Here are the details for the 2018 Fall East Coast jam. Registration will be open in late August.

Official kickoff is Wednesday night, October 17 at 6:30 PM dinner. Jammers can begin arriving as early as 5:00. Contact us if you need to arrive earlier.

Our continuing mission: Sharing CI growth. Bring your whole dancing self, share quests and questions, explore!

See here for info about Claymont Court. See the East Coast Jam "About" pages to read about the jams and this site, in general. To register, follow the instructions on our registration page - but please see the jam-specific details, below, first. (A copy of this page is included in the right sidebar on the registration page.) Registration rates are organized around the actual costs, which vary depending on when and how you'll be attending!


  • The cost depends on your attendance and how soon you register.
  • A bed in a shared room and delicious meals are included in the charges. (Meals are vegetarian, and consist of simple breakfasts and full lunches and dinners.)
  • Blankets and pillow are included; sheets and towels are available for a small laundry fee, like $5 to $10 total.
  • Arranging to camp onsite reduces your cost by $20/night
    • Please let us know that you are camping when you register - use the "Special Attendance Notes" box.
    • You need to pay the difference if you wind up crashing indoors to escape weather, etc., and we might not have spare beds.
  • Children 11 and younger also get discounted food and lodging. Speak with the organizers (see below) to determine how that specifically affects your charge.

The basic rates for on-time registration, on or before September 30, depend on how many days you attend.

$400 Full Jam - Wednesday dinner through Sunday lunch
$335 3 nights - Thursday after lunch through Sunday lunch
$250 2 nights - Friday after lunch through Sunday lunch
  • You don't have to attend through Sunday. For example, your last day could be Friday or Saturday.
  • Registration must be for a contiguous sequence of days, you can't register to skip days in between.

The actual cost depends on both your attendance plans and how soon you register. Here are the registration deadline offsets, with an example total based full-time attendance price:

Increase Amt Payment Dates Adjusted cost for Full Attendance
$0 On or before Sunday, September 30 $400 - on-time registration
+$50 Monday, October 1 until Sunday, October 7 (incl.) $450 - late
+$75 October 8 until registration closes (likely Oct. 14) $475 - avoid this option, don't delay!

Camping instead of staying in the mansion: reduces the figures by $20 per night. (It also frees up beds in the mansion for other jammers, so more people can attend the jam.)

DEPOSIT = $50. The deposit is refundable until the first fee increase deadline. It's not refundable after that point. Paying in full in advance can simplify things some, and everything besides the deposit is refundable until jam attendance. The balance is due on arrival.


Workstudy is available, but get in touch with use promptly. Work study availability closes 2 weeks before the jam. Contact the workstudy organizer (see below) for details and arrangements.
