Location: Afton State Park– about a half hour from the Twin Cities
Date: Friday-Saturday, Dec 13-14: We will make wreaths on Saturday morning.
Hostel-style/single room accommodations: Rustic camping, everyone piles in bunks in the same room, like a sleepover. Yurt is heated by woodstove only, so please be comfortable sleeping in and dressing in layers for the duration of the trip. There are three bunks with six beds total; so I am taking a max of five registrants. You will need to bring your own bedding and toiletries. It may be “co-ed” – people of all gender identities are welcome. There is no electricity; there are vault toilets nearby the yurt. If you need more privacy or amenities/aren’t used to camping, this event may not be a great fit for you. See yurt info on the MN State Parks page.
Potluck dinner: Guests are asked to bring something small to share-– it doesn’t have to be fancy, and remember, there will only be six of us. Do keep in mind, no electricity means heating is available only on the campfire outside.
Provided breakfast: I will provide a spread of fresh fruits, nuts, pastries, and we can make coffee/tea over the fire outside.
Parking: the lot is located a short distance away; all vehicles need state park permits- you can purchase them for $7 if you don’t already have a 2019 one. Hopefully people register with buddies and carpool, as parking is limited. If you do want to have a buddy come, I’d suggest registering at the same time since space is also very limited.
