I went last year and it was a lot of fun! I took classes with Bronwen Webber, Debbie Brown and Ruth Rickey. The classes I took were ones where all of the materials were included, which was important for me since I was flying to Vegas from MA. I thought the classes were excellent and excellent value for the money. I stayed at the Riveria - which I didn't like very much was clean and convienent. If you have the opportunity to go, I would definetly do it - I'd go again if I could afford it. Depending on the classes offered I might go again instead of taking a class in the fall with Elisa Strauss...we'll see.

Thanks for your reply. Glad you found it was money well spent! I would like to plan to attend in September aswell.

Does anyone know the cost, length of the itinerary for each day?
Anyone else been?

The classes range in price depending on who is teaching them, what is being taught, and whether supplies are included or not. As far as itinerary goes - you make your own. You sign up for whatever classes you want to take on the days they are offered. I took two classes each day.

So the length of the day depends on how long each class is, and how many you take... I get it. So there is no entrance fee? Just a pay as you go thing for each class?

Thanks for all your help. Just trying to get an idea what to expect, finances included icon_smile.gif

Do you sign up for whatever classes when you register at the door?

You have to join the California Cake Club to go and there is a registration fee. You do need to register in advance - most of the classes will fill up. If you go to the cake camp website, you can get more info.

vonnie99, since the website doesn't show cost for prior years, could you give us some idea of what it might cost for the classes? I would LOVE to go, but it might be something that I would have to plan for next year and start saving my pennies. icon_smile.gif

I just looked up my papers from last year - the classes I took were priced between $35 - $65. I took mostly figure modeling classes and all of the materials were provided. The three instructors I had class with were excellent and it was a lot of fun. I don't know how much the hotel stay cost but you can shop around for those prices.
