About POC

Play On Con is the best of camp & con combined! We have all your favorite activities from conventions like 24hr gaming, cosplay, concerts, panels, and parties, as well as all your favorite summer camp activities such as archery, canoeing, swimming, and hiking. 


A full weekend pass (Thurs-Sun) is $65 in advance online.

A full weekend pass will be $80 on site and will be CASH ONLY.

We will also offer single day passes at the following prices.

  • Thursday Only: $15*

  • Friday Only: $35*

  • Saturday Only: $45*

  • Sunday Only: $10*

Single day passes will only be available for purchase on-site, on the day for which they are valid, and they will not expire until 9AM the following morning.


Currently not accepting applications.


We will not tolerate harassment of any kind.  This includes unwelcome advances, derogatory comments, and attempts to intimidate.  We reserve the right to revoke the membership of anyone caught harassing anyone else. We strive to create a safe and comfortable environment for everyone, and we expect all of our attendees to Play On well with others.  


You can become President of Play On Con! If you get elected President during one year, you'll serve as President the following year.  This will win you a lifetime membership to the con, as well as a free room and 5 full weekend passes for your cabinet members during the year of your Presidency.  You'll also get to pick the con's theme for the year, and you'll have an opportunity to shape various events. How do you win? It's simple: formulate a campaign (you'll be expected to announce your candidacy by Friday) and have the most POCmarks of any candidate by the time of the Cosplay Contest on Saturday night (where "votes" are tallied).


So, what are POCmarks? POCmarks are Play On Con's official currency! You can get them from completing Achievements, winning contests and competitions, and for generally being awesome. You can use them to support a run for President (see above) or you can spend them in the POC Store (a special area in the dealers room)! We'll have games, mystery boxes, and other awesome stuff you can buy there.


Want to volunteer with us? Great! We're always looking for more good help. Also, due to feedback from prior POCsters, we're now accepting part-time volunteers! You'll be rewarded for part-time hours with POCmarks.

  • Part-time volunteers (Minimum 4 hour shift) will win 10 POCmarks/hr.

  • Full time POC volunteers (12hrs+ over the course of the con) will get 150 POCmarks and a free full weekend pass.

If you know where you'd like to volunteer, feel free to reach out to that department's Director on our contact page. If you're flexible or unsure, email us at operations@playoncon.com, and we'll work with you to figure it out! We have a lot of roles behind the scenes that you may not have considered.


  • The 4-H Center has a dining hall that will serve 8AM-8PM on Friday/Saturday and 8AM-1PM on Sunday. They sell very basic "camp" meals like hamburgers, lasagna, etc. Plus you can buy drinks, chips, candy, etc. at the front desk. And none of this is at “hotel” prices!

  • We also have a pizza truck scheduled for 6P-12A on Thursday and 8P-12A on Fri/Sat.

  • The rooms do not have refrigerators. If you need something cold, we recommend a cooler. And the hotel ice machine can never keep up with us, so it’s best to load up before you arrive!

  • Paradise Point Marina, just across the street, runs a little restaurant and supply shop.

  • If you drive into Columbiana, we recommend Oaxaca!
