    Who should attend? 

    We welcome baking professionals at any and every stage in their professional journey, as well as baking enthusiasts of all stripes.  We hope to fill Camp, though, with baking professionals who stand to benefit the most from our immersive and impactful Camp programming.  At this time, Camp Bread is open only to active Guild members.  

    How much does Camp cost? 

    Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we are able to offer our tickets at a more affordable rate compared to other events of similar scale and duration. Their financial contributions play a crucial role in offsetting the costs of Camp, making it accessible to a broader audience. And, we have created two tiers of ticket prices to encourage teams to attend Camp. 

    • First ticket:  $900 
    • Additional tickets at a 25% discount:  $675   
    • We're excited to introduce our "Buy One, Give One" (BOGO) ticket option priced at $1575. By choosing the BOGO ticket, you not only secure your spot at Camp but also enable someone who might otherwise be unable to afford it to join us. Your investment in a BOGO ticket contributes to our general scholarship fund for Camp, ensuring that more individuals can experience this incredible opportunity. Plus, for your generosity, $675 of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
    • All tickets receive the same access to all Camp programming.  Hands-on classes (full and half-day) are limited to two per camper.
    • A separate ticket is required for our Guildhall Gathering on Wednesday, March 6.

    If you are facing a financial barrier, please contact us at and we will work with you so that you can attend Camp Bread.
