Introducing Cabin Weeks: A New Path To Citizenship

Cabin Weeks are an introduction to coliving with Cabin and a streamlined path to Cabin Citizenship. They’re compatible with remote workers’ busy schedules so that you don’t have to take time off.

There are four Cabin Weeks scheduled for Fall 2023 - you can sign up for one here.

At a Cabin Week, you’ll join 6-10 other prospective community members and organizers for 1-2 weeks at flagship Cabin Neighborhoods. You will get a taste of curated coliving, with group dinners, local adventures, intentional co-creation, and free time baked in. Upon successful completion of a Cabin Week, you’ll be granted Citizenship.

Cabin Citizenship is a subscription membership to Cabin’s network city (a set of coliving neighborhoods in nature with fast internet and strong community). Citizenship includes access to our global properties, year-round coliving options, signature experiences (including Cabin Camp), and dozens of perks that you can access through cabin.city. You can read more about Citizenship perks on Twitter or on our Community Wiki.

Previously, prospective Citizens could participate in a Build Week to earn Citizenship for free. We decided to take the best parts of our former Build Week concept and expand on them to offer a new short-term experience called Cabin Weeks.

What’s a Cabin Week?

Cabin Weeks are an 1-2 week long introductions to Cabin coliving and culture. Some people want to try coliving but aren’t ready to immediately dive into a multi-month living experience in a new place. Cabin Weeks provide a lower barrier entry point for community members. They are a themed coliving experience at a Neighborhood where we:

  • Help participants learn about coliving before their first long-term Cabin experience.

  • Orient people to Cabin culture, lifestyle, values, wellness practices, and traditions.

  • Allow new and existing community members to connect and explore Cabin neighborhoods.

  • Co-create something together. Usually this will consist of building a structure, stewarding a land improvement project, or otherwise helping to improve neighborhoods.

  • Ensure that Citizenship is a good fit for both Cabin and Cabin Week participants

  • Allow focused time for folks to still complete work for remote jobs or work on personal creative projects.

Fall 2023 Cabin Week Schedule

What’s included?

Each Cabin Week includes food, housing, special programming and transportation to/from the nearest airport. Participants who complete a full Cabin Week and align with Cabin’s values will be granted a free first year of Citizenship ($400 value).

Who is it for?

Cabin Weeks are for remote workers curious to try out coliving and get to know Cabin’s culture before committing to living in the network for a longer period of time. Both prospective Citizens or existing Citizens can join.

Community dinners are a hallmark of coliving with Cabin

When are Cabin Weeks?

There are four Cabin Weeks scheduled this fall. They’re either 7 or 14 days long and typically begin with a Sunday arrival and end with a Saturday departure. Each Cabin Week has a different theme and focus.

These flagship neighborhoods will host our first four Cabin Weeks:

Elkenmist (Washington 🇺🇸) from September 24 - October 1

Skamokawa Valley, WA 🇺🇸

Description: Elkenmist is 125 acres of lush pastures and forests at the end of the road in Skamokawa Valley, WA, with nothing but wilderness behind it. This property shares the land with elk, deer, otters, coyotes, countless birds and beavers who build dams on two different creeks.

During this Cabin Week, participants will get a firsthand peak into what it takes to cultivate a regenerative neighborhood. Learn about rotational grazing, sustainable farming, and how introducing pioneer species to an ecosystem prepares the soil for long term abundance. Enjoy nature walks, hike an “experiential trail” and learn more about mushroom inoculation.

Cost: A Cabin Week at Elkenmist includes Cabin Citizenship, food, housing, unique programming, and transportation to/from the Portland airport. This week has two levels of cost, depending on your chosen accommodations:

During this Cabin Week, we’ll collaborate on a build project that will give you the chance to leave your mark on Cabin’s original neighborhood. Past build projects at Neighborhood Zero include a gym, a tiny cabin, a sauna, and more. It’s a great opportunity to step away from laptop work for a few hours to get your hands dirty. No experience with building is required — we love to help people learn new skills.
