Answer

When you check in at camp, you can make payment for your lodging for the weekend which is $70/ person/ night. Children under 12 stay for free. Cash or credit card work.

The cabin you are assigned to will have bedding, including sheets, blankets, a pillow, and towels in a bag, ready for you to choose the bed you would like to sleep in. * For your comfort, you are encouraged to bring extra bedding if you tend to sleep cold. They will supply 2 blankets/ person so you should be good. (if you need a third, they'll provide) * If you want more than one pillow you can bring one for yourself. * Hair dryer, hair styling tools * Charger (there are outlets in the cabins) * See the FAQ above - "What should I bring to enjoy camp?" for more information.
