Venue & Accommodation
Participants are welcome to stay at Camp Pascobac for no charge. There are cabins available on-site on a limited basis. The cabins are bunk-style cabins that house roughly 8-10 people in bunk beds. These cabins will be available on a first come, first serve basis – so arrive early Friday evening if you’d like to a bed! Note that we cannot guarantee you will not be sharing a cabin with others. There is also plenty of space to set up tents on site. So, if you’d prefer to camp/tent, bring your gear!
Please note that there is no running water or cooking facilities in the cabins. Bathrooms are located in a separate building, as is the camp kitchen.
All participants should come prepared for a rustic weekend!
