OK . . . Tell me about food and everything else. What's included?
The logistics of us providing food (as well as food prep issues with Covid) are just not feasible or safe.
Due to varied dietary needs, and food contact issues, it's better if bring what you like and prep it. There will be grills available.
BUT there are also local options. No need to cook too much if you don't want to.
Firewood: We will provide a bundle of firewood to start. If you want a super roaring fire you can pickup some extra at the small store.

Kids? Sure. If under 18 they are at no charge.

How do I pay?
Cost per person: Camping for 2 or 3 nights is $95 Per Person
https://py.pl/17vUnD

What if I have a +1 or +whatever? Cost is Per Person. Just do the payment link a 2nd or 3rd time. IF under 18 free.

What if I stay two nights. Is it less? No. You can stay as late as you want on Sunday before packing up. It gives us flexibility.

Refund if requested 2 weeks before event start. If less than 2 weeks: 100% Full Credit be applied to ANY future event we run.

Are you frustrated with "surveys" that organizers have you fill out so they can discriminate? Are they even proud of discriminating and proclaim it by saying they pick and choose and exclude? The proclaim they are the bouncer at the door to keep out who they wish to exclude. Discrimination is not something to be proud of or to proclaim as a good thing. Do not support discrimination in any way, or for any reason.

We do NOT discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, or even for belly button lint.
