Accommodations

Cabin beds are limited, so we encourage everyone to consider tenting. No food of any sort is allowed in cabins or tents due to the prevalence of bears and other critters.

Cabins do not have bathrooms. Campers will have access to all shared bathrooms and showers whether they stay in a cabin or a tent.

Cabins

Cabins are small and rustic, fitting 5-7 people. Only a few cabins have electricity, but outlets are available nearby. Indicate your desire for a cabin when you register and we will follow up with all requests. A few cabin spots are left unreserved on arrival.

Tenting

The woods of CTT are very magical and there is plenty of tenting space! When choosing your spot, please respect the tenting rules for everyone’s safety and in order to preserve the systems at CTT. See the Accommodations & Amenities section of the FAQ for tenting locations and rules.

Noise at Night

There are activities which produce late-night noise at Dance Camp. Check the schedule and map before selecting your sleeping location, if you need a quieter sleeping space at night.

Accessibility

At DNE, we try our best with limited resources to create an accessible and inclusive experience for anyone who would like to attend. If you have access needs or concerns that would affect your ability to attend Camp, please check the FAQ page and the Accessibility and Inclusion page to learn more about what we have available, and how to apply for accessible accommodations when you register.

Food at Camp

All food at Camp is vegetarian, using organic and local ingredients when possible. We eat together in a beautiful dining hall and at outdoor picnic tables. We can accommodate most special dietary requests; visit the FAQ page for more info.

Chores

Chores are love in action, where you meet new people and keep Camp affordable. Everyone at camp help makes camp happen! When you check in, Chores can guide you to find tasks that are right for you.

Wellness, Health, and Safety

DNE’s goal is for everyone to be 100% healthy! Please do your part to protect and love all of DNE.

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Always wash your hands before entering the dining hall, as well as after using bathrooms and porta-potties.
  • Wear closed-toed shoes for all kitchen shifts, and hair pulled back or covered (mandatory).
  • Check for ticks at least once every 24 hours.

A healthcare professional provides advice and first aid several hours each day.

Camp’s self-service 24/7 Wellness Center has basic conventional and alternative first aid supplies, including: over-the-counter medications, a refrigerator for medications (only), electric tea pots, hot packs, and ice packs.

2024 Covid Policy

Our intention: to create a Covid policy that supports both new and returning campers to attend and participate in DNE Dance Camp 2024 as fully as possible while recognizing that at this point in time, emphasis needs to shift to individual assessment of risk factors.

  • If you are sick in any way, please defer or delay coming to Dance Camp.
  • Take a rapid test if you have any Covid symptoms.
  • If you test positive for Covid, stay home until you test negative or until 10 days have past since your symptoms began. We will honor refunds for participants who miss Camp due to Covid.
  • Please bring N-95 or KN-95 masks and test kits to camp for your personal use.
  • Please test for Covid if you have respiratory symptoms at Camp.
  • Remember to act responsibly if you become ill at Camp: isolate, wear a mask, and seek guidance from the Wellness Center.
