<li>Michele Hovet, Deputy City Manager for Arvada Colorado and CityCamp vet, put together a great Storify of the event. (Jason mentions it in his story). <a href="http://storify.com/michelehovet/citycampco-2012">See the Storify recap.</a></li>
<li>Michele, Scott Primeau, and I also talked to Kristy Fifelski of GovGirl on How to Host a CityCamp? which highlighted CityCamp Colorado. <a href="http://www.govtech.com/govgirl/How-to-Host-a-CityCamp.html">Check out the GovGirl video.</a></li>
<li>We also worked with Denver's Channel 8 (the City's news and information channel) to produce a short 4-7 minute piece on CityCamp Colorado 2012. Once it is available, I will share it with everyone.</li>
I hope all of this coverage and information will help advance or improve your camps. Please let me know if you have questions.
