The festival goes on! You won’t melt, but we don’t guarantee that so bring an umbrella if weather is looking like it might get wet. There are indoor classrooms, as well as outside areas that we will be using.
Nature’s Classroom at the Sargent’s Center has a paved road to the cabins and main classrooms that you can walk on. Cars will not be allowed to drive around while the festival is open. Terrain is still a little uneven getting in and out of cabins, and through the wooded areas to the fire pit and yurts.
Food is included in the cost to attend TempleFest.
