|Policy on Pets and Service Animals||05 Oct 2019|
The only animals allowed at MMNG are authorized, trained and vaccinated service animals who provide support to the attendee on a full-time basis (as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act). Service animals must be under the control of the handler at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered at all times. Attendees planning on bringing a service animal should notify MMNG via email (Contact Us Page) prior to May 15 to register their service animal.
If an attendee arrives at MMNG with any other animal, the attendee will be directed to camp in a non-populated area of the campground (where the animal must remain), or remove/board the animal as a condition of attendance.
|Come Early, Stay Late!||07 Feb 2019|
MMNG officially runs from 9:00 am on Wednesday through 12:00 noon on Sunday, but you are welcome to arrive early or stay late. The pre-gathering period from noon Sunday through Tuesday is very popular. MMNG will have exclusive use of Camp Gaea from 8:00 am on Monday until noon on Sunday. The camp is open to other groups and individuals before and after the event.
If you arrive before Sunday or wish to stay after MMNG, check in and pay at the registration building. For the MMNG event itself, MMNG organizers will collect fees and pay Camp Gaea in turn. This year the main camping ridge is rented out to another group who has exclusive use of the ridge until noon, Sunday June 12th. While all other areas of the camp are open for camping during this weekend, MMNG campers can begin setting up on the ridge only after noon, Sunday June 12th. Please be patient as you wait for a favored campsite to open up.
You can view the Camp's website and calendar of events at gaearetreat.org. Many wonderful and interesting people camp at Camp Gaea each year. Coming early and staying late is a great way to get a feel for what camp is like outside of the MMNG event.
