The ranch house has a ground floor and a basement floor - both overlook the creek. Most sessions will be in the ground floor living area (pictured below) or around the big table (pictured above). Weather permitting, day sessions may move outside on the deck, arbour, or presented as a learning walk (paved paths only).
Current plans are for Gregath staff to provide all meals on the ground floor of the ranch house - dining area.
Meal Schedule (subject to change):
In addition to regularly scheduled meals, limited refreshments will be provided to attendees. Attendees should feel free to bring their own snacks. Plans for 2011, include access to kitchen facilities on both floors for attendees - including clean up, just like at home.
Our group will occupy the Ranch House, a bit away from the "main" part of campus.
Basic, family style, linens and towels will be provided by Cave Springs. If you prefer personal towels, special pillows/pillowcases, etc. please feel free to bring your own.
Activities that will be available to Genealogy in the Woods Retreat attendees include: Lots of genealogy and history related classes, strolling in the beautiful fall foliage/hiking/running/jogging paved trails (or blaze your own in 1,300 acres), "polar bear" swimming/wading, wildlife viewing/bird watching, basketball, Frisbee/disc golf, volleyball and more! Arrangements through Gregath, for an additional fee, may be made with Sky Ranch for horseback riding, paint ball, zip line, and other activities, given enough notice.
