About skucamp

skucamp is not your typical promotional products conference.

It’s a community, a think tank, a creative-fest, a jam session, and a business bootcamp all rolled into one very full, action-packed day.

Hosted by commonsku, skucamp is a one-of-a-kind experience led by entrepreneurial leaders, industry mavericks, and outside experts.

Over the course of 2 action packed days, you’ll think alongside some of the most progressive pros in the business, learn high-impact lessons from the trenches, take a deep dive into building a successful agency, reinvent your brand, and scale your business for growth.

Over the years, skucamp has moved from Palm Springs to New Orleans & Pittsburgh. And now, we’re rollin’ into Brooklyn with a uniquely designed event tailored to the magic of the Ace Hotel in Boerum Hill.

Embrace the new revolution of branded merch and we’ll see you in the borough!



Mark Graham, Catherine Graham and all of your friends at commonsku

Ps. skucamp sells out quickly so don’t sleep on BKLYN!

What do I wear at skucamp?

skucamp is very casual… funky casual if you will. Dress for comfort, leave the formal suits and gowns at home. Air conditioning indoors may make it cool for some people so dress accordingly. Evenings may be cooler so bring a layer for any outdoor events.

Is there a required vaccination policy at skucamp?

No.

That said, we are closely following all NYC city and state guidelines as it pertains to vaccination and mask mandates.

We recognize that this situation is very fluid so much can change between now and skucamp in the Fall. With that in mind, we will adhere to the policies of our venue, The Ace Hotel as well as our venue partners in Brooklyn.

Is there a cancellation policy on my skucamp tickets?

Yes, we will issue a refund (less a 10% fee) if you cancel before August 1, 2022. We will happily transfer a ticket to a colleague for no fees at any time.

There are no refunds after August 1, 2022.

What should I pack?

  • Laptop and/or tablet (for the classes/workshops)
  • Comfortable clothes
  • Running shoes & workout gear
  • An open mind ready to embrace learning and adventure!

Be sure to leave some room for all the amazing skucamp merchandise you’ll receive! Here is our gift collection from skucamp Palm Springs to give you a sense of the wonders that await you :)
