  • There are no stores near by and it is a big schlep to town. Try to bring everything you will need for the weekend, keeping in mind that all meals are provided.

  • There is no electricity in the cabins. Everything has to be battery powered, and no candles or oil lamps are allowed. The cabins can also be kind of dark, so having a battery powered lantern or two is a great idea.

  • Don’t forget that we are having a cabin decorating contest on Saturday during the social hour. Consider entering!
