This is our “break out” meeting. Meaning that we are generally grouped into teams working on projects. You will have the opportunity to learn more about what we do through a quick orientation, get connected to a project, discuss how to start your own project or connect with our leadership team.
You can learn more about our projects at http://brigade.opencharlotte.org. If you create a profile you can connect to a project and we’ll email you an invite to our Slack.

ENTRANCE AND PARKING: The entrance to Camp North end is at 1830 Statesville Ave. Once you're inside Camp North End: Follow signs for The Mount! Follow the driveway all the way down to the end. There will be shipping containers on your right, TURN RIGHT and then take your immediate LEFT JUST after the shipping containers. Follow that road around the bend and you'll see the 2nd area with patio furniture and lights. Park anywhere near there and look for the black and yellow building. We're in there! Still not sure?
