Camp BCAMP Jan. 29-31, 2010 recap

The tranquil Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre in Parksville was the setting for this year's Camp BCAMP (January 29–31), where 50 magazine professionals stole away for information-packed sessions, networking, brainstorming, and for some, a dip in the spa's mineral pool.

Below is an overview of the weekend's sessions, along with some noteworthy points.

Crow Toes Quarterly has just been named the Best Magazine of 2008 in The Richmond Review's Best of Richmond awards.
