Explore with us at Camp COCO

The first-ever weekend retreat for members (and friends) of Fueled Collective!

Did you go to summer camp as a kid? Now imagine all the fun of outdoor activities, bonfires, s’mores. Take away the bad stuff, like swirlies and poison ivy. And then add in great speakers, workshops, craft beer and cocktails. Oh, and locate it up on the North Shore of Lake Superior. That’s the recipe for Camp Fueled Collective.

Camp Fueled Collective is a multi-sensory mashup of adventure, exploration and edutainment. We designed Camp Fueled Collective as an experience that allows you to take the time to really contemplate that idea, dream or business that occupies your thoughts – and to learn from others that have gone before.

Check out the speaker lineup!
We were looking for inspiring keynote speakers, people who’ve done amazing things by exploring, experimenting and taking risks. And we found them: world-famous polar explorer Will Steger, Geek Squad founder Robert Stephens, local creative impresario Chris Cloud, the rebel CEO Nancy Lyons (always a crowd favorite) and Greg Burdulis (bonus extra: watch Greg’s 10-minute TED talk and tell me if you’re not instantly overcome by peace and tranquility by watching him talk).

Learn from (and get to know) some noteworthy entrepreneurs
The surprising thing about most successful entrepreneurs is how little planning they did. Mostly, their stories are ones of inspiration, experimentation, failure, fine-tuning and lots of endurance. For Camp Fueled Collective, we wanted to get a bunch of people who’ve built cool things to talk about how they did it. Even if you’re not an entrepreneur yourself, I think you’ll find these first-hand “how I did it” stories fascinating and inspiring. So, who’s coming? The founders of some amazing businesses, including Bogart’s Doughnuts, Handsome Bicycles, Field Nation, Beer Dabbler and 11 Wells Spirits.

Camp Fueled Collective is an event for everyone!
We’ve designed this event for you, a dreamer, a creator, a doer. No matter who you are or what stage of business or employment you find yourself (growing, just launched, ideation stage, “someday over the rainbow” stage), this is an opportunity to give yourself undistracted time to:

  • Inspiration
  • Ideas
  • A dose of nature
  • Time with old friends and making new ones!

The Deets
Camp Fueled Collective will held from Friday Oct. 9 to Sunday, Oct. 11, at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Finland, MN. (But you don’t need to drive. We’ve arranged for motor coaches to whisk you there and back!)

One low price covers nearly everything!
It’s all inclusive except for the optional outdoor activities, like canoeing, rock climbing, ropes course, etc. Those are $10 each if you choose do to them. But other than that, your registration covers everything below:

  • Motor-coach transportation
  • Speakers & sessions
  • Food & lodging
  • Craft beers & cocktails
  • Camp Fueled Collective swag bag!

We’ve tried to keep the costs as low as possible. And if you’re a Fueled Collective member, you get a much better rate than non-members. Early-bird pricing is $369 for members and $469 for non-members until Aug. 31. Remember, it’s a business expense!
