FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is camp?
Our spring session is April 26-30, 2020, followed by our fall session October 08-12, 2020. Join us for one – or both!
DO I NEED TO BRING EXTRA MONEY?
You are not required to bring any money to camp. There may be some extras that are available for purchase (TBD, sorry no deets just yet!) that you might dig and want to buy, so standby for information about partnerships and vendors.
HOW DO WE GET TO CAMP?
You are required to provide your own transportation to the camp drop site in Atlanta, Georgia (30316).
If you plan to ride the bus: You need to arrive between 12:00pmEST and 2:00pmEST on Sunday, April 26, 2020, and you will be leaving the drop site no later than 1:00pmEST on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Transportation to and from camp to the drop site will be provided via a suuuuper snazzy charter bus.
If you plan to drive yourself to camp: you will need to arrive at Camp between 4:30pmEST-5:30pmEST. Look for Leaders by the entrance sign!
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE AT CAMP
Other than basically amazing, it’s like this.
IS THERE CELL SERVICE?
Yes. Cell phones will be left in cabins, however, and are discouraged from use during the regular camp day. If there are TRUE emergencies, we will be able to notify any camper within seconds. But (thankfully), true emergencies are few and far between. This is a week to tune in, turn on, and drop out. Your phone will be there when you get back to reality.
WHAT ARE THE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS?
The camp will be divided into cabins. Each cabin will house between 12-14 campers and a Camp Leader. Each camper will sleep in a twin bunk and will be required to provide her own linens or sleeping bag as well as a pillow.
HOW ARE BUNKS ASSIGNED?
Bunks are assigned using a unique blend of intuition, the Harry Potter sorting hat, the guidance of our Camp Leaders, divination, and some luck of the draw.
WILL I BE REQUIRED TO STORE MY DAILY MEDICATIONS WITH THE CAMP NURSE?
how much does camp cost?

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
We will be sending you a comprehensive packing list, and one will be posted here as well. Just as an overview, though, you will want to bring: comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing; a swimsuit; athletic shoes; linens or a sleeping bag and pillow; toiletries; a book or two for pleasure reading; a flashlight,; crystals or gems; journal; headphones.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR CLOTHES?
Yup. Sorry, babe. If we weren’t sharing this camp space with others unaffiliated with Camp Hecate, we’d say drop all the trou. As it stands, though, you gotta at least wear SOME clothes. Fuck a bra, tho, amirite?
CAN I BRING ALCOHOL OR OTHER ILLICIT SUBSTANCES?
will there be wifi?
This is camp.
WILL I KNOW MY BUNK ASSIGNMENT BEFORE WE ARRIVE AT CAMP?
Very shortly before you leave for camp, you will be notified in a special way as to which bunk you have been assigned. You’ll also be provided with the contact information for your Camp Leader. This is part of the camp experience and we expect this to get bigger and better each session.
What will the weather be like?
Unpredictable. That’s the first rule of weather in Georgia: expect the unexpected. You’ll want to be prepared and bring a light rain jacket and a sweatshirt. Highs are around 70 with lows around 45 (that’s Fahrenheit, Canada…) and it rains about eight days out of the month. With the humidity and heat index it can feel like it’s 80.
WHERE IS THE NEAREST HOSPITAL? WILL THERE BE MEDICAL PERSONNEL ON STAFF?
Camp will have medical professionals on site. The nearest hospital (Mountain Lakes Medical Center) is 7 minutes / 1.9 miles away.
