Most successful camps like this do it by the sponsorship route. An experienced camp member has to sponsor someone into the group.

I'm really warming up to gaminwench's idea of setting up buddies, even if its one vet to a handful of virgins, and pushing each group of virgns to be as independant/self-sufficient as possible -- with the main group right there for advice and help when they need it.

Claun, I have done something like this. In 2007 I organized a Theme Camp with 25 members, and close to half of them were birgins. But most of them were people I already knew and personally recruited, and the rest were friends of theirs. So it turned out wonderfully.
Still, we wound up with two "hangers-on" who had no business participating (trying to participate) in BM. We decided "If we get stuck here until January, we eat those two first". So my recommendation is that you be careful about admitting strangers. Lots of people do not a good theme camp make. Good people who get along well do.
