Tell me more about the Cabins and the Community Space...
Participants will be two to a cabin. We have 19 cabins on site. Each participant will have their own toilet, shower, and sink. The cabins will continue to house all of the bunk beds that are traditionally in the cabin, but participants are permitted to arrange the beds however is most comfortable. Our cabins do not have closets. Participants are permitted to bring personal belongings.
There are two spaces for the community. One will be a "quiet" space for online learning, studying, tutoring. We have upgraded our internet to handle all 38 participants being online and streaming at one time. The other community space will be for community "hangout". In this space we will include a fridge and microwave for community use and there will be plenty of space to maintain social distancing. Both Community Spaces are open 24/7 to the participants.
Both community spaces will be set up to maintain social distancing protocols.
