TFE 2016 Recordings

During previous Encampments it was common for all classes and keynotes to be audio recorded with the ability to purchase CDs and MP3s of those recordings. This year that was unfortunately not possible. However, some class sessions and all of the Keynote speakers were recorded.

The recordings are being added now on Youtube and can be found here.

This year's encampment will again be held at the Tahoe Valley Campground which is located at 1175 Melba Dr., South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.

Tahoe Valley Campground - RVs and Tent Campers

To make a reservation at Tahoe Valley Campground (for both RVs and tent camping) please call (877) 717-8737. Be sure to make your reservation right away as we are competing with the public for campsites!

Important Note!

Because of the way that the reservations are structured, if you plan to attend for the entire camp, it is better to make a reservation for a full 7 days (through Saturday). The reason for doing this is twofold:

1. This allows for a "7 Day Discount". Any reservations less than 7 days are charged the "al a carte" rate. This can mean that a 6-day reservation can cost more than a 7-day one!

2. This allows more time to help the Encampment with the take-down on Friday. Instead of the stress of having to pack up camp on Friday morning before joining the Encampment for classes and speakers, you can focus on these activities and are free to help with the take-down. You can then focus upon your own camp at your lesiure or even enjoy another evening in Tahoe!

It is also important to note that this does not include the overall encampment discount. This discount is applied when you check-in at the Tahoe Valley Campground, so it does not need mentioned when placing your reservation over the phone.

So, there is not just one, but two discounts when reserving for the entire week. Please take this into consideration as you make your reservations this year.

Motel 6 - Motel Lodgers

To make a reservation at Motel 6, please call (530) 542-1400, select Option #3, and ask for Cindy or Adam.

Motel 6 offers both a 10% discount on room reservations, and also will only charge the rate for ONE adult, event if up to FOUR adults are staying together. Just be sure to identify yourself with the Tahoe Family Encampment to receive these discount. Plan to make your reservation right away as rooms cannot be held and we are competing with the public!
