Membership Fees
There are no membership fees for joining the Summerlands. However, there are fees for classes, seminars, real-time Terraspace gatherings or goods and services  purchased in the marketplace.

Classes and Seminars
Throughout the year, The Summerlands will be offering many classes that we think will be of interest to our members. The breakout is as follows:

6 Week Class:
Members - $30.00
Non-members - $40.00

8 Week Class:
Members - $50.00
Non-members - $60.00

Classes consist of:
Weekly live ANYMEETING sessions (2 hours)
A private section for Students Only where all the class materials are posted.
Availability of discussion on section message board throughout the week.
When applicable... pre session information sent via email to students.

Some classes might require outside materials.  Whenever possible, we will provide the reading materials, but students are responsible for purchasing their own crafts supplies or additional books that they might need/want for a particular class. (e.g., a drop spindle and wool for learning to spin in an Enchanted Hands Craftguild class.)

To find out which classes are currently available, are scheduled for the future, or have been taught in the past, please refer to the Class Registration area on the Crossroads (located directly to the left of the Member Registration form button).   You might also refer to the Main Calendar to see if there are any classes scheduled that you might enjoy taking.  These classes can be paid in any of the previously mentioned 4 methods, but they must be paid in full no later than the 2nd week of the class.  Payment in advance is appreciated.

Some of our students cannot make the actual 'live chat' due to time constraints, however, they still receive value for the class in that all the materials and transcripts are made available to them via a private message board and emails and they can ask questions/get individual attention from the instructor via those avenues just as easily as they can in live chat class.  We usually have at least 1/3 of our students for any given class taking it via 'correspondence' style.

Financial Aid List
The Summerlands has always been more concerned with people and our community than with cash.  If a person really wants to belong to the community and honestly cannot afford fees for classes or seminars, email Searles and we'll see about putting them on the Financial Aid list until their situation improves and they can afford the tuition.  We've all been through lean times and we don't want class fees or tuition standing in anyone's way if they honestly can not afford it.  We use the Honor System here.  Talk to us.

The Marketplace
We are so happy to be able to announce that The Hilmaine Marketplace is open for business!!!  Currently, we have:

  • The Rowan Leaf - Books, Music and Videos:  The Rowan Leaf is an associate of, IBS and CDNow.  Plus, we are working to get our own books and materials for sale there on a direct basis.

We have all kinds of plans and ideas for things to put in the shops and stores that we want to add to the marketplace, but we figured we'd start with these and get our feet wet before adding any more to the mix.  Let us know what kind of items you'd like to see in the shop.  Our only requirement is that they be first class all the way, and preferably not found on every other Celtic/Pagan site on the net.
