As we all know, the cost of large-scale endeavors is hard to predict. Sometimes, more costs come up unexpectedly. When we started the ticket sale, we presented you with an estimate of the costs at that time. Divide that by the maximum number of participants and you get an average ticket price we had to meet to cover those costs. Those costs were already calculated conservatively, but reality beat us to it (one of the reasons is that we are going to have to produce all the electricity ourselves, another is water).
Thus, the new required average ticket price is up to 228 Euros, instead of 211 Euros. Alas, the current average is below that. That’s a problem, but no worries: The camp will take place, and it will not drive us instantaneous into financial ruin.
We want to give everyone the opportunity to attend the Camp and ask those who can afford a higher price category to actually buy such a ticket. If you already bought your ticket and want to upgrade it, you can do so by writing to camp2015-tickets(at)cccv.de, giving your user name, the desired upgrade, and the transfer reason (e.g. “camp15-abcdef12”).
That way, we can enable people who cannot afford an expensive ticket, but still – like everyone else – want to participate and contribute to an awesome Camp, to do so.
