Good to Know:

  • It is very windy living by the lake, and rainy - you will often be walking 'camp' style grounds through gravel, dirt and grass, so consider packing waterproof shoes and warm, waterproof layers.

  • Students must supply their own twin-size sheets, blankets, comforter, pillow and towel.

  • There are free laundry facilities available near the dorms, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Storage space is limited, but there is room for storage underneath the outside deck, and under the beds, and a wardrobe is provided for every student.

  • Wireless Internet access is available for student use in the Fireside Café and Student Lounge, but not in the dorms.

  • Students may bring personal laptops for use outside of the classroom, but they are not required.

  • Students are welcome to remain in dorms during Holiday breaks, although meals during those times cannot be guaranteed if they are not specifically scheduled to work. (does not apply to International Interns)

  • Students are free to leave campus whenever class or work are not scheduled. We require an overnight sign-out for emergency purposes only.
