2018 Gathering Registration

The registration process is a two-step process. Everyone attending must both register and make payment, which are two separate links. Please click on the Register link below, and click on the correct Payment link for the type of lodging you are selecting.

Prices below are per person and include gathering fees, lodging and meals. If you are selecting the in-door lodging, we will provide you the most private space possible, though you may end up sharing a Casita with others.  When you register, please indicate someone you would like to room with.

Deposit for All Registrations $100
Camping Member $270 ​
Camping Non-Member $300
In-door Lodging Member $350
In-door Lodging Non-Member $380

We realize the prices are about $50 higher than they were for our last US Gathering, but we think you will agree that the improvement in food and lodging quality make the increase worth it. We seem to have moved beyond the plastic meeting dome and camping in the desert, due to moving locations, the increased size of the gathering and a group that has more older members than in the past.

For many wilderness guides, following your passion in this work doesn’t always translate to making large sums of money. Please reach out if you have a longing to come to the gathering but might need some financial assistance. And for those who can, chipping in extra funds for scholarships can go a long way in assisting another WGC member in coming.

Scholarship Help to Attend
There will also be some partial scholarships available for those who need financial help to attend the gathering. Finances should never be the reason you don't attend! Please click here to fill out the scholarship application.
