CSQ - Spring 2008 Misc Info


Miscellaneous Information


Omnivorous and vegetarian meals will be provided from Friday evening through Sunday lunch. 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.

Meal Times and Snacks for children: As last year, children are encouraged to gather at the bell before lunch and dinner with their parents - we will have a brief announcement session and blessing of the meal. Then children (with an assisting parent if necessary) will be at the head of the serving line. There will be special "kid friendly" selections available. Also, look for the popular snack table, that is accessible in-between meals, for children of all ages!


Parking is allowed only in designated areas. We will not be able to drive to the cabins for unloading. We will gather a few strong volunteers with carts or wheelbarrows to help you move your gear to your cabin. 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. Event registration is also required to vend at Spring Quest. Indoor space, seating, tables, or tents are not provided; however, electricity is available for a $5.00 fee. Your vendor fee includes a free link to your website on the CSQ website as soon as you register, and it will remain there for one year. For more information please contact Stephanie Taylor or Kara Mueller. Please include the vending form on page 26 with your event registration.

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 Rockingham County EMS. If you must be in touch with office or sweetheart, bring your cell 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.

Carolina Spirit Quest Rules

  • No pets
  • To ensure the safety and well-being of all our members, we ask that parents maintain supervision of their children at all times unless other arrangements have been made. If a child is overly disruptive during the Children's Learning Circle times, the parent will be notified within their own Learning Circle and requested to remedy the situation.
  • Consent Requirement - "It is the responsibility of the initiator of any sexual or other physical contact to positively ensure that consent is given before engaging in such contact."
  • Certain areas - such as the kitchen - can be dangerous for our younger participants, and because of this, these areas will be placed off limits. We request that, for your children's safety, you make sure that they abide by these rules.
