About CampJS

CampJS isn’t a regular conference. It’s time and space to learn new things, relax and really connect. Whether you’re a Javascript veteran, total newbie, into art, music or hardware, there’s something for everyone.

We schedule a unique blend of expert-led content and self-directed learning and encourage attendees to run other activities like bushwalking, drone flying or knitting.

To get a vibe for the event, check out the videos from previous camps or our Twitter page.

Lord Somers Camp

We lodge at Lord Somers Camp which is located approximately a one hour drive from Melbourne, on the southern side of the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

We are perfectly located overlooking the beach and nestled in the local wilderness of Somers.

Surrounding our campsite the local area hosts fantastic wildlife parks, natural and indigenous vegetation, hot springs, local wineries, and heaps more.

Come and discover our fantastic campsite, visit us at the corner of Lord Somers Road & Parklands Avenue, Somers, Victoria, 3297 .
