Join your colleagues for a night of fun under the Vancouver stars! Or the next best thing: Camp ASHG.

Camp ASHG invites you to take the night off and let your inner child run free (and network)! Attendees and exhibitors will be welcomed into an outdoor-themed room complete with trees, fire pits, Adirondack chairs, and picnic tables. Enjoy fun activities like life-sized nostalgia games, native-inspired jewelrymaking, ‘green screen’ photos in the Canadian wilderness, souvenir caricatures, and more!

This event is open to all ASHG attendees.
