Unlike last seminar, we are allowing for cold weather conditions and indoor accommodations. Please bring sleeping bags, mats, camp chairs (if desired), and two towels for personal use. You can even set up your tent inside. The weather can vary significantly in November so prepare for a 10 degree difference in temperature from the D.C. area in addition to winds.
