Since Friday’s sessions will only be taking place in the morning, we have put together some group activities in the afternoon. These activities will give you a chance to socialize and collaborate with fellow WordCamp attendees, with many giving you the opportunity to experience all that beautiful downtown Ann Arbor has to offer.
After lunch, anyone interested in joining a group will meet back at the Cube (next the Michigan Union) at 2pm. From there, you will follow your group leader to the destination. If you are running a little late, don’t worry! As long as the activity you choose does not have a specific start time (tours), you can meet up with the group whenever you choose.
We may still be adding additional activities, and will have the complete list available at the registration table on Friday morning. Whether you are a seasoned developer, a beginner blogger, or anything in between, we encourage you to use this time to get to know the other members of the WordPress community!
Group Leader: Ross Johnson

Get some fresh air and exercise while working on your backhand! Spend the afternoon playing a friendly game of tennis with your fellow WordCampers.

If you don’t see an activity that interests you (or just want to have even more fun!), take some time to explore the city. The scavenger hunt will take you all around town as you discover some things that make Ann Arbor unique. This is photo-based activity, so make sure your phone or camera is charged and ready to go. Be prepared to show your photos on Saturday, as you’ll have the opportunity to claim some great prizes from our generous WCA2 sponsors! For more information, check out the Scavenger Hunt page.
