Official description:

LibCampNYC is for librarians, library staff, and students interested in sharing with and learning from a vibrant community of their professional peers. As with most “unconferences,” participants at LibCampNYC will be expected to share their work, skills, or knowledge as active participants. LibCampNYC is a participatory user-generated “unconference” focusing on libraries and library technology. It inherits a rich tradition from other unconferences and BarCamps, in which the content of the sessions is determined and managed by attendees. Sessions may include (but are not limited to): software demonstrations, how-to workshops, spirited debates, paper presentations, or problem-solving sessions. Participants will determine the day’s offerings in the opening session, and all sessions will be summarized in the closing session. This collaborative environment presents unique opportunities for learning, sharing, and relationship-building that can be elusive at more formal conferences.

LibCampNYC is organized by METRO and the Brooklyn College Library and follows on the success of Library Camp NYC, which convened in August 2007 at Baruch College.

I think the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN,  is tentatively holding a Library Camp on August 25, although I haven't found any details for it online yet.
