We will spend all of our nights in cabins at Golden Bell in Manitou Springs, CO. There is no need to bring an air mattress or sleeping pad, the mattresses at Golden Bell are very nice. We will always separate girls/guys sleeping areas, but we do require modest clothing be worn to bed. We will have specific bed times each night and will hold to these strictly so we are well rested in the midst of a full schedule.
We will have team competitions during camp, so we strongly encourage everyone to pack clothing in their team color. Mt. Massive = yellow, Tabeguache = green, Bross = purple and Little Bear = Blue. Bring facepaint, crazy socks, wigs, hats, shirts, shorts, tights, shoes- we go all out!
