Lodging

Adventure Weekends are held in Pomfret, Connecticut. (Directions are mailed to all registered participants.)

"Life is short and sometimes boring, and when else are you going to run around in the gorgeous woods, fight monsters, make friends, challenge yourself, and have a badass, magical adventure?!"
- 2011 Participant

Each 6-person group of participants is lodged in a separate rustic wooden cabin. These one-room structures aren't heated, nor do they have electricity. We provide lanterns for each cabin.

Wooden bunk-beds serve as sleeping accommodations. The bunks hold camp mattresses, which we provide; participants bring their own sleeping bags. Early autumn in Connecticut can experience a wide range of temperatures; if your sleeping bag isn't an insulated one, you might want to bring an extra blanket or two. (The information packet you'll receive after registering contains a packing list to remind you about this.)

Most groups are co-ed, and as mentioned, the cabins are one open room. Some people wear long underwear, turtlenecks, and/or leggings under whatever else they're wearing and then simply sleep in this underclothing. Others change in the nearby bathrooms or just rely upon the darkness of the cabins to provide a modest changing environment.

Bathrooms are a 1-2 minute walk from the cabins, and this area is lit, so you don't need to hunt for a flashlight if you venture out in the middle of the night. The bathrooms are standard camp ones; they won't win any style awards, but they're clean and indoors.

There are also a limited number of shower-stalls in the bathrooms. Some participants choose to shower in the mornings, others shower on Friday before they arrive and wait till they're back home to shower again.
