Silent Auction/Boutique information

This will be the second year of a new June Camp scholarship fundraiser - a  Silent Auction and boutique. 

Wouldn’t it be splendid to see those rarely worn costumes be adopted and treasured?  Use the time before June Camp to purge your closets of costumes, ethnic jewelry, shawls/scarfs, belts, boots, shoes, vests, fun dance skirts, etc.  You can also bring unwanted items from your collections of folk dance CDs, books, dance syllabi, etc.

If clothing items could be brought ON HANGERS, and/or if you could bring extra hangers, it would be very helpful. (If you mark the hangers with your name on a piece of tape, they can be returned to you at the end of camp.)

For costumes especially, it would be wonderful to have a short note about the item's origin, how you came to have it, age, etc.

There will be an area set up for the boutique in the dance hall, and helpers to take your items. If the item is valuable enough we will reserve it for the silent auction. We would appreciate it if you could (even in advance) fill out a silent auction form (attached) and indicate the minimum bid that should be placed on the item. Of course all funds taken in will go to the June Camp scholarship fund.

Items not considered valuable for the silent auction will offered for immediate purchase with a suggested price.

At the end of the silent auction, any item that was not sold may be picked up by the person who brought it. If items are not picked up, they will be donated to Goodwill or a worthy charity.

Syllabus

The syllabus will be posted for download from Google Drive two days before camp. You may also bring a flash drive to camp; however we are trying to move to web-based transfer as much as possible. If you will require a printed copy, one can be made for you at an additional cost of $10 and should be requested on your registration form.

CDs and DVDs for sale

Željko will have a CD for sale for $15 with all the music for the dances he will teach at June Camp. These may be pre-ordered with your registration, and will also be available (in limited quantities) during the weekend. He also is arranging for a DVD made in Japan, produced by Fusae Senzaki Carroll, which contains most of the material he will teach in very clear form, to be available by pre-order, at just $25 per copy. 

Video Policy

Because most of 
Željko's material will be available on the DVD he is selling, Željko has asked that camper do not make their own videos of his teaching or review. Any dances he teaches which are not on the DVD will be videoed by designated people, and these videos will be made available shortly after camp through the Google Drive.  Dance exchange dances taught by other teachers may be freely videoed for personal use. June Camp will also provide videos of the Dance Exchange dances following camp.

Alcohol policy

Alcohol is not permitted in any of the public areas of the HSC unless bought from and served by NIU staff. Alcohol IS permitted in the hotel part of the HSC, so you can bring what you’d like and retire to your room for refreshments as needed (the benefit of being in one building!). All rooms in the hotel have refrigerators. We are tentatively planning to have one hospitality room (however it can only be one of the hotel rooms on the 2nd floor --  not anything larger, unfortunately). The hospitality room which will be stocked with a supply of snacks and drinks including beer, wine, and mixers. We are happy to have contributions to the hospitality room, either by bringing items to consume, or through a donation “to the costs of camp” which you can make, as in past years, when you total your registration or in the donation can in the room.

Recycling

We have asked to have recyclable or compostable serving ware for our meals, but this is just not possible at NIU. Knowing some of you are bothered by this, you may consider bringing your own refillable water bottle or travel cup to use for beverages, or even your own flatware, if you prefer that to plastic.
