Camping Information/Checklist – Bovay

Whether you’re a first-time camper or an old pro, a list can always help you remember those last minute items. The majority of the items on this list are obvious to most. The idea is to use this list to help remind you while you’re packing for our event.

Campers may arrive on Friday between 3:00 – 10:00 pm on Friday night. Check in at gate to gain camping site assignments.  Remember you are responsible for your Friday dinner.

The program begins on Saturday at either 9:00 or 10:00 am and runs until 5:00pm.

Please remember Bovay will be providing Lunch and Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday.
