Note: This will be a non-smoking retreat. Vaccination to prevent COVID is required. Please contact the registrar if you need to request a vaccination exemption.

Arrival on May 2 (after 4pm) at the retreat center is an additional $125 and includes a simple breakfast on May 3. Lunch on May 3 for early arrivers will be a simple meal prepared by volunteers; local restaurants are also available for those who arrive with their own transportation.
The retreat center provides all sheets, blankets, pillows, and bedding for their lodges and winterized/heated cabins. To prevent the introduction of bed bugs or other pests into this environment, the center prohibits participants from bringing their own bedding, with the exception of pillows. The center allows personal pillows but only if you agree to use their approved pillow cases (rental fee of $10, price subject to change).
Fully vaccinated is defined as having received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or the single dose J&J vaccine, and their booster shots (if suggested by the CDC) at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the retreat.
Final accommodations will depend on the number of individuals who elect the various options. Campers will choose a rate along the double occupancy sliding scale. Those who select the single room option will select a rate along the single room sliding scale.
Camping in Non-Winterized Wood Huts
There are also two non-winterized wood huts. These provide private but rustic accommodations.
They each have a bed (without bedding), but only screens for windows, and power is supplied only by an extension cord. (All other cabins have beds with bedding, glass windows, and power outlets.) Nights can be cold in May. Occupants of the non-winterized wood huts must provide their own bedding: sleeping bag, extra blankets, sheets, pillow, bath/hand towels, flashlights and/or battery operated lantern with extra batteries. The non-winterized wood huts are not air-tight, so you will need to be equanimous with the possible presence of bugs in those rooms. It may be possible to arrange in advance to rent bedding from the center, but these huts are best for participants who are arriving by car and can easily bring their own bedding.
