Every thing is in place! Check out all the details, pack up your stuff and plan on a great weekend!
THURSDAY ARRIVALS: You may begin arriving at 2:00 pm on November 6. Remember it's bare bones...no food, no drink, no service! But there is a bed and scrapbooking space all to yourselves! What more could you ask for?
FRIDAY ARRIVALS: You may begin arriving at 2:00 pm on November 7. We will have unlimited pop, water, tea and coffee beginning this night but no supper.
The camp will provide bed linens, pillows, two sets of towels per room and a bar of soap!
Music...the camp has a sound system that I'm allowed to use! I will accept any suggestions for music (except for Rap...that is just noise and not music) to put into a play list. If you do not give me suggestions it will be my pick! So send some titles/artists my way. PLEASE DO NOT PLAY MOVIES, MUSIC OR SKYPE without the use of personal headphones. I'll plan to have an easy listening play-list for the day and a more "classically slanted" selection for those of us staying up past 11:00 pm!!
The parking lot is located in the rear of the building as well as the entrance to our scrapbooking room. Please plan to unload everything at this door. I will try to get a map of the campus uploaded before the retreat. The entrance to the camp has been moved and was a little confusing last fall.
Friday supper will be on your own. There are quite a few local restaurants to chose from which are only 5 minutes away from camp.
The camp will be providing Saturday breakfast, Saturday supper and Sunday brunch. Fountain drinks, water, coffee and tea will also be available for the entire weekend.
Snacks are welcomed and appreciated. Remember that there is no refrigerator available to keep things cold. The camp is also extremely picky about crockpots, something about needing proper temps, only running for 4 hours, blah, blah, blah...I lost interested. So basically forget snacks that require a crock pot!
The camp has a very strict policy on alcohol, drug and cigarette usage on campus. NONE of them are allowed. If they even find use of these products in the trash cans (empty wine bottles or cigarette remains) I will be fined $250 for cleaning and an extra $100 for the violation. That means I will be passing along those lovely costs to YOU! So leave the treats at home...
I will have scrapbooking supplies on hand from Close To My Heart. If you need something specific please let me know ahead of time.
Above all...DO NOT FORGET YOUR PHOTOS!
See you next week!
