Welcome to the SSSP 2019 Homepage!

This year’s SSSP runs over the September long weekend. We are planning on opening registration around April 7, and if you are on our mailing list, then you will automatically receive an e-mail when we open. (See camping instructions below.) If you are not, or don’t think you are on our e-mail list, or your e-mail changed in the last year, send us a message anytime at to get on to the list. Check this page often for updates!

FOR THE COMPLETE STAR PARTY MENU, click the red MENU button at the upper left of this page (items will appear as they are updated).

The SSSP 2018 Group photo (and past group photos) can be found in "Galleries | SSSP Group Photos" under the Menu.


We are pleased to announce our confirmed speakers for this year:

Other guests and additional information will be posted as information becomes available.


Our room block at the Resort runs from Wednesday August 28 through Saturday August 31 nights. There is a mix of hotel rooms, townhouses (2 and 3 bedroom) and cabins (2 and 3 bedrooms). BOOK YOUR RESORT ACCOMODATION as soon as you can. We will be releasing rooms back to the Resort sooner this year than in previous years.

Contact the Resort at 306-662-4477. Additional information about the Resort is available at their website.


Once Star Party registration opens about April 7, we will provide instructions on how to request a campsite numbers as request from e-mails.

To be fair to everyone, campsites are issued on a first-come first serve basis STARTING ON THE DATE WE OPEN REGISTRATION, so we WILL NOT be taking bookings for a specific campsite before we officially open registration, and will ignore all requests received beforehand. Once you receive an assignment from us you are booked for Star Party nights, but you can then attempt to book extra nights for your site through Reserve-a-Site starting April 16. Note that 60% of the most-preferred SSSP campsites booking in the first 48 hours of registration opening. But we do have 108 powered sites and room enough for over 100 overflow (non-powered) campers/tenters, so we can always accommodate you right up to the date of the Star Party.

Starting this year, you will need to present your paid camping receipt in order to pick up your registration package.
