Retreat participants will be staying in the farmhouse at Camp Wanakee. Double rooms are standard and single rooms can be reserved for an additional fee. Participants are also welcome to camp onsite, bringing their own camping and bedding equipment. The farmhouse is rustic but comfortable. There are 2 full bathrooms in the farmhouse with additional bathrooms and showers in the Rec Hall (right next door). Bedding is provided, but participants are encouraged to bring bath towels and toiletries. As it will be May, participants are encouraged to bring warm bed clothes should the temperature drop in the evening. A full packing list can be found here.
A Covid exposure at the retreat would be devastating to our organization. In order to protect participants, facilitators and staff, we require all participants to show proof of vaccination and take a rapid test (provided by the wild expanse) upon arrival. Please review the full policy here.
