Thing in
the Woods



Unavoidable Fees
If you present a "Thing" mailing addressed to you, the fee is $25 (just $5 over the Brushwood camping fee to cover mailing and incidental stuff). Anyone else pays $35 (that'll teach 'em!) Kids under 16 are FREE. Just pay at the door - its too late to send it in. See ya' there!

Some Considerations
Brushwood has plenty of fields and woods, campsites with hot showers (and flush toilets), a hot tub and a swimming pool (kids must have parental supervision), and complete clothing-optional privacy. Firewood and fire-pits are readily available. New York law mandates recycling, therefore

(we mean it).
The evenings can be chilly, so bring warm clothing and extra blankets. Registration opens Friday at 1:00pm. Admission will be closed each night from 1:00am to 8:00am.
