Waitlist?

When a camp session meets maximum capacity, new registrants are put on a waitlist.
When a spot opens up, the waitlisters are called in the order in which they enrolled. 

We hope to raise the max capacity after the 11th of May when the newest guidelines
for camps are released. Again, we will contact those on the waitlist first. 

Quilters are encouraged to enroll and get on the waitlist.

  • You may register online or by phone at 320-732-3218.

  • $50 non-refundable deposit per session will guarantee your spot.

  • Balance is due the first day of your session

Camp's COVID 19 Policy is linked at the bottom of this page.  Please be aware that Camp adjusts its policy as changes come in from the MN Dept of Health. Keep checking back.

WHAT ARE ACCOMMODATIONS LIKE?

We provide dormitory style housing with rooms that accommodate 2-7 guests, more if upper bunks are used.  The bathrooms are just down the hall. 

  • Mobility needs?  There are eight main floor rooms, which are held aside for guests with mobility needs.  Occasionally, guests needing main floor accommodations may be asked to share a room.  

  • Food allergies?  Help us help you by indicating food allergies when you register. Our food service manager will send you a menu two weeks before retreat which includes the alternatives we make available. Feel free to give Kari a call before you arrive, as she is happy to answer your questions.   320-732-3218 ext. 1010

  • Roommate requests?  When you register, list the first and last names of everyone you’d like housed in your room. 

  • Bedding? (TBD by Covid protocol closer to retreat time.) Currently, no linens are provided. Please bring your pillow, all bedding for a twin bed, bath sets and toiletries. (Note, there is one full-size bed in each Edlund room).

​​
Can I sew next to my friends?   When you register, list the first and last names of everyone in your quilting group. We will do our best to accommodate your table assignments.

Can I bring a side table or machine table? It is not recommended this year due to the new configuration of individual tables. If side tables block passage between tables or aisles, they will need to be removed. Please plan to bring a pressing mat for your personal 8’ sewing table.

Which quilt shops will be here?
Session 1 and 2 -  Quilt Haven on Main, Hutchinson, MN. Can't wait to to see what Beth is bringing!  (Nov 4-9).

Session 2 and 3 -  Gruber's Quilt Shop, Waite Park, MN. Looking forward to what KC has to share (Nov 10-14).

If there are projects offered by our guest vendors that require materials or a cost, or you need to register for the class, the details will be posted when they are available.

When can I sign up for massages?  Offered on Saturdays and Wednesday.  Choose a 30 minute or an hour long session.  Sign up a week in advance by calling 320-732-3218 or when you arrive at camp.
