After 38 years, BACDS American Week is on hiatus due to insufficient attendance. Although we are not programming for Summer 2020, we are seeking your input. Recently we tried to remove some barriers by offering partial-week attendance, a sliding scale camp fee, and gender neutral calling. Perhaps our camp needs new timing, length, location, or focus. Or maybe it is time for something brand new to emerge. Please share your ideas at bacds.org/amweeksurvey , and if you wish, help design what may come next.  AmWeek 2021 needs a team of eager and fervent visionaries to revitalize and breathe life into whatever shape it takes.

Thank you for all your previous–and potential–support.
