There are 2, maybe 3, depending on things.

New questions via purple mooseage today:

Is there a spot left for winter bootcamp in 2019 and what is the deposit and cost for a 4-6 week program?

As it says at the top of our main bootcamp info page, and earlier in this thread, there are currently two spots open in the bootcamp. (Which might change soon with the number of recent inquiries.)

Also as it explains in both the main page and this thread, the cost is $100.00, for any amount of time.

The bootcamp program is next starting up February 2, 2019.

Is there a specific amount of time that is recommended to come and work?

I recommend reading through the FAQs on the main bootcamp info page, to get a bit more of a feel for what it's like here. Listening to podcasts is also highly recommended.

In my opinion, one week might be a bare minimum, just to learn what we do (as mentioned a few times, the podcasts give you a jump on this), where things are, how to use certain tools or equipment, etc. so that a boot starts to feel like they are getting the hang of things. Two weeks is better. More time is even better still.

Currently, we do not have a set schedule of what experiences might be available when. Fred does an amazing job in so many respects and provides excellent leadership for a hands-on, hardworking experience. At the same time, there are priorities that might make it so that quite a few weeks in a row in winter could be spent on primarily one task. For example that one task for a few weeks could be something like thinning the woodlands, possibly limbing or peeling logs/junk poles, with some snow plowing thrown in. In other words, it could be a bit tedious - it is called "bootcamp" after all!

Some boots like to schedule their time here to coincide with workshops. We hope to announce our main 2019 workshops soon.

I hope that helps!
