Hello from the Community Board Game Network!  We are looking for board game designers, vendors,  artists, and sponsors.

Great Escape on the Lake is a family friendly Board Game Convention and Geek Adventure Camp!

Join our public Facebook group *Click Here*

It’s great for keeping up on announcements, planning with other attendees, and asking questions.  It’s also our primary form of timely communication prior to and during camp, including changes to schedules, and other general announcments.

Interested in joining us as a vendor?

Cost: $25 non-refundable administrative fee.  Great Escape on the Lake is a not-for-profit event. 100% of all funds go toward this annual event.  Would like free advertising in our convention booklet?  A donation of any size to the raffle will get your logo in the convention booklet and on our website, and may be shared on social media (larger ad spaces available for donations > $50).

Board Game Designers may request an indoor space for an 8’ table (~ 8’ x 6’ space in the dining hall or chapel as available). Children 9 and under are free for vendors. Additional admissions, beyond the two free ones, are $50/event, $15/day, and $5 Sunday.

Not Included: Tent, tables, and chairs (available for rent); sites do not have electricity (please add electric as an optional amenity if you will require electricity, and we will run an extension cord to your vendor site prior to your arrival).
