Each shared log cabin has three single beds, chairs, propane heaters, and reading lamps. Guests should bring a sleeping bag, pillow, extra blankets if desired, a flashlight for getting around at night, and a non-electric alarm clock.
Cabins do not have electrical outlets or plumbing. The heated bathhouse with private showers is nearby, and guests bring their own towels.
The “off-the-grid” ranch runs on limited solar power with backup generators. For this reason, guests should not bring electrical appliances such as radios, hair dryers, and crock pots as these items overload the system and can cause black-outs.
Camping and pets (with the exception of service animals) are not allowed.
There is no cell phone reception in the Lamar Valley and there is no Internet service. Many guests bring a calling card to use with the common phone.
Unless the program includes catered meals, guests bring and prepare all their own food. The kitchen is a community area where everyone does their own cooking and cleans up after themselves. It is equipped with gas stoves, a microwave, toaster, plates, silverware, and pots and pans.
The bunkhouse is open at all times and is the center of activity, housing classrooms, the kitchen, and bathrooms. Make yourself at home in the bunkhouse; meet new people; enjoy a midnight snack; relax with classmates and enjoy your experience!
