- Do I need to have any prior experience camping/with any of the outdoor activities listed?
- Can I participate if I have medication/special needs/allergies/dietary restrictions?
- Can I bring my phone?
Our camps are purposefully screen free! We know this is a pretty wild experience for most of us, attached as we are to our phones, but the benefits of no-tech living are definitely worth it. Many of our campers reported *not* being on their phones was one of their favorite parts of the experience! We recommend that you bring your phone and we'll lock it up for safe keeping until rest-days when campers can access their phone. All leaders will have phones and caregiver's phone numbers on them at all times if there are any emergencies. And if for any reason campers need to have access to a phone during the camp, please request an exemption on the application, and we will figure out what works best.
- Can I bring a digital camera?
Yes, you can bring a digital camera that is not a smart device. We will ask that you keep it safely packed away until independent time and/or designated activities, e.g. hiking, rope courses, field trips.
- What will the bathrooms be like? Are there showers? Washer/Dryer?
At the main farm camp we have flushing toilets in three private/individual unisex bathrooms, plus a classy urinal trough, and (bonus!) a washer/dryer to wash your clothes! There are private outdoor showers with hot water for showering.
At the mountain camp, we use compost toilets. And guess what?! They're not stinky! Picture wooden outhouses, without the stink, and you've got the toilet situation at the mountain camp. We don't have showers at the mountain camp.
- How will I know what to bring?
- How should I travel to the camp?
- Will there be animals at the camp?
- About COVID-19
Given the completely outdoor and open-air setting our camp is naturally low risk for the transmission of air-born diseases. That said, with attendees flying in from all over the country, we want everyone involved to stay healthy and feel safe. Our current policy is that attendees will need to register a negative COVID-19 test within two days of arrival. We encourage COVID-19 vaccination and any other health precautions, however we will not require proof of vaccination or the wearing of masks to attend the camp. We recognize that the situation may change and require adjustments to our policies, in which case we will update all attendees accordingly.
