This is a great opportunity to connect, share, teach, learn, and expand their personal learning network. It is schedule right before school starts, so it is a great way to get back into the "swing of things" and get some great ideas and resources for the coming school year.
Here is a great article by Mary Beth Hertz on Edcamp and the unconference idea.

I've been to a few Edcamps, including EdCampCT, and always enjoyed them, learned a lot, and made some great connections.
Here is a calendar of all EdCamps scheduled so far. http://edcamp.wikispaces.com/complete+edcamp+calendar
