How big is the tent?
We provide a 6 person tent.
Is there dangerous wildlife?
The wildlife in the parks is generally not dangerous, but remember that you should respect all wildlife; the park is their home and we are visitors.
Can I take a shower?
Yes, unless specified all the parks have hot showers and toilets.
When do I receive my pre-trip materials?
We send the pre-trip materials immediately after you make your reservation. If you register within a week of your workshop, pre-materials can be downloaded from our website.
May my family leave the park to eat dinner?
Sure, we encourage families to use the skills they have learned to cook outdoors, but families are always free to leave if they feel the need.
Can I have my money refunded to me?
All deposits are non refundable; however, we will allow you to change to another State Park Workshop as long as we are notified 10 business days prior to the arrival date.  Cancellations within 10 business days will result in a loss of payment; unless appropriate documentation is provided.
