There are two kinds types of lodging available at the Geneva Center:
Lodge: There are 32 motel style bedrooms that are connected to the main building. These rooms will be assigned on a first come - first serve basis. In addition, two-rooms with single shower, or dual-occupancy with a single shower are available. Bedding and wash cloths/towels are provided.
Cabins: Each cabin has two bedrooms that sleep 8 people each (with handicap baths connected to each). Bedding and wash cloths/towels are not provided. A sleeping bag or blankets are recommended. The cabins have heating and air conditioning. Flashlights are useful, because the paths between the cabins and lodge are not lighted.
The Geneva Center has outdoor basketball, volleyball, and soccer. The Geneva Center has some equipment, but often attendees bring footballs, soccer balls, frisbees, etc. Bring sweats and clothes for hiking through the woods. Since these are outdoor activities, we will hope for good weather. If you have a favorite ping-pong paddle, bring it along as competition is plentiful.
