2022 Information

The 2022 Westwind registration form is open from 3/1-4/1. (If you click this link outside of this timeframe, it will not be available.) You’ll be notified by the second week in April if you were picked by the random number generator. Use the links at the top of this page to learn more about Westwind weekends.

Lottery Process

Most years more people want to attend Westwind than there are spots. This means that we need to have a lottery to fairly determine who can attend. Here’s the general process:

  1. We use a Google form to gather information on preferences for folks who want to attend Westwind.
  2. We export the responses to a spreadsheet and use a random number generator to rank the order of all the responses.
  3. We take a pass at filling spots based on weekend and preference. (We hold spots for interns, onsite hosts and the coordination team.)
  4. We try to place families with younger kids closer to the main lodge, if possible.
  5. We try to place families of kids in the same grade together, if possible.

Note: In the past we’ve tried to accommodate requests for cabin mates, but in order to balance the numbers and keep the camp at full capacity, we can no longer take requests. Learn more about the cabins.
