We are sorry, but park rules state that "
Pets are not permitted within buildings or other enclosed structures on site. Only seeing-eye dogs are permitted in overnight facilities or near swimming areas. Pet owners are responsible for any injury or damage caused by their pets. Dogs and other pets are not allowed to run freely on park property.
Will you be bringing a seeing-eye dog to camp?
How are you traveling to camp?
Flying or other public transportation
We provide bedding for those staying in the dorms who are flying in or coming by other public transportation ONLY.
If driving, we must ask you to bring your own sleeping bag, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc.
Three meals a day, plus always-available snacks and beverages, will be served at the gathering. Vegetarian options will be available at each meal but please note that dairy products and eggs will often be used even in vegetarian dishes.
We will have some vegan and gluten-free choices available at each meal, but cannot produce full vegan or gluten-free meals.
If you have dietary needs that our menu can't accommodate, we recommend bringing food that meets your requirements. Refrigerator space and microwave ovens are available to those bringing their own food, but kitchen space is too limited to allow individuals to cook their meals. Please bring only ready-to-eat and microwaveable foods.
