Boot Camp Agenda

Boot Camp Registration (evening before Boot Camp begins): 
Friday evening, 18 February

  • Arrivals | All Day:
    People will be arriving to the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak throughout the day and can check directly into their rooms when they arrive. Remember, that official check-in isn't until 16:00 (4 pm) - so come ready to be pleasant and kindhearted if your room isn't available if you arrive early. The hotel said, IF your room is ready and open they would be happy to get you in sooner.
  • Boot Camp "Check-In"
    Starting that evening there will be a #WLPC registration table set up in theto check in all Boot Camp attendees. This will be when you receive your name badge, receive any additional instructions and find out exactly where your class (and breakfast) will be held for the next 3 days.  

    ***If you miss us this first night - don't worry, we will be set up the next morning as well to help get you checked-in.
  • Boot Camp "Reception" | Later that same evening:
    As soon as you check in with me, you are invited to hang out for a time of connecting with other "boot campers". We will have a cash bar available if you want to buy a drink while you meet with others.

Day 1 & 2 of Boot Camp: Saturday, 19 February & Sunday, 20 February

The schedule is the same for both Saturday & Sunday.

  • Breakfast:
    Our own private breakfast buffet will be available for all Boot Campers. You can grab breakfast at your convenience (check the schedule for official times & locations), just be wrapped up with breakfast before class begins.
  • Boot Camp Classes Start:
    Make sure you are in your seat, ready to go before your class begins. There is a full day of learning planned, and we need to make the most of each minute.
  • Boot Camp Sessions all day:
    Boot camp classes will run all day. We of course have several breaks throughout the day as well as a lunch break.
  • Boot Camp Dinners: "Get on the bus"
    Because our group has grown too large for all of us to meet together at one restaurant we will be providing all boot camp attendees with money for your dinners on Saturday & Sunday evenings.

    We will meet in front of the Conference Center Lobby after boot camps both evenings to board charter buses that will be transporting us to an off-site location for dinner. The hotel is a little further away from a nice concentration of restaurants so, we'll be heading to the Desert Sky Ridge Shopping & Dinning Center about 20 min from the hotel to allow you to choose your own place to eat on both nights.

    The buses will be pick us up to take us back to the resort starting at 8:30 pm (first bus at 8:30 pm, second at 8:45, and last bus at 9:00 pm) If you miss one of the 3 buses you will need to get an Uber/Lyft/Taxi back to the hotel.

    P.S. we won't be paying for your ride back if you miss the buses :)

Day 3 of Boot Camp: Monday, 21 February

The all day schedule is the same as Saturday and Sunday. The only difference is in the evening, we are not providing you dinner. Instead we will be hosting our evening reception as we welcome the rest of the #WLPC attendees who are joining us for the Main Conference.
