortable in GoogleDocs or another editor, you can also copy the .docx contents there and create your page to print there. NOTE: We recommend that you also bring a printed copy…just in case! You can turn your printed form in at the check-in table upon arriving.
If you CAN’T open or use the .docx file, click here for an alternate method of submission that’s a little more work for us, but we’ll do that for you. 🙂
You’ll find out when your workshop is when we post them all. If you have a REALLY good reason to request a timeslot (or avoidance of a timeslot), you can put that in your request, but we appreciate as many as possible who don’t do so because it allows us to balance the offerings as best we can.
NOTE: All CMG provides is a space for your workshop to take place and, in most cases, seating. If there’s more that you need to make it successful (from paper, pencils, art supplies, other props…) , you would need to bring them.
Thank you in advance for the gift of your time, energy, and heart!
