1. Do I have to camp if I attend? You do not have to camp to attend. Tent spaces are an add-on for those who do want to camp, and not a part of regular registration costs. If tent camping is not your thing, you are welcome to find other accommodations such as a local hotel. If you live nearby, you are welcome to day trip.
2. Are there bathrooms and showers with hot water? Yes. We will not select a campground that doesn't have at least basic bathroom and shower facilities.
3. Do I have to be a gay or bi to attend? While our activities are aimed at Queer men, we welcome men of all orientations and masculine identified transgender folks, we welcome men of all orientations who believe they would gain from the weekend.
4. Do I have to be Pagan to attend? No. We welcome all respectful seekers. Our activities and workshops are geared toward Pagan and earth-centered religions, and we will be hosting a few Pagan rituals during the weekend. If you are okay with this and the topics of the weekend catch your interest, please do join us for the weekend.
5. I'm a woman and I really resonate with the theme and topic of your retreat. Can I attend? We will not turn anyone away who feels they would gain from the weekend. That said, the focus of our weekend is brotherhood and our workshops and activities will be male and masculine focused.
6. Are vegetarian meals an option? Yes. One of the retreat planners is vegetarian so this is always a consideration. If we offer meals, there will be vegetarian options. If you are vegan, have food allergies, or other diet restrictions, please let us know before the retreat and we will try to accommodate you.
7. In your side menu, you have "Arcadia" in front of each menu item. Wouldn't it be easier and more readable to leave the "Arcadia" part out? Thanks for noticing. Our website front end only allows unique names for menu items, and doesn't allow duplication of menu item names on different menus. This has something to do with database integrity. Because our website hosts more than one event with similar menus, including the name of the gathering before each menu item seemed the best way to go.
