Tenting is allowed in designated tenting areas in the warmer months. Because the tenting area may move between events, we will announce where tenting is permitted prior to each event. Do not keep food in your tent.
We encourage you to decorate your sleeping area. Please note that push pins, nails, staples, or anything that would leave a mark is not allowed in or on the buildings. Instead use command strips, sticky tack, suction cups, or anything that will not damage the building you are staying in. Remember, as always, to leave your sleeping area better than you found it.
Medical Sleep will be marked prior to each game. If you need Medical Sleep then email DRNYCoordinator@gmail.com with a Doctor’s note.
