You can go see the chickens (check with the caretakers before you do!) but the gate must be kept closed or the cows will get out. You are welcome to collect the eggs. Please approach the cows with caution and don’t try and pet them.
You will have a starter box of kindling and wood to start your campfire. No bonfires meaning don’t let the fire get too big. You will need to make sure the fire is out before you leave for the night. There is a hose in the area if you need it. Smore sticks will be located with the smore stuff.
Only allowed at the gazebo by the pool or by the fire pit
Horseshoes and Volleyball Net
Both are available on the grounds
Please follow directions regarding trash posted in the kitchen. Trash will be collected nightly. Please use the bucket labeled “grounds” for coffee grounds and use the slop buckets for leftover food (says on it what can be put in there- no meat leftovers).
The thermostats are on the 2nd floor by the stairs and on the 1st floor by the bar. If you have the AC running, make sure to keep the doors/windows closed.
This is not part of the Carrville Inn property. Please be respectful of this area and do not walk on gravesites.
Four walkie talkies will be available for leaders to use for communication. They will be in the suite where leaders are staying and there is a charger to keep them charged. You can also give one to a staff staying in the cabin for easier communication.
Ending your retreat well
As leaders, you will need to make sure the van is returned in good condition (clean and free of trash). There will be a hand vac and wipes for you to use to clean the inside of the van upon returning to the Compass office. You can ask everyone on retreat to help clean before being picked up, if you’d like. You also need to make sure it’s filled up with gas before returning it. There is a gas card in the glove box and you can leave the gas receipt there after filling up.
Also, remember to send any pictures you take to Alyssa! 😊
