Camp Lapihio at Umstead State Park has three and four person cabins, divided into four groups, with a latrine at each group. There is a shower house near the mess hall for all participants. The cabins have bunks with mattresses. The mattresses are on top of plywood, so they are firm. All are lower bunks and the mattresses can be placed on the floor, if desired. Everything else you need for your comfort you must provide: pillows, sheets, blankets or sleeping bag. There is no heat in the cabins, washrooms, or recreation hall. Come prepared for the changeable April weather.
Tent camping will be permitted for those who desire the privacy. Since our costs are the same either way, no discount is given for tenting. We can park automobiles near to the cabins.
Omnivorous and vegetarian meals will be provided from Friday evening through Sunday noon. Participants with special dietary needs should indicate them in the space provided for special needs on the registration form.
Parking is allowed near the cabins. We will be able to drive to near the cabins for unloading. Keep in mind, as you plan, that what goes to the cabin must come back from the cabin. You might leave some gear in your vehicle.
Vendors will have permitted hours of operation from 8:00 AM until midnight and be located in a single area to help promote foot traffic. The fee for vending is $10.00 and a donation of an item for our Magickal Auction is required. Indoor space, seating, tables, or tents are not provided, however electricity is available for a $5.00 fee. Limited space is available in the CSQ tents for smaller vendors who may be unable to provide their own tent. Your vendor fee includes a free link to your website on the CSQ web site as soon as you register and it will remain there for one year. Pre-registration is required to vend at CSQ. For more information please contact Liz Grimes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In case of any emergency onsite, please contact Security. We expect to have personnel trained in emergency medicine available on site. Security will be able to contact the Park Rangers.
There are no phones in Camp Lapihio. There is a pay phone at the visitor center, but that is some distance away from our site. If you must be in touch with office or sweetheart, bring your satellite phone.
We want everyone to have a healthy Spirit Quest. You are responsible for your medications (if any), and your own health. If you have any conditions that might require immediate attention, inform the staff when you register. If an emergency should arise, please let the staff know immediately.
Each person attending Spirit Quest is required to sign up for at least one two-hour community service shift. It is necessary that everyone take part in this shared labor for the gathering to function pleasantly for all participants. Please sign up for a job at Check-In when you arrive.
It is very important that we return the Site to the condition it was in before we arrived for Spirit Quest. The Staff consists of volunteers, who also pay to attend the event. In order to encourage all of the participants to help in this last community effort, we require that all registrants include a separate $25 check as a refundable deposit for site cleanup. This check will be returned at 3:30 PM on Sunday to all participants who have helped clean the site. Those who do not wish to participate in the cleanup will donate their checks to the Bart Wendell Scholarship Fund for attendance at CSQ '03. Checks that are not returned WILL be cashed. If you absolutely must leave before 3:30 PM, please make separate cleanup arrangements to allow your check to be returned to you.
No one can guarantee your safety. Read and honor the rules created for your own protection. We want everyone to have a safe Spirit Quest. There will be NO flame or fire of any kind in the cabins, this means no incense, candles, or smoking. There is no smoking allowed inside any camp structure.
These Hanes Beffy-T shirts must be ordered when you send in your registration. Sizes and prices are on the registration form. Adult 2XL and 3XL cost $15. All other adult and children's sizes are $13. T-shirt orders on registrations received after March 30, 2004, will not be filled.
