I’m glad you decided to take the plunge! We’re always happy to see new faces at camp, so even though camp isn’t till August let me be the first to say Welcome!
As for Firewood, we have a fair bit stowed away from last year we plan to provide for campers again this year, and we haven’t decided if we are going to be purchasing more for camp on top of that yet. What we do provide however, is fair game assuming you don’t turn our firewood stash into an impromptu bonfire that’ll upset the rangers and forestry department
Happenings, apart from the major camp-hosted events are for the most part spread by word of mouth or the Happenings forum beforehand. The things CFT does host, like the costume contest and such we tend to announce during our meals so campers get an idea of the when and where.
And if you’re ever uncertain of a happening, just ask! Consider it a good opportunity to get to know your fellow campers on top of getting an idea about whats going about camp. We do also provide some handy little maps in our conbooks that give you an idea of where things when somebody says Red Camp or Green camp. This poorly focused, grainy pictures is the one we had last year:
Which is also useful for finding a camping spot! Like I said before, we have camp areas sorted by noise levels. Red being near the dance area and bulk of the parties tends to be where most of the late night happenings go down, and is for the noisier types. Green is the middle ground, mostly for the hangout and socialization area for a more mellow setting compared to Red. Blue is quiet camp, for those that want to chill around the fire, do board games, and sleep at night.
Once you know what camp you want to set up at, you just show up and find a spot to plop down your tent. Everything is first come first served, provided you’re not on top of a fire pit or in a camp facilities area like the Kitchen, Showers, Registration, or Dining Area. And naturally, if you’re unsure of where you like to camp, feel free to ask any of us here on staff or your fellow attendees, and we’ll try to get you settled in. We’re all a little weird, but we’re nice folks.
