PLEASE stay home if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms for a full refund. You will also receive a full refund should the retreat be cancelled altogether.

A Wi-Fi signal is in various locations around camp. Because of camp’s remote location and availability of high internet speeds, video or music streaming is not available.
