CSQ - Spring 2006 Misc Info


Miscellaneous Information


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 — and no electricity in cabins. Come prepared for the changeable April weather.

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. We can park automobiles near to the cabins. Tent camping is not permitted at Camp Lapihio.


Omnivorous and vegetarian meals will be provided from Friday evening through Sunday noon. Friday lunch is optional and requires a $5.00 fee in addition to normal registration. Participants with special dietary needs should indicate them in the space provided for special needs on the registration form. Click here for more information on registration.


Parking is allowed near the cabins. We will be able to drive near to the cabins for unloading. Keep in mind that what goes to the cabin must come back from the cabin. You might leave some gear in your vehicle.


Due to NC Division of Parks and Recreation rules, there will be no vending at this event.

In An Emergency

In case of any emergency onsite, please contact Staff. We expect to have personnel trained in emergency medicine available on site. Staff 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.

Health Care

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, indicate them on your Registration form and also inform the staff when you sign-in onsite. If an emergency should arise, please let the staff know immediately.


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.
