CELL PHONES:

Cell phone use at Camp is discouraged. If you must use your cell phone, do so out of earshot of other campers - not in your tent, please.

ELECTRICITY:

While it is expected that we will have a charging station for phones and cameras and such small devices at this year’s camp, we suggest bringing a car charger for use while in the vans.

CAMP PHONE NUMBER:

Should someone need to contact you in the case of a serious emergency, such as might require your return home, please use your own cell phone as the first line of communication. If that is not possible, for emergencies during Camp, July 14 - August 11, 2018, the cell phone of the Camp Manager Nick may be used (617-967-8305).

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUTINGS AT THIS YEAR’S CAMP:

Although August Camp is primarily a hiking camp, we will also schedule some non-hiking excursions to scenic areas, and, if possible, some kayaking, biking and trail work activities. Visits to the San Juan Islands may also be offered. These extra activities may involve some extra charges, such as admission fees, or costs of an outfitter. In addition, it is perfectly ok to stay in camp for the day and relax with a book or your camera.

CAMP AND HIKE ELEVATIONS:

Our camp is located at about 300’ but our hikes will be in the 4000’ to 7000’ range. You may wish to select easier hikes until you feel acclimatized.

GENERAL:

There is a terrific website for all sorts of local information about events, services and businesses in the Concrete area - we suggest you explore this: http://concrete-wa.com

                 Have a safe journey and we’ll see you at Camp!
